The last scene in "You Get What You Need" finds the show’s five main characters playing with their kids on the beach. In one picturesque moment, the women stand aligned, bonded to protect Bonnie’s secret, and fortified by actual friendship. But then, we see the women from afar through binocular lens, presumably from the detective who isn’t buying the lies the women are telling the police. She sees them having a fun day in the sun. We see a Season 2 plot thread.
With the murder investigation still up in the air in the television series, there’s material for another season to explore if the women’s biggest lie would begin to unravel. And let's not forget that Ed (Adam Scott) never finds out that Madeline cheated on him, or how Chloe, Madeline's precocious daughter, grew to have such an ear for soul music. Really, we need Big Little Lies Season 2 if only to top Season 1's stellar soundtrack.
Luckily there's a committed player in the mix: Witherspoon, who spearheaded Big Little Lies by buying the rights and producing the TV adaptation.
"One of the main questions everyone keeps asking us is is there going to be a Season 2," Witherspoon told InStyle. "We've been talking with the writer, and you guys should Facebook Liane Moriarty and tell her how much you want to see Big Little Lies 2. That would be good. She's thinking about ideas, and so we would love to hear ideas."
