#Nicole Kidman would like another season of "#Big Little Lies" on one condition. The #HBO miniseries, which aired for seven episodes from February to April, was well-received but the network has not confirmed a renewal.

Speaking exclusively with Variety, Nicole Kidman said she would be on board for a "Big Little Lies" Season 2 "if the storyline could be powerful and compelling." This show was her first foray into television and she admitted witnessing the "power of television. The power of that particular story and how it connected."

Power of television

Nicole Kidman played an abused wife in "Big Little Lies" and as Celeste, she had viewers reaching out to her to express how much her character's story mattered.

To the world outside, Celeste seemed like the perfect wife and mom with the perfect husband, Perry, who was played by Alexander Skarsgard. But in truth, she was in an abusive relationship, which also affected her 8-year-old twin boys.

In the beginning of the show, Kidman's character protected her husband. The actress realized the complex reality women in this kind of situation face every day. 'Big Little Lies' ended with Celeste's husband's death, so her character's next steps as a survivor would be something to look forward to. Thus, if HBO were to give the show a second season, Nicole Kidman wants Celeste's story to continue touching the women viewers.

Developing the series

"Big Little Lies" was based on the book written by Liane Moriarty, who also worked on the series. The show finished the same way as the booked, which David E.

Kelley adapted for television. Moriarty is said to be thinking of ideas on where Season 2 could go in case she gets that call from HBO.

Aside from starring in the show, Nicole Kidman also served as co-producer along with Reese Witherspoon, who played Celeste's best friend Madeline. The show also starred Shailene Woodley as newcomer Jane.

There are, however, people saying "Big Little Lies" doesn't necessarily need a second season. Director Jean-Marc Vallée told Vanity Fair that the story achieved closure when it ended in April. "We won’t give you a Season 2 because it’s so good like this. Why spoil it?" he said. Vallée added that from what he knows, this was a one-time deal.

Observers note that if and when HBO confirms a renewal, "Big Little Lies" Season 2 won't likely air until 2019. As it is, Kidman, Witherspoon, and Woodley also have movie commitments to complete.
