HBO’s Big Little Lies (it was shown on Sky Atlantic in the UK), has been one of the crime dramas of the year so far. The tale of affluent, Californian women in meltdown was a brilliant whodunit with each episode unpeeling the layers of feuds, insecurities and strained family relationships. It boasted a stellar cast (Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern among them), and the news is this: it’s coming back for a second series.
The subversive, darkly comedic drama ‘Big Little Lies’ will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting,” says the logline for the next chapter. “Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode … the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.”
The show’s seven-episode second season will be directed and executive produced by Andrea Arnold, who dazzled audiences last year with the critically acclaimed road film “American Honey.” David E. Kelly will once again write the scripts, and also will be executive producer.
What’s more, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman have been confirmed to star, with other cast members in negotiation to also return.
