'Big Little Lies' Season 2 Would Explore Celeste & Bonnie's Tragic Pasts
I've got some really great news! Big Little Lies Season 2 could really be happening and we may even have a hint at what it could be about. This is really an epic piece of information for fans of the hit HBO miniseries that details the lives and intricate inter-minglings of five women living in Monterey, California.
The huge reveal came in a recent interview in which, Liane Moriarty, the author of the novel upon which the series is based, told Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald that she has been approached by the show's producers for a possible sequel of the ratings winning series. She said,
I don't know about you guys, but I was really sad when the show's finale concluded. And while it was a wonderful conclusion to Seaosn One, I felt that there was more that needed to be divulged about the lives of Celeste, Madeline, Bonnie, Jane and Renata. I specifically want to see what will happen next for Celeste, following her abusive husband Perry's death outside of the school's fundraiser.
His demise would ultimately become the defining moment of the show and serve as the bonding point for the group of ladies. Although it was the pinnacle of the dramatic tale, the incident would bring the storyline to a close, as it did in the novel, leaving many questions unanswered about the future of the women of Monterey. However with fans, like myself, anxiously longing for more, it sounds like the show's front runners are scrambling for ideas in an effort to bring a sequel to awaiting viewers.
Moriarty hinted that Bonnie's role could be possibly expanded on screen, as there was more to her story in the book. She explained,
And just as I had hoped, the novelist also discussed the possibility of exploring more of Celeste's life following Perry's death. She said,
The show's executive producer and lead star, Reese Witherspoon, has also expressed her support for the project on Facebook Live, encouraging fans to reach out to the book's author for ideas. She explained,
However, not everyone is on board for BLL's second coming. The show's director and executive producer, Jean-Marc Vallée, totally scoffed at the idea of bringing the miniseries back to life in an interview with Hollywood Reporter. He explained,
I must admit that the mere thought of the miniseries possibly returning for Season 2 is enough excitement for me. Meanwhile, I'm just going to keep my finger crossed that everyone gets on the same page, and hope that the show returns with the same drama that made it so riveting in Season 1.
