Reese Witherspoon Wants Jennifer Lopez to Join ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 3

Here's what we know

While there might not yet be a script or storyline set, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern are already preparing the cast for Big Little Lies season three. The BBL and Wild co-stars took to Instagram Live on Monday evening to chat about what the future might hold for Madeline Mackenzie and Renata Klein, while offering up some names for people they’d love to see included in the Monterey drama, including Jennifer Lopez and Ice Cube.

As Witherspoon said, “I mean, I’m always hoping for J.Lo to show up, just ’cause I really enjoy some J.Lo.” Which, same. As for her suggestion to cast Ice Cube, Dern was immediately on board. “Hello? Obviously. There’s no question and such a good actor.”

Witherspoon and Dern did admit they don’t currently have much mapped out for the third season, nor are they positive that there will even be another season (something Casey Bloys, president of programming at HBO seemed to confirm back in July 2019). “We want to do it, we’re just kind of waiting,” said Witherspoon. “We’re trying, guys. We’re trying to come up with the right story—and how do we end after that cliffhanger?”

Fingers crossed.
