At the premiere of her latest drama series, “Expats,” Nicole Kidman tantalizingly hinted at the eagerly awaited return of the acclaimed drama, “Big Little Lies.” Speaking exclusively to ET’s Rachel Smith in New York City, Kidman revealed that discussions about the show’s continuation are not just idle chatter – they now have a concrete timeline.

“We are always cooking things up!” Kidman exclaimed, referring to herself and the executive producers behind the series. She confirmed that the prospect of a third season is not merely speculative but backed by a plan. “We’ve got a timeline for it now,” she added, marking a significant development for fans who have been eagerly anticipating the return of the beloved show.

After a period of reflection and allowing things to find their course, Kidman expressed confidence that “the time is now” to breathe life into the third season. The tragic loss of Jean-Marc Vallée, the original series director, on December 25, 2021, initially cast doubt on the show’s future. Kidman acknowledged the impact of Vallée’s absence, stating, “We are obviously all devastated at the loss of Jean-Marc Vallée.” However, she emphasized the determination of the cast, particularly mentioning Reese Witherspoon, to move forward despite the challenges.

“Big Little Lies,” renowned for its intricate portrayal of a group of women and their families entangled in a murder investigation, earned eight Emmys over its first two seasons. The ensemble cast includes Kidman, Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Zoë Kravitz, Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Alexander Skarsgård, Kathryn Newton, Meryl Streep, among others.

While Kidman tantalizes fans with the prospect of more “Big Little Lies,” she is currently gearing up for the debut of her new Prime Video series, “Expats.” Based on Janice Y. K. Lee’s novel, the show delves into the lives of expatriates in Hong Kong. Kidman expressed enthusiasm about the international dimensions of her role, describing it as a unique and layered experience. With the series spanning six hours and featuring six languages, Kidman conveyed her pride in the project, highlighting its complexity and the opportunity to introduce a diverse set of actors to a global audience.
