Alexander Skarsgård’s character in Big Little Lies might not be dead after all

Wait. What?

By Loren Howarth
During the season one finale of Big Little Lies, we saw Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) get pushed down a staircase by Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) where he met his demise. Or did he?
Although there were rumours Celeste's (Nicole Kidman) husband might make a return to the screen via flashbacks in season two, the actor who has received an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and a SAG Award for his chilling performance as an abusive husband, has dropped a huge teaser.
Speaking to People, Alexander said: "I don't even know if I'm really dead or not. I feel okay right now but we'll see."
Er, say what now?
TVLine reports that Alexander is expected to "return in some capacity." His return could be in flashbacks or perhaps his character is in a coma?
The actor would be keen to make a dramatic comeback, considering he described the role as "the greatest experience" of his career.
HBO, who produces the series, has declined to confirm any cast for next season besides Reese Witherspoon (Madeline) and Nicole Kidman (Celeste).

What we do know about season two is that it will have seven episodes, and will begin production in March, ahead of a 2019 premiere. Andrea Arnold will replace Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallee, who will stay on as an executive producer.
Backstage at this year's SAG Awards, Nicole revealed she had seen the new scripts, and said she was thrilled people wanted more of the show because "the stories are so rich and deep."
