“Big Little Lies” Gets HBO Marathon Following Big Emmy Night


HBO is giving viewers a chance to binge their newly minted Emmy-winning miniseries Big Little Lies this Thursday, the premium cable network announced Monday.

All seven episodes of the Jean-Marc Vallee directed miniseries starring Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley will run on HBO2, starting at 8 p.m. ET.

The drama explored the lives of three women who live in suburban Northern California whose lives begin to spiral out of control to the point of murder. 

Sunday night, the drama won Best Limited Series, Best Actress (Kidman), Best Supporting Actress (Laura Dern), Best Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard) and Best Directing (Vallee). Coupled with what the show already picked up at the Arts Emmys the previous Sunday, it took home a total of eight Emmy awards this year.

Though it’s a miniseries and told the entire story of the Liane Moriarty novel on which it’s based, fans have been clamoring for a second season of Big Little Lies, and the cast, particularly Witherspoon and Kidman – who also executive produce the series – have been encouraging the talk as well.

“We would love to all work together again,” Kidman told reporters following a panel for her SundanceTV show Top of the Lake: China Girl at the Critics’ Association’s summer press tour earlier this year.  “There’s an abundance of ideas, so if we could wrestle them into a   form, then yes [there will be a second season]. But right now,  it’s very up in the air.”

On Sunday night, the Season 2 questions still persisted, but Kidman, Witherspoon and company remained firm in their vagueness about the possibility. Until a second season is inevitably given the greenlight, you can binge Big Little Lies this Thursday – or at any time, let’s face it, on HBO On Demand.
