Are even bigger little lies to come?

Liane Moriarty, the author of "Big Little Lies," is working on ideas for a second season of the acclaimed HBO drama based on her novel.

"I have started to think about ways this could continue," she told The Sydney Morning Herald. "The producers have asked me to see if I can come up with some ideas. I wouldn't write a new book but perhaps a new story and then we'll see what happens. I'm absolutely open to it because, once I started thinking, it was too much fun to see what I could do and to see these characters again. And there's definitely places you can go."

The TV show, which starred Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley, was intended as a limited series, and showrunner David E. Kelley and director Jean-Marc Vallée have said it was a "one-time deal."

But both Witherspoon and Kidman remain open to the possibility. HBO would likely be on board if the stars signed on for a second season.

Something Moriarty would want to include in a second season is Bonnie's (Zoe Kravitz) backstory from the book, which was not addressed in the first season. In the book, she had an abusive father growing up — which plays into her actions on the night of the school fundraiser.

"And also what happens next [for Celeste]," Moriarty added. "That's the question that's also a really interesting thing, when you've been through a relationship like that, how do you feel now? How would she feel? She's grieving. She's still grieving for the end of a terrible relationship and I think that would be a really interesting thing to explore. So there's a whole lot of different storylines."
