Big Little Lies Season 3: Everything You Need To Know

today5 March 2021

Background

What’s next for Monterey Five? Did you know that when Big Little Lies was produced in 2017, it was originally intended to be a standalone series? They even won the coveted Outstanding Limited Series Emmy that year, whoops. Yet, we were overjoyed when a second season appeared on our screens in 2019, bringing the ‘Monterey Five’ – Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Renata (Laura Dern), Jane (Shailene Woodley) and Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) – back to our screens.

Now, two years later, we’re waiting with bated breath to see if there will be a third season – but it seems we may be waiting a bit longer than we hoped. While there has been lots of speculation as to whether the award-winning show will return, there has been no confirmation as of yet. However, we get to dig some details of everything we do know, below:

Who is starring in Big Little Lies season 3?

If the hit show is to come back to our screens, it’s likely it will feature the same all-star cast as before. Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz and Laura Dern should be certainties as these five actresses make up the core cast of the show.

Season 2 saw the welcome addition of Meryl Streep playing Nicole’s pesky on-screen mother-in-law, so she could make a return for the hypothetical third season. Alexander Skarsgård will likely return for flashbacks as well, and Adam Scott, who plays Reese’s on-screen husband, should return too.

What are the storylines for the third season?

Last year Nicole spoke to iHeart Radio and said that Lianne Moriarty, the author of Big Little Lies, was “working on a book” which could serve as the treatment for the third season. “There’s a story being concocted,” Nicole added at the time. “Our group of women all want to do it. It’s more the kernel of ideas that just need to be solidified.”

The end of season 2 saw a face off between Nicole and Meryl’s characters and the lie the Monterey Five kept (of how Perry died) threatened to tear the group apart. The ending saw the group arrive at the police station and walk in together, seemingly appearing to turn themselves in. While we don’t know this for certain, a third season could give us the clarity we need.
