HBO has a vast bottom line to pump millions into Game of Thrones, but even they have limits. Company heads admit that pricey purchases like a Game of Thrones spinoff or even Big Little Lies Season 2 have burned serious holes in their pockets.
Lest you think the Big Little Lies Season 2 casting of Meryl Streep might eat into the budget, HBO won’t skimp on our second trip to Monterey. The whole of Season 1’s expansive cast has formally signed on for the Emmy-winner’s 2019 return, including our beloved wine-sloshed Laura Dern.
The writing was already on those fabulous Monterey walls, but Big Little Lies is officially getting bigger. HBO confirms a second season of its Emmy-winning drama in the works with the original cast, and Andrea Arnold taking over the director’s chair.
You’d be hard-pressed to top the one-off, wine-soaked perfection of Big Little Lies, but HBO can’t help flying a little closer to that Monterey sun. A new report suggest Season 2 is officially a go, with production earmarked for 2018.
