Reese Witherspoon has shared her idea for a possible Big Little Lies Christmas special after the making of the third season was shut down by Zoë Kravitz earlier this year.
Big Little Lies ended with two seasons on HBO in 2019. Three years after the show concluded, will the Monterey Five reunite again?
Reese Witherspoon Drops Big Little Lies Christmas Special Idea
Fans still hope Big Little Lies Season 3 is happening, though the odds seem to be not in their favor.
However, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Witherspoon believes a Christmas special of the show will be “really fun.”
She pitched that this single episode would feature the reunion of the original cast, singing holiday songs at a karaoke bar, complete with a more comedic concept, though there might be another murder.
"I think it’d be really fun to do like a Big Little Lies comedy Christmas [special],” she said. “
“Just like a one-off episode, me and Laura Dern, let’s just go there, and then Nicole and Zoë and Shailene, we’ll go to a karaoke bar and get smashed and sing Christmas songs,” she continued. “I’m not gonna say we haven’t done that, because I think that was my last year’s Christmas party. [Laughs]"
Zoë Kravitz Shuts Down Big Little Lies Season 3 Hopes
In an interview with GQ Magazine, via Variety, Kravitz revealed she didn’t think a third season would happen after the first season director Jean-Marc Vallée’s untimely death.
“We talked about doing a Season 3 a lot,” the 34-year-old star stated.
“Unfortunately, Jean-Marc Vallée, our incredible director, passed away this last year. It’s heartbreaking,” she explained. “I can’t imagine going on without him. He really was the visionary for that show. Unfortunately, it’s done.”
Vallée was known for his vast filmography, including Dallas Buyers Club and Wild. He died in December 2021 due to a heart attack. At the time, he was in his cabin outside Quebec City, Canada. He was 58 years old.
He directed all seven episodes of the show’s first season in 2017 and remained involved in the creative direction of the second season after Andrea Arnold took over the director’s seat.
