Still, executive producer/director Craig Zobel revealed in an interview that he’s torn because he loves the character so much.

‘(Mare Sheehan) is a great character, so I’d love to see (a second season). I also like it as a miniseries,” Zobel said.

The network’s hit drama Big Little Lies, based on Lianne Moriarty’s novel of the same name, was a hit with critics and audiences alike, earning Emmy Awards for Outstanding Limited Series and a directorial award for Jean-Marc Vallee.
