If you didn't know about Big Little Lies before awards season, you probably have heard about it by now considering the show has been sweeping up awards like it's no tomorrow. The HBO show came off a highly anticipated and celebrated first season in 2017 that starred a crazy cast of A-listers: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley.
The show tells the story of Shailene Woodley's character, a single mother who struggles financially and the trouble she gets into when she moves to a California neighbourhood that is full of wealthy families. She befriends Nicole And Reese's characters who also have kids at the school that Shailene's son is enrolled at but from there drama and chaos ensue with other mothers in the area.
While the HBO series premiered on February 19th of last year and ended in April, the network has been tight-lipped about when the second season of the series would be announced, or if it was even happening at all. Though the idea of it being canceled seemed ridiculous considering big wigs Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman not only acted in the project but are also producers of the series.
Luckily, somewhat of a release date has finally been revealed but unfortunately, you aren't going to be as happy as you would think because you are going to have to wait until 2019. This isn't the first time that HBO has crushed our spirits with a ridiculously long wait time considering the schedule of Game of Thrones as well as the fact that we are still waiting for Westworld season 2.
The reason for the late release is because the stars of the series won't even start filming until the Spring, so a 2018 release date is practically impossible. Though we can expect to see all of the characters we know and love from the season back on board for a second round. Apart from the actual cast, unfortunately, there will be one person missing from the second season, being the initial director of the series, Jean-Marc Vallée, who will be replaced with Andrea Arnold.
While we wait, at least HBO has a ton of other things we can watch in the meantime, or you can just catch up on your Netflix to-watch list as well!
