Bad news for fans of HBO's hit show, Big Little Lies. We could end up saying goodbye to the show that stars literally all our favorite actresses sooner than we think. Apparently, Big Little Lies may not get a third season ... and of course, fans are dying for more.

  • Recently, HBO President Casey Bloys said that a third season of BLL is unrealistic.

    Talking to TVLine, Casey said that while he'd love to have the cast return for more, he's not sure it's possible with their busy schedules. After all, the cast is made up entirely of Hollywood A-Listers -- like Meryl Streep and Reese Witherspoon

    "I love this group of people -- I would do anything with them," he said. "But the reality is, they are some of the busiest actresses working in Hollywood. We have deals with some of them -- Nicole [Kidman] is doing her next show with us. I just think it's not realistic. Look, if they all came to me and said, 'We worked out all of our schedules!' -- then sure. But I just don't think it's realistic."

  • He doesn't seem to think fans will be left hanging, though.

    "Season 2 was a chance for everyone involved to end in a way that feels satisfying," he added.

    Being that there is only one more episode left this season, we certainly hope so. We'd watch this television show forever if we could, but if it ends in a way that makes the story feel complete, we might be okay with it going out while it's still on top.

  • But, unsurprisingly, fans aren't happy with this news.

    People are already commenting how bummed they are that this could be the end. It makes sense. Big Little Lies has a huge fan base, thanks to the massive amounts of star power in this cast. Of course fans are going to be disappointed if it ends. We know we will be!

  • Fortunately, nothing's set in stone just yet, so we're keeping our fingers crossed.

    You never know -- they could end up surprising us. We never imagined we'd get more than one season, but then, the season two announcement came through. The same thing could end up happening again this time. 

    Or maybe not. Just let us hold on to our optimism!

  • And if all else fails, at least we can hold onto this moment forever:


    Time to gear up for what could possibly be the last episode of Big Little Lies ever. We're not ready, but would we ever be?
