Our prayers have been answered! Big Little Lies season 2 could be happening

And it's coming straight from the author's mouth!

If you're like us, you've already read every single one of Liane Moriarty's books.
Then as a chaser, you quickly devoured the TV adaptation of her genius offering, Big Little Lies.
So this latest update will be music to your fan girl ears.
Last week, we farewelled the ensemble cast of HBO's widely popular BLL in a dramatic finale.
While whispers of a season two did the rounds, the director of the show, Jean-Marc Vallee, quickly crushed all our dreams and poo-pooed the idea.
“To do a season two, I’m not for it. Big Little Lies two? Nah. We won’t give you a season two because it’s so good like this. Why spoil it," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
Enter Australian author and the show's brain child, Liane Moriarty, whose since admitted she's very open to the idea.
"I have started to think about ways this could continue," Liane revealed in a new interview with The Sydney Morning Herald.
"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."
"I'm absolutely open to it because, once I started thinking, it was too much fun to see what I could do and to see these characters again. And there's definitely places you can go."
In fact, she already knows what plot lines it would focus on.

Discussing how the show left out the book's exploration of Bonnie's troubled past, Liane believes it sets the second season up perfectly.
"The obvious thing is, first of all, I think we could bring in more of Bonnie's story from the book," the 50-year-old revealed to the publication.
"And also what happens next [for Nicole Kidman's character Celeste]. That's the question that's also a really interesting thing, when you've been through a relationship like that, how do you feel now?"
"How would she feel? She's grieving. She's still grieving for the end of a terrible relationship and I think that would be a really interesting thing to explore. So there's a whole lot of different storylines."

OK, we'll happily give our left kidney to get the ball rolling on this. But in all seriousness, what will it take to actually make it happen?
"I think everybody is pretty keen," the New York times best-seller explained.
"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."
Your move, David E. Kelley...
