Nicole Kidman has claimed that there is currently no third season of Big Little Lies in the pipeline – but says that she would “love to” return to it later down the line.


Speaking while promoting her new limited series The Undoing, which is also written by Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley, the actress commented on how busy much of the cast are – with the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern working on several other projects.

Kidman said, “Right now look at Laura, I don’t think we’d ever get Laura back. She’s working in so many different things right now.

“So, I think everyone’s working in incredibly good places, which is a lovely thing to have come out of that show,” Kidman said. “Hopefully we can all collide again at some point.”

Series two of Big Little Lies itself had not originally been planned, with the first seven-episode series originally intended as a standalone, self-contained miniseries – so it’s not that surprising that there are currently no plans for a third run.

The first two seasons were both huge hits with viewers and critics alike, with the second season – which was directed by Andrea Arnold and starred Meryl Streep – airing last summer.


In the meantime, The Undoing, which is based on the book You Should Have Known by Jean Hanff Korelitz, sees Kidman star alongside Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland, and is set to premiere in May of this year.
