Iain Armitage would be more than happy to come back to Big Little Lies.

On the May 16 episode of Live with Kelly and Mark, the 15-year-old actor told hosts Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos that he would be “honored” to reprise his role as Ziggy Chapman, the son of Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley), in a potential third season of the series.

After Ripa, 53, showed Armitage a photo of him from the HBO drama, the Young Sheldon star remarked, “I think I’d just turned 7 there. That’s crazy. I like that hairstyle, I think I could pull it off. Should I cut it off?”

“I haven’t heard anything fully officially yet, but when such incredible intelligent people as our leading ladies start talking, I think it’s pretty hard not to listen,” he continued in praise of Woodley, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and Zoë Kravitz. “I’d be honored to be back.”

In November 2023, Kidman, 56, seemingly confirmed a third installment of the hit limited series.

“I loved Big Little Lies because it sort of came along at a time in my life when I had my children, and I was thinking I was going to retire, and then this situation came along, where Reese Witherspoon and I were able to produce that show. And then all of you watched it and made it a massive success,” she said during an undisclosed fan event. “And we will be bringing you a third one, just FYI.”

All five lead actresses have expressed interest in returning for a third season. While on a video chat with Dern, 57, Witherspoon, 48, said, “We want to do it.” However, the Legally Blonde star stipulated that they were “trying to come up with the right story” before proceeding with the show.

In a December 2023 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Woodley, 32, teased that a third season could bring back the child actors who played the kids, now all grown up.

“What is exciting about the possibility of a third season. What does life look like for those people who are not children anymore?" she said of the potential season 3 storylines.
