Big Little Lies Season 2 is on its way and fans are thrilled. Season one was a huge success and also brought together Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon as co-producers and stars. Created by David E. Kelley, the HBO series went on to win eight Emmy awards.
Fans rallied for a second season and the Internet went ecstatic when it was announced the show had been renewed. Now, fans are really showing their intense enthusiasm for the series as they’re selecting their favorite cast of characters.
As Zoe Kravitz appeared in Season 1 playing Bonnie Carlson, it appears the top fan pick to appear on the show are her parents Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet.
There will be four new characters in the second season. These include Michael Perkins who will be a second-grade teacher, a new friend for Jane who is a school employee, Bonnie’s parents (whom fans are hoping will be played by Zoe Kravitz’s real parents) Martin and Elizabeth Howard.
Bonnie became one of the most popular characters in Season 1 and her return has caused many fans to react with anticipation to see how her storyline will play out.

While it’s clear that many fans want Lisa Bonet to play Bonnie’s mother the verdict isn’t in yet on who should be cast as Bonnie’s father. While Lenny Kravitz is Zoe’s real father, Lisa Bonet recently married her longtime partner Jason Momoa. Some have argued that since he is Zoe’s step-father, he should be in the running as well.

Jason Momoa and Lenny Kravitz will have to fight it out for the role of the dad.

Alert fans were quick to point out that Nicole Kidman and Lenny Kravitz dated and suggested that might make things a bit awkward on set.
Kidman and Lenny on screen together would be cool or really awkward ?

Other fans suggested that actress Riley Keough (Elvis Presley’s granddaughter) be added to the cast.
