Shailene Woodley Thinks ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 3 Will Happen Eventually

HBO opened a can of worms when the network decided to take the limited series, “Big Little Lies,” and surprisingly announce a Season 2 would be made. Suddenly, it didn’t turn into a conversation about just one more season of the award-winning, critically-acclaimed series, but instead, the discussion is always about when is another season coming? With Season 2 in the books and a number of awards already given, the last couple of years have seen fans anxiously awaiting news of Season 3. While the stars seem to be wanting it to happen, HBO has yet to confirm “Big Little Lies” will return. But Shailene Woodley thinks it’s more of a question of when it will come back versus if it will.

Speaking to THR, while promoting her new Netflix film, “The Last Letter to Your Lover,” Shailene Woodley was asked once again about the possibility of Season 3 of “Big Little Lies.” And it’s clear the actress is excited about the prospect, but it appears the big hindrance is getting everyone’s schedules to align properly.

“We all constantly say, ‘When are we doing season three? How do we make that happen?’ ” Woodley explained. “I’d like to say, knock on wood, that it is happening. The biggest thing is everyone’s schedules and getting the scripts written and just making a commitment.”

Obviously, it’s not just Woodley who needs an opening in her schedule. Cast members such as Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz, and others also need to find time to work on Season 3, which is no easy feat. That said, Woodley seems to believe that it will happen eventually, even if it does take some more time.

Previously, HBO executives have talked about just how cost-prohibitive the series is because of the ridiculously stacked cast involved in “Big Little Lies.” But in an era where content is king, even if you have to overpay for the services of A-listers, “Big Little Lies” Season 3 would be a big boost for the network and its streaming companion HBO Max. So, you’d have to assume everyone involved would be happy to write the checks to make it happen.

Considering it’s already been about two years since Season 2, there’s obviously no rush on Season 3. With those actresses involved, the second HBO announces a new season, fans will be primed and ready to go.
