Despite being initially announced as a limited series, Big Little Lies is in the initial stages of a potential second season.

In a new interview with the Sydney Morning HeraldBig Little Lies novelist Liane Moriarty revealed that producers have expressed a keen interest in working with her on another installment that details the strange lives of the Monterey, Calif. elite. Though, she mentioned that she's not interested in writing a BLL sequel, but instead working on writing a new screenplay.

"I have started to think about ways this could continue," she said. "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."

Moriarty adds the superstar cast—that includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Alexander Skarsgard, Adam Scott, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz—would all be on board. She said, "They all loved working together but I think the thing is the story has to be right. So if is right, and if [screenwriter] David E. Kelley is happy to get the screenplay right, then I think that'll do it." 

Witherspoon and Dern have previously said they're both down for a second season so we'll have to see what the future holds for Madeline Martha Mackenzie and the gang. 

Speaking of second seasons, next up watch Ryan Hurst preview the latest installment of his WGN show Outsiders:
