Nicole Kidman who made a surprise appearance with husband Keith Urban on CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen drops a hint to the next Big Little Series season 2 release. When asked by Cohen about when the second season will premier on HBO, Kidman replied, “It’s looking like June. I think June.” The 51-year-old actor who plays Celeste on HBO’s adaptation of the Liane Moriarty novel said the season two is still in the post-production phase.
"June, I think. We're looking at June," Kidman said when host Andy Cohen asked her about the premiere date. "We're still in the midst of editing it, but thanks for asking 'cause we're glad that people are excited about it," she added.
Big Little Lies,” the story of three troubled women (Kidman, Shailene Woodley, and Reese Witherspoon) who get tangled up in a murder investigation, was a smash hit for HBO in the spring of 2017. To up the excitement for fans even further, the second season will have veteran actor and multiple Oscar winner Meryl Streep along with Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley.
The Big Little Lies season two, having seven episodes, is being directed by Andrea Arnold. Kidman and Witherspoon also serve as executive producers on the show.
Kidman also added: “The reason we did [a second season] is because audiences were like, ‘You have to do a second season!'”.
HBO is, however, yet to officially announce the show's premiere date.
