So, uh, not to break anybody's heart on this lovely Monday morning, but Laura Dern may have just confirmed that a Big Little Lies season three truly might not be happening after all. Last night, after the season two finale, Reese Witherspoon posted a behind-the-scenes photo of her on-screen family during the (very unexpected) scene where Madeline and Ed renewed their vows. She captioned the photo, "Madeline & Ed 💕Abigail & Chloe 💕#biglittlelies."

No big deal, right? Well, then Laura Dern wrote a sweet comment on the post, which may or may not have revealed the fate of BLL. "Thank you, Reese, for giving us such deep hope in pure love with this story and this ending."

This ending. She could have just said this story. She could also, you know, just be trolling us all, but the comment seems too pure that even Renata would be appalled at the level of trolling taking place.

All I have to say is I will not not witness Gordon rot in jail while Amabella saves the world from climate change. Please, for the love of god, HBO, give us a season three.
