'Big Little Lies' Director Explains Why a Second Season Shouldn't Happen

Jean-Marc Vallee, the director of the entire HBO limited series Big Little Lies, is speaking out to explain why he doesn’t think a second season should happen.

The series was based on a novel and the full story was wrapped up in the first season, but star and executive producer Reese Witherspoon said conversations for a second season are currently being held.

Liane Moriarty, who wrote the book, has some ideas about what a second season could look like.

Here’s what Jean-Marc said about a possible second season: “The detective doesn’t want to let go and that’s how we finish that. And we think, ‘Did they do the right thing? What will happen?’ Now it’s up to the audience and their imagination to figure out. To do a season two, I’m not for it. Let’s move on and do something else! If there’s an opportunity to reunite with Reese, Nicole and these characters of course, I’ll be a part of it, but Big Little Lies One is a one-time deal. Big Little Lies Two? Nah. The end is for the audience to talk about. Imagine what you want to imagine and that’s it. We won’t give you a season two because it’s so good like this. Why spoil it?”

    At first I was sad about this ending, but the ending was so good and wrapped up everything nicely, so i’m now ok with it being only one season.

    I loved the ending all wrapped up, all questions answered. Great little mini series, great acting all around, especially the children.

    I have to agree – it was beautifully done and I really loved the characters but I’m okay to say goodbye to them. They answered all the questions and there is no need to show me a “where are they now”. I hope they all can live a happy life after all that has happened. But I would love to see the actresses in another project together. They had a really great chemistry
