HBO has delivered several amazing shows over the years. Big Little Lies is one such show and is based upon the novel by the same name written by Liane Moriarty. Created by David E Kelly, the American TV drama debuted on HBO on 19th February 2017.
Big Little Lies revolves around five wealthy young women residing in Monterey, California called the Monterey Five. Their freewheeling lives are shattered when a murder takes place in the town unraveling a can of worms. Big Little Lies received 19 major nominations in 2018, winning 13 awards.
When does Big Little Lies return?
There is NO official announcement regarding the renewal of the show for season 3. But at the same time, it sure that the show hasn’t been canceled yet. During an interview, the show’s creator said that there are no plans for the third season. However, Reese Witherspoon recently said that the makers are exploring the idea of Season 3. So if season 3 is greenlit, then it is expected to release in June 2021 based on its history.
What To Expect From The New Season?
Season 2 finale was met with mixed reviews but great ratings. Although, this has left the fans wondering if the Monterey Five will be back for season 3. HBO programming president Casey Boys recently told ET that just like season 2, he is skeptically approaching season 3.
After Season 1, it became clear to everyone that there is a story to tell. But as per reports, there is no obvious story to tell after season 2. We finally got to see the showdown between Celeste and Mary Louise at the end of season 2. At the end of season 2, Bonnie confessed that she pushed Perry down the stairs and turned herself in. Season 2 managed to wrap itself up neatly but there is still something left on the cliffhanger. The cliffhanger when all the women go to visit Perry’s grave but the body is missing. The second season has left the fans with a lot of unanswered questions.
Would The Police Exhume Perry’s Body? Or is Perry alive?
This means that season 3 will pick up after the events of Season 2 and will hopefully answer those questions. In an interview with Deadline, Nicole Kidman said that if season 3 happens, there will be a long story to tell.
