According to Zoe Kravitz, the Showtime series Big Little Lies will not be renewed for a third season.
Following the passing of the show’s director and executive producer Jean-Marc Vallée in December 2021, the actress, who is 33 years old, spoke up regarding the prospects for the HBO series.
In a video interview with GQ, Kravitz said that the cast and crew often discussed producing a third season of the show. “Unfortunately, our wonderful director, Jean-Marc Vallée, died away this past year. It’s really upsetting to think about.”
She went on to say, “It’s impossible for me to picture life without him. He was the show’s creator in every sense of the word. It’s too late now, unfortunately.”
Big Little Lies actor Laura Dern, who co-stars with Kravitz on the program, has previously stoked fans’ hopes that the series will be renewed for a second season.
In the previous month, she gave an interview to Entertainment Tonight in which she said, “I mean, we would all want nothing more, we’re like family, just extremely blessed.” “My recommendation is that we not give up hope. Let’s keep inquiring about it since it might end up being real.”
Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley are also a part of the cast of this program, which chronicles the dangerous drama that unfolds among a group of mothers living in Monterey, California. David E. Kelley is the author of this adaptation, which was inspired by Liane Moriarty’s book from 2014.
It was already verified by PEOPLE that Vallée passed away in December 2021 after a heart attack in his cottage located outside of Quebec City, Canada. He was 58.
“Jean-Marc was the embodiment of originality, honesty, and taking risks in one’s endeavors. He was a genuine artist as well as a kind and kind human being “Nathan Ross, who is Vallée’s producing partner, issued a statement at the time of the incident. “Everyone who collaborated with him had no choice but to recognize the gifts of creativity and foresight he had. He was not just a friend but also a collaborator in artistic endeavors and an elder brother to me.”
He continued by saying, “The maestro will be sadly missed, but it comforts me to know that his lovely style and meaningful work that he shared with the world will carry on.”

After learning of his passing, the cast of Big Little Lies took to social media to share their memories of the filmmaker.
“My whole being is in shambles. My pal. I adore you, “It was written by Witherspoon.
Dern said that, “Beautiful Jean-Marc Vallee. One of the greatest and most genuine visionaries and artists in the history of the planet has passed away. And with that, we said goodbye to a dear friend. Our hearts have been shattered.”
Kidman also paid homage to the actress on her Instagram account, saying, “It is difficult to fathom that someone as alive, active, and present as Jean-Marc will no longer be around. I’m broken to the core. He was the axis around which my imaginative world revolved, and the importance he had for me is difficult to emphasize.”
