'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.

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?”
