While we don’t know what the outcome of these conversations will be, Reese Witherspoon confirmed that conversations about Big Little Lies Season 2 are happening. We’d definitely prefer to say “Reese Witherspoon confirmed that Big Little Lies Season 2 is happening,” full stop, but it’s encouraging to know they’re exploring the opportunity. Honestly, part of us feels like we should probably let what was basically a perfectly crafted season of television stay perfect, but let’s be real — we’re greedy for more of these characters we’d grown to love, and anybody with any sense would watch Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman read a phone book to one another, so we’re totally on board for a second season.

At an event, Reese Witherspoon was asked about the potential for a second season, and she told E! News:

We’re cautiously optimistic, because while it’s great that they’re discussing it — and especially discussing it with the author of the original source material — we also have to keep in mind how difficult it must be to schedule that many powerhouse actors into one show…and how expensive. So even if the ideas are there, the logistics aren’t exactly simple.

So basically, cross your fingers, friends.
