Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon Tease ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 3

Stars hint at progress, fueled by fan demand and insider enthusiasm

Nicole Kidman and her “Big Little Lies” co-star Reese Witherspoon recently reunited for a Vanity Fair video interview, where they briefly touched on the much-anticipated third season of their Emmy-winning HBO series. Kidman, who has frequently mentioned the possibility of Season 3, found herself once again addressing the topic.

“This one has already said too much,” Witherspoon remarked, playfully pointing to Kidman’s previous comments.

Kidman confessed to her excitement, admitting she may have let some details slip prematurely. “We need to shut up. There’s a whole thing about how you should never talk about something until you’ve done it because if you talk about doing it then it’s the dopamine hit of doing it and you feel like you’ve done it. It’s a scientific study,” she explained.

Despite her caution, Kidman provided an encouraging update: “We’re moving fast and furious. Liane [Moriarty] is delivering the book. We’re in good shape.”

In January, Kidman told Variety that she and Witherspoon were “texting every day” about a third season. She later revealed to Elle magazine in March that her daughter, Sunday Rose, played a pivotal role in reigniting the project. After finishing Season 2, Sunday was adamant about the need for another season and even critiqued her mother’s character arc.

“My daughter is the one who watched both of the series and went, ‘Okay, there’s just no question, there has to be a third,'” Kidman said. “She’s like, ‘Celeste, she’s not coping in the second one, what is she doing? I could kind of see the point of view of Mary Louise.'”

Kidman portrays Celeste, who, in the second season, must navigate the complexities of keeping her husband’s death a secret from his intrusive mother, Mary Louise, played by Meryl Streep.

HBO and Max content chairman/CEO Casey Bloys expressed his readiness for Season 3 earlier this year. “Where you have all these stars, you’ve got to get their schedules in line, we have to get it written,” Bloys told Variety. “So, there’s a lot that needs to be done. It’s very early stages right now. The entire cast is doing shows and movies, and everybody’s very busy. But it’s a very special group. They love working together. And when they land on an idea, I believe they will make it happen. We’re excited when they’re ready, and we will take those steps when they’re ready.”
