LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The big little truth about the beloved HBO series is out and fans are not going to like it. 'Batman' star Zoe Kravitz recently confessed that the hope that 'Big Little Lies' will come back with a third season is pretty much non-existent as of now. HBO's 'Big Little Lies' starred Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, and Kravitz as the five women in Monterey, California, who become embroiled in a murder investigation. Alexander Skarsgard, Adam Scott, James Tupper, and Jeffrey Nordling also featured in supporting roles. For the second season, none other than Meryl Streep joined the main cast while Kathryn Newton and Iain Armitage were upgraded following their appearances in recurring capacities.

People were really waiting for the third season. But now, because of an unfortunate event, there will be no third season renewal by HBO, and the six iconic ladies will not be seen reprising their roles. Although fans were secretly hoping for the series' comeback, Kravitz kept no such hope alive during a recent 'online interview' that saw her go undercover on the Internet and answer fans' burning questions. Kravitz announced 'Big Little Lies' is over following the death of director and executive producer Jean-Marc Vallee.

During the video interview hosted by GQ Magazine, Kravitz revealed the bitter truth 50 seconds into answering all the fan questions. Kravitz was asked when was 'BLL coming back?'  “I don’t think it is,” Kravitz said about the chances of 'Big Little Lies' returning for Season 3. “We talked about doing a Season 3 a lot. Unfortunately, Jean-Marc Vallee, 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.”

He was apparently the visionary mind behind the HBO series. Unfortunately, the 'Sharp Objects' director died in December 2021 after suffering a heart attack in his cabin outside Quebec City, Canada. The filmmaker was only 58 years old at the time. Vallee directed all seven episodes of the original 'Big Little Lies,' and he stayed involved creatively even after Andrea Arnold took over directing duties for the show’s second season. For his work on the first season of 'Big Little Lies,' Vallee was awarded the Emmy for directing a limited series, movie, or special.

Regardless, the series has received critical acclaim, particularly for its writing, directing, acting, cinematography, and soundtrack. The first season received 16 Primetime Emmy Award nominations and won eight, including Outstanding Limited Series,  and acting awards for Kidman, Skarsgard, and Dern. The trio also won Golden Globe Awards in addition to a Best Miniseries or Television Film win for the series. Kidman and Skarsgard also received Screen Actors Guild Awards for their performances.
