Big Little Lies had us hooked when it first appeared on our screens all the way back in 2017. Over seasons 1 and 2, we followed the women of Monterey, California, through some seriously *gripping* drama and, naturally, viewers are after more.

It's been over three years since season 2 dropped in June 2019, but will a season 3 finally be happening? Here's everything we know so far.

What have the cast said about Big Little Lies season 3?

In November 2022, Zoe Kravitz told GQ she doesn't think a third season of Big Little Lies is on the cards, after the show's director Jean-Marc Vallée sadly passed away in December 2021.

"I don’t think it is [happening]," she began. "We talked about doing a season three a lot and, unfortunately, Jean-Marc Vallée, our incredible director, passed away this last year, which is heartbreaking, and I just can't imagine going on without him. He really was the visionary for that show. So, unfortunately, it's done.”

Series lead Nicole Kidman previously discussed a potential series 3 with SiriusXM radio host Andy Cohen, and she definitely sounded like she'd be up for it. Appearing on the Radio Andy show, Nicole was asked, "If you could revisit something that you've done, make a sequel of something or revisit a character that you've already played, is there one that you think ... there's more story to be told?"

Nicole was quick to bring up the HBO series, answering, "I think we'd all love to do a Big Little Lies season 3, you know?" However, she added that nothing has been confirmed, replying "I don't know" when asked whether there might be a third series.

She explained, "I know that we would, all, we all are very, very good friends and the idea of working together again. I mean, literally Laura [Dern] just texted me. And I was meant to see Reese [Witherspoon] and Laura last night, but...I was working."

Nicole went on to say that sadly a season 3 "is not on the cards" but that she would still "like to do it".

She continued, "The idea of being together and, you know, point in your life where you go, ‘It's nice to be around the people I like being around and working with the people I like working around, let alone on a ... hit show like that. So, you know, but that is not, it's not on the cards, but yeah, we would like to do it."

Here's hoping an S3 appears on the cards very soon!

Is there a Big Little Lies season 3 release date?

As Big Little Lies season 3 sadly hasn't been confirmed yet, there's also no word on a potential release date. Season 1 was originally released in February 2017, while season 2 came out around 16 months later in June 2019. Judging by Zoe Kravitz's comments in November 2022, the cast haven't been working on a third season at all, so it would be years before we saw episodes in action.

Nicole Kidman previously sounded hopeful about the prospect of a potential season 3, and she hinted that other leading cast members would be up for it too.

She told Marie Claire Australia in October 2020, "Reese [Witherspoon] and I talk or text once a week. She’s just moved back to Nashville and we’re really close. We all just want to work together again. I texted Zoë [Kravitz] and Laura [Dern] and they’re in. [Writers] David [E. Kelley] and Liane [Moriarty] have a really good idea for it. Watch this space!"

Other cast members previously included Shailene Woodley, Meryl Streep and Alexander Skarsgård. Here's hoping we'll all be back in Monterey ASAP.
