On Sunday night, January 12, 2020, actress Nicole Kidman attended the Critic’s Choice Awards. At the event, she spoke about her hopes for the series “Big Little Lies.”


Kidman, 52, said:

“The [awards show] acknowledgment of that allows the possibility for the story to continue.”

Fans of the show are eagerly waiting for the series to be renewed for a third season. Although the actress didn’t win through her nomination, she still hoped it would open doors for “Big Little Lies.”

Kidman was nominated for best actress in a drama series for her role as abused widow Celeste Wright. She, unfortunately, lost out to Regina King for “Watchmen.”

The actress is the executive producer of the show alongside co-star Reese Witherspoon. The pair appears on the thrilling series with Shailene Woodley, Zoë Kravitz, Meryl Streep, and Laura Dern.


Women are getting the opportunity to shine


Kidman also stars in the film “Bombshell.” Speaking about how the series and movie have played a positive role for women actors, the actress continued saying:

“Either way, these are great roles for women. They are stories about women. They are reaching audiences that years ago they probably wouldn’t have had to opportunity to. And they create more work for all of us.”

Actress keen on returning for season 3


Kidman previously confirmed that she would return to the show if a third season was approved. She also hinted that the original cast would come back including the children.

HBO has not yet given an official announcement on whether “Big Little Lies” is being picked up or not. However, but Kidman and Melissa McCarthy have been linked to showrunner David E. Kelly’s adaptation of “Nine Perfect Strangers.”

This is another show adapted from a Lianne Moriarty novel and it’s set to feature on Hulu.

“Big Little Lies” renewal “not realistic”


HBO president Casey Bloys previously revealed that the likelihood of “Big Little Lies” coming back was “not realistic.” The reason for the statement rested solely on the fact that the main characters are very busy women.

The end of the series

Bloys noted that if the stars approached him and shared their availability, he would be very keen. However, he stated again that it was a far-fetched idea and confessed that season 2’s ending was meant as a “satisfying” end to the series.
