“I can tell you that all of us who are involved in it would never imagine a better time,” Dern said. “We love each other so much and would have the time of our life being back together, and we love our characters so much. I truly know what you know But I know that it is something that they are working diligently at dreaming up, and I sure hope it comes to fruition.”

Witherspoon and Kidman have confirmed that they are working on the series, an easy task since they live five minutes from each other.

The death of the show’s director, Jean-Marc Vallée, in Dec. 2021 seemed to signal a stopping point for the series. But the recent comments indicate that may not be the case.

HBO has declined to comment on a potential third season.
