Big Little Lies Season 3 Is To Be Renewed Yet [2023 Updates]

Big Little Lies Season 3


Big Little Lies can easily become your new addiction when you start watching it. Here, let me tell you a spoiler-free review of the series.


The scene starts with somebody being dead in a suburban American town and somehow three mothers from a great background are involved in this case.


In this series, there are two things not revealed initially. One is, who is the murderer and the other is who has been murdered.


That is what keeps the audience engaged. Talking about the second season, while the secret keepers are keeping the secret, there is a lot of fallout from the decisions made by the main characters and Perry’s mother plays a perfect role.


This season just sucks everybody into it within the seven episodes. Even people who are not much of a fan of drama would agree that it is an awesome watch.


Now, the talk is going to be all about season three. Here’s all that you need to know about Big Little Lies Season 3.




Everything We Know So Far About Big Little Lies


This American Drama series was created based on a novel, Big Little Lies, that was released in 2014.


The book was authored by Liane Moriarty. This series premiered on HBO in 2017. The book and the series are also under the genres of mystery and dark comedy.


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 first season was directed by Jean-Marc Vallee and that was changed in the second season.


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, including 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.


Nicole Kidman, one of the cast members has shown her interest in the third season multiple times and says that it will be interesting to reunite with other cast members once again.


Not only 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. 


But recently in an interview, Zoë Kravitz said that after the death of the beloved director of the series Jean-Marc Vallée, creating the show again won’t feel the same and it is heartbreaking as he was the visionary behind it. And the show is done. 


So, it feels like there won’t be a new season anytime soon but many fans are still hoping for an update from the network. 


Unfortunately, we haven’t got any official renewal or cancellation and it’s still not clear why we haven’t heard any update even in 2023.


Let’s wait with all our hopes.




Popularity Details Of Big Little Lies Season 3


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.


Google trends for "big little lies season 3"


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


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


As the trend says, the number of people who are expecting season three has reduced and besides some loyal fans, others have forgotten it. Seems like people are slowly just giving up on the idea of season 3. 


Google Searches Across the Globe

From Google trends, it’s visible that searches were on pick during 2019 and then declined afterwards. But still, globally, close to 55K people are curious about season 3.


The global volume states that people from the USA, Canada, the UK, and Australia are great supporters.



Fans are tweeting asking “When is Big Little Lies Season 3 coming out?” Also, the most recent posts are from September 2020 just after Reese Witherspoon posted a picture with the other female cast of Big Little Lies.


Also, just after her posting this, people took it as a hint for the third season.




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 had been a part of the murder, and 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 writing another one, thus giving hope that that book might give us the plot for Big Little Lies season 3.



Online Reactions For Big Little Lies Season 3


In this age of the internet, we can easily find how popular or how good something is.


While everything works on reviews and ratings some people decide to watch a movie or a show after knowing how people react to it.



Reddit reaction on big little lies season 3


Throughout Reddit, people assume that the stories that Reese Witherspoon posts about Big Little Lies are more than a hint that there are possibilities for a third season.


But still, there are certain entertainment groups on Reddit that say the third season cannot happen anytime soon and hit fans with reality.



People have talked about the first two seasons, But there is not much talk about the third season on Quora.


But some questions ask “Has the Big Little Lies series ended?” and “Will Big Little Lies be back?”.



We know our Instagram fans, there are fan art and possible plot ideas for the next season all over Instagram.


And Reese Witherspoon’s stories with the cast and the other one where she says she misses Big Little Lies has gone viral.


And that has also made fans highly expect the next season.



Why There Should Be A Big Little Lies Season 3?


From my point of view, it would be justice to have another season. The series is mindblowing and it has a good fan base.


The actors who have performed, the staff members who have toiled on the film, and the viewers who have supported the series deserve another season.


Moreover, since the last season ended, people have been curious and are expecting another season.


They are expecting a fast-moving, thrilling and interesting plot that will put them on the edge of their chairs and make them bite their nails.


Also, now that the author Liane Moriarty is writing another book, fans would want a visualized version of that story to feed their curiosity.


Fans would be super satisfied if that happened. With all hopes, let’s expect any update on another season of Big Little Lies.

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 announced in November 2016.


The teaser of the first season was released on HBO on October 16, 2016. 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.


However, everyone else approved of the series’ renewal. While Andrea Arnold would be the season’s director and Vallee would remain an executive producer, HBO announced in December 2017 that the series would be renewed.


Ups and downs were going on among the crew members but they managed to finish producing the series.



Why Watch Big Little Lies Season 3?


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


This series 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 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.



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 is.


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.
