It turns out Big Little Lies' season two almost ended a VERY different way

Big Little Lies' second season almost ended an entirely different way - at least, according to one of the series' stars.

Poorna Jagannathan, who played Celeste's lawyer in the second season of the HBO series, said that what aired during the season finale wasn't the same as what was in her original script.


Speaking on Vanity Fair's Still Watching podcast, she said:

“I read the script and I watched yesterday’s episode and I was like, ‘Oh my god there might be a season three!’

"It’s not the script I got!"

The actress went on to explain that the script she had gotten would have seen fans say a final farewell to one of the Monetary Five.

Yes, that's right: either Madeline Martha Mackenzie, Celeste Wright, Jane Chapman, Renata Klein, or Bonnie Carlson was meant to be killed off.

She continued:

"One character doesn’t even make it. One character dies. It’s a different script.

"This version left the door open on something I thought was definitely closed."


Jagannathan didn't specify which one of the characters was saved in the finale that aired - however, many people have begun to guess that it was meant to be Bonnie.

Big Little Lies has not been renewed for a second three - but we're very excited that the change means the Monetary Five will be able to return if it does.

It comes as Nicole Kidman recently admitted she would "love" to continue working on Big Little Lies - under one condition.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, she said:


“I think we would love to do a season three because there is certainly ideas. But we would not do it without all of the same people involved … even the kids.”
