- Zoë Kravitz gave an update on TikTok about a possible “Big Little Lies” season three.
- The star explained that the show is finished.
- Kravitz said that she can’t see it happening after director Jean-Marc Vallée died last year.
HBO’s “Big Little Lies” debuted to plenty of critical acclaim back in 2017. Although it was intended to be a limited series, the huge success and online discussion about it led to a second season, which arrived in 2019.
The show features an impressive collective of actors, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley, as the group eventually called the “Monterey Five.”
But while the first two seasons were hugely popular, earning an 89% critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes, Kravitz has said it isn’t coming back for a third outing.
The “Fantastic Beasts” and “The Batman” star shot down hopes for another chapter in a TikTok video for GQ, explaining that there were originally discussions about coming back for season three, but those plans were scrapped after director Jean-Marc Vallée passed away in 2021.
Kravitz said: “I don’t think it is. We talked about doing a season three a lot, but unfortunately, Jean-Marc Vallée, our incredible director, passed away this last year.
The star went on to say that Vallée was the driving force behind the show.
Kravitz added: “I just can’t imagine going on without him. He really was the visionary for that show. So, unfortunately, it’s done.”
Vallée passed away at the end of 2021 due to a fatal cardiac arrhythmia. He was also known for working on HBO’s “Sharp Objects,” adapted from Gillian Flynn’s book of the same name, as well as directing Matthew McConaughey in “Dallas Buyers Club” and Witherspoon in “Wild.”
Thankfully, the end of “Big Little Lies” season two wraps up most of the plot points in the series, as Bonnie (Kravitz) chooses to confess to killing Perry, and goes to the police station with the rest of the Monterey Five.
