Published Dec 08, 2017HBO's standalone miniseries Big Little Lies was perhaps a little more of a hit than the network expected, so we've long been speculating that it might make more. Now, HBO has made it official.
The network announced that we'll be getting seven more episodes featuring the California coastline and, presumably, plenty of oversized glasses of wine.
Taking over from Season 1 director Jean-Marc Vallée will be Andrea Arnold (American Honey, Fish Tank).
In a statement, Reese Witherspoon said, "I'm thrilled to be bringing back this talented team of artists. It gives us the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of these intriguing and intricate Monterey families and bring more of their stories back to the audience who embraced and championed them. I'm beyond excited to be working with talented and acclaimed director Andrea Arnold who will be at the helm. Andrea's unique storytelling style will be a welcome addition to the filmmaking team."
Most of the original cast is expected to return. The season will be written by TV veteran David E. Kelley, based on a story from Big Little Lies novelist Liane Moriarty.
The show is expected to shoot between March and August of 2018.
