HBO President Says Third Season Of ‘Big Little Lies’ Is ‘Not Realistic’

If we ignore this news, does it make it not true? Because no one is going to want to believe that “Big Little Lies” likely won’t be coming back for a third season.

The hit HBO show is currently in the second season, with the addition of Meryl Streep, but HBO president Casey Bloys is addressing if fans will see a third.

“I love this group of people – I would do anything with them,” Bloys told TVLine. “But the reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood. We have deals with some of them — Nicole [Kidman] is doing her next show [‘The Undoing’] with us. I just think it’s not realistic.”

“Look, if they all came to me and said, ‘We worked out all of our schedules!’ – then sure,” he added laughing. “But I just don’t think it’s realistic.”

Although one glimmer of hope is that season two will at least end with some closure. “Season 2 was a chance for everyone involved to end [the franchise] in a way that feels satisfying,” Bloys concluded.

Season two of “Big Little Lies” will wrap up on July 21.
