A season 2 marred by a controversy
After the sequel aired, the series was the center of some startling accusations that would explain why the Season 2 episodes might seem a little … weird to you. According to IndieWire, the Big Little Lies team, and in particular the director of season 1, Jean-Marc Vallée, have completely modified the cut originally planned by the director of season 2, Andrea Arnold. The site explained that the latter would not have been aware of this creative decision.
Something that HBO director of programming Casey Boys later denied. He explained that there had been a lot of ” bad information ” about it. “ The idea that creative control has been taken from a director is wrong, ” he told Entertainment Weekly, arguing that Jean-Marc Vallée had always been expected to have a look at the end result. ” We never promised Andrea that she would be free. We were clear and she understood that we didn't want one person to come and do it all again, ” he said.
