Big Little Lies author is working on potential storylines for season 2

If you were as captivated by Big Little Lies as we were, then you've obviously been holding out hope for the launch of a second season, right?

And if emerging reports are anything to go by, it looks like we may be set for an instalment of new stories from the breathtaking town of Monterey on America's west coast.

Speaking at the 2017 Summer TCA Press Tour, HBO's programming president, Casey Bloys, alluded to the fact the author of the original book, Liane Moriarty, is currently working on potential storylines.

According to ET Online, Casey said he's excited by the possibilities which lie ahead, saying: "Liane taking her crack at it and I think that it's interesting."

While acknowledging the slightly atypical approach they have to this particular TV show, Casey said he's invigorated by the change in direction.

"I don't think there's been a time when we've gone to the writer of the novel, the source material, to come up with like, ‘Do you see ongoing stories?'"he continued.

"I'll be very curious to see what she comes up with that. Normally you go to a TV writer, and say, ‘What do you see?'"

"We have to see the material and if it's worth everybody's time," Casey continued. "If it is, then the conversation of directors will happen."

It sounds more and more likely with every passing conversation.
