Big Little Lies is considered a mini-series with two seasons and seven episodes in each.

 

Every episode runs from 45 to 58 minutes on the whole. It was mostly shot in Monterey, California.

 

The whole series started airing on 19 February 2017 and ended on 21 July 2019.

The second season was directed by Andrea Arnold. Big Little Lies is produced by Barbara A. Hall and David Auge from Hello Sunshine, Blossom Films, and two other production companies.

 

Also, it was distributed through Warner Bros Television Distribution.

 

This series had a warm welcome and more love from people. People were fascinated by the great fit of the cast.

 

The first season was nominated for a lot of awards and they bagged a lot of them in almost all categories, acting, direction, and more.

 

 

Official Announcement And Release Date Of Big Little Lies Season 3

 

The second season of Big Little Lies was a massive hit and people couldn’t stop praising Andrea Arnold for making things come out great.

 

Also, the Program President at HBO said that he’s indebted to her for this great work.

 

But that same person has said that the idea of shooting the third season was unrealistic.

 

The creator of the series admitted that the second season was not in the plan.

 

But later, when they got ideas and some loopholes from the first season that needed to be filled they went for a second one without any hesitation.

 

The cast and crew have gone busy but the channel and productions are ready for season three.

 

They just would give a green light without thinking if the plan and the schedule are proper and more logical.

 

In October 2020, major news was revealed by Nicole Kidman during a press interview. She agreed that it’s true that the author of Big Little Lies is writing another story and that could possibly turn out to be the plot of the third season.

 

Not just the crew was excited to reunite but the fans also got their hopes high.

 

So, indeed Big Little Lies season three has a lot of reasons and chances to show up.

 

Let’s wait with all our hopes.

The first two seasons pulled up high ratings and millions of views. The finale of the second season was viewed by almost two million people during the airing of the series.

 

There are more views than that across the OTT and also, during the pandemic. So, let’s check what’s going on with season three.

According to Google Trends, the third season has been the talk of the town when the series was released.

 

Then it has been popular on and off from 2019 and has gradually come down.

Expected Plot Of Big Little Lies Season 3

 

As of now, there is no predictable plot for the next season as there is a switch in the story and something is yet to be written or in the process.

 

But this can be an expected plot that is drawn out with the happenings in the previous season.

 

If you retrace what happened at the end of season two, you might get reminded that the five women walked into the police station.

 

We’ll assume that the third season starts from there. So, what if Bonnie was going to confess that she has been a part of the murder, she pushed Perry from the stairs just after he attacked Celeste.

 

Also, the others will be with her and provide more details about the murder. But, wait for a second, if this happens, will the story end, or will it continue in the prison?

 

Well, we are not able to decide that right? That’s where the story of this series stands out from the other series.

 

We might assume a plot for the third season but one of the creators, in a press interview, said that the author of the original book is actually writing another one, thus giving hope that that book might possibly give us the plot for Big Little Lies season 3.

IMDb has given an 8.5/10 rating. Also, from the review, it is evident that most of the fans are women and they feel that the women cast has stolen the show.

There are a lot of heads up for the depiction of domestic violence, marital abuse, and trauma here.

 

There are people who totally support the depiction of the family infliction because that almost happens everywhere today.

 

But still, the series felt quite unrealistic here and there which didn’t work for some people.

Firstly, it went under 16 Primetime Emmy Award nominations for almost every field. Out of those, our series bagged eight awards.

Also, Ben Travers from IndieWire unexpectedly gave a B+ rating for this show, beautifully putting it as “an enjoyable epilogue”.

 

 

Production And Development Of The Show

 

The development of this movie started just after the book was released in August 2014.

 

It was first to be developed as a movie but later it turned out to be billed as a miniseries.

 

And then, Vallee was signed as the director of the series. The script and cast were discussed and decided.

 

Everything was well prepared and the shoot started in December 2015. The release of the first season was well announced in November 2016.

 

The teaser of the first season was released on HBO on October 16, 2016. And the trailer was released in the first week of December 2016.

 

The first season, as mentioned before, won a lot of awards and it was a massive hit.

 

When HBO planned to renew the series and go for a second season, the director of the first season said that there was no reason to make season two, it was a beautiful thing because it was just a one-time thing and he also thought that it would be great to leave it as it is.

 

But everybody else was okay with renewing the series. In December 2017, HBO announced that the series is going to be renewed and Andrea Arnold was going to be the director of that season while Vallee was still an executive producer.

 

There were ups and downs going on between the crew members but they managed to finish producing the series.

 

 

Why Watch Big Little Lies Season 3?

 

Personally, I feel that this series has a good depiction of women and that they are more than wives and mothers.

 

This series clearly gives an outline of what they are and how they feel. The writing so far has been so empathetic.

 

The crew has worked together for two seasons and the outcome is great. So, Big Little Lies season three will also be a great show and will never fail to fascinate you.

 

Also, the performances are really outstanding. Also now, through this series, we can expect a different plot and new twists and turns.

 

The season has ended in a thread line and we never know what is going to be there on the other side.

 

Overall, I think that Big Little Lies season three deserves to be watched for the whole outcome and the hard work of the crew members.

 

Moreover, the series is thrilling and fun to watch already, so we can expect a lot from the next season.

 

SPOILER ALERT!!

There’s a great war between Celeste and her mother in law who wants to take custody of her grandchildren.

 

When there’s a war between these two, Celeste shows evidence that clearly shows how abusive her husband was.

 

Finally, her mother-in-law, Mary Streep says that she never expected her son to be this way.

 

When everybody knew what was going on with Bonnie, a lot of people were shocked by the fact that she didn’t feel good about her husband.

 

She tells her mother “I settled for a man I don’t…” and doesn’t finish the sentence.

 

Then, she tells Nathan how she feels about him. The fact that her marriage didn’t work well was also one other thing that bothered her so much.

 

There is a lot more to spoil but I would rather suggest you watch the show and expect unexpected twists.
