A magnificent award-winning cast of powerful ladies made “Big Little Lies” an instant success amongst the fans. When the series was first released in February 2017, fans knew the true potential of the storyline. The different facets of the individual life stories and how this stitch all the main cast in one single plot, “Big Little Lies” is just what the fans needed in the industry full of mainstream stories.
The second season of the show was out in 2019 and it was another major success. Fans were hoping to get the next chapter of the show. But three years have passed, and there is still no news about “Big Little Lies” season 3. There are a lot of unanswered questions that are to be discussed further and if “Big Little Lies” season 3 doesn’t release, all of these queries will remain unsolved.
So Shameless is canceled bc Fiona is gone, Veep one episode, Game of Thrones 3 eps left. I'll only have Big Little Lies to anticipate…but even that's the finale season. I'll have nothing to watch. oh well

Reese Witherspoon, Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, and Nicole Kidman have beautifully conveyed their stories to the audience. It is an empowering show giving identity to all the individual characters in their own stories.
The late Jean-Marc Valleé was the director and executive producer of the show, however, the show was still planned to go on after his death. But even today, there has been no positive confirmation regarding the “Big Little Lies” season 3 release date. So, what is the current status of the project?
Did “Big Little Lies” Season 3 Get Canceled?
A matter of relief, “Big Little Lies” season 3 has not been officially canceled either by the showrunners or the network. The HBO show has high popularity and won 16 Primetime Emmy Award nominations and won as many as 8 awards. So, canceling it won’t be justified at all. Now one thing that you must note is “Big Little Lies” is a limited series.
Thus, the chances of it not continuing for an extended period are justifiable. Well, that being said, in 2019, Casey Bloys, the Programming President of HBO even hinted about the third season. He said, “This group is an extraordinary group of actors and producers, writers and directors. So, if they all came to me and said, ‘We have the greatest take, listen to this,’ I would certainly be open to it. But who knows? It just doesn’t feel like it. But I’m certainly open to it”.
Such a big statement coming from the President himself surely had a lot of weight to it. On the other hand, contrasting to that, IndieWire commented in 2020 that the story has nowhere to go after the conclusion of season 2. But then again, Nicole Kidman revealed that the cast has been approached yet again and the story is currently under development.
The actress who plays one of the leads in the show said, “It’s more the kernel of ideas that just need to be solidified. We all just want to work together again. I texted Zoë [Kravitz] and Laura [Dern], and they’re in. David E. Kelly and Liane [Moriarty] have a really good idea for it. Watch this space!”
The news is changing every minute and the decision is again under review since HBO Max is currently changing its deal with Warner Bros Discovery. And as we know, even the best-rated shows are getting canceled after this. Thus, the fate of “Big Little Lies” Season 3 remains undecided.
Catwoman herself had something to say regarding the renewal status of “Big Little Lies” Season 3. Zoë was a major part of the show and even she wanted to have “Big Little Lies” Season 3. But in her recent GQ interview, she stated, “I don’t think it is. We talked about doing Season 3 a lot. Unfortunately, Jean-Marc Vallée, our incredible director, passed away this last year. It’s heartbreaking. I can’t imagine going on without him. He was the visionary for that show. Unfortunately, it’s done”.

The answer of the actress is leading it in a different direction. So, doubt remains on the renewal status of “Big Little Lies” Season 3.
If “Big Little Lies” Season 3 is to be released, then over 3 million viewers will be happy about the renewal decision. Yes, that’s the number of fans who initially watched the show. The number may have gone high up on today’s date. We cannot vouch for the potential release date, but let’s hope there is some positive news.
