Sadly, it doesn't look like we'll be returning to Monterey, California anytime soon. Actress Zoë Kravitz has confirmed that there won't be another season of the hit series, Big Little Lies, following the death of director Jean-Marc Vallée. "Unfortunately, it’s done," she said.
The news comes after Kravitz gave an interview with Variety and shared that there were no new plans to move forward with the show.
“We talked about doing a Season 3 a lot," she said in the interview. "Unfortunately, Jean-Marc Vallée, our incredible director, passed away this last year. It’s heartbreaking. I can’t imagine going on without him. He really was the visionary for that show. Unfortunately, it’s done.”
Kravitz's remarks follow an interview that her BLL-costar Laura Dern gave to Entertainment Tonight back in October, which gave fans hope that the show might return.
“I mean, we would all love nothing more, we’re like family, just very lucky. I say, let’s hold out hope. Let’s keep asking, it might just come true," she said at the time.
But now that doesn't seem like it's the case.
"I don’t think it is,” Kravitz said, speaking of whether or not the show will return.
Vallée died back in December 2021, after suffering a heart attack in his cabin outside Quebec, Canada. Vallée, who also directed “Dallas Buyers Club," and “Wild," was only 58 years old when he died.
The news is heartbreaking for fans who loved the series. "I’ll never recover from this TBH," @TalesOfHunter wrote on Twitter. "we really lost," @suripeep agreed. "This hurts because Big Little Lies was good TV, and I totally get it," @maximoffvvanda added. "This is a shame, loved this show," @DavesXenaFever wrote.
We understand why they felt they couldn't go on with the series. But we're more than happy to re-watch the first two seasons of this pretty much perfect show.
