- Liane Moriarty, the author of Big Little Lies, has revealed that she has an idea for a spin-off.
- Season 2 was plagued by behind-the-scenes drama, but Nicole Kidman has already expressed her interest in doing a third season.
- Moriarty explained that she's particularly interested in following the Monterey Five's children when they're older.
Big Little Lies Season 2 is over, and Season 3 is looking unlikely, at least right now.
But Liane Moriarty, who, of course, wrote the novel on which the show is based, is already cooking up ideas for a future spin-off.
Speaking to Variety at the show's Season 2 premiere in New York, Moriarty said, "The only thing I had sometimes thought, even before any of this had happened, was maybe jumping ahead to when the children are in high school—years ahead. So, that's a possibility, but not for years to come. I feel like I would need a break, too, before I did that."
Moriarty explained what that spin-off might look like and said, "That would be for me, for a book." She continued, "Which maybe wouldn't even have the same characters. Maybe I'm in the same town. But I don't know. It's just thoughts."
The children of the Monterey Five have always been central to the plot of Big Little Lies. The series revolves around the mothers of a group of children who attend the same school, and as it transpires in Season 2, some of whom share the same father. Following the fates of the Monterey Five's children certainly sounds like an idea that could carry some weight at a later date.
In a recent interview with News Corp Australia, Nicole Kidman revealed that she'd be open to filming more Big Little Lies. The actress said, "I think we would love to do a season three because there is certainly ideas," continuing, "but we would not do it without all of the same people involved … even the kids."
