You would have to literally give this A+ list dual threat actress who is much more known for movies, $100M to get her to work on another season of the show she said she was done with after one season.
To make matters worse for the second season, they hired even more A list people she doesn’t like.

Nicole Kidman Says There’s Currently ‘No Plan’ for a Big Little Lies Season 3
Season 2 of Big Little Lies is on its way, but it seems that a third season may not be happening — at least for now.
On Friday, HBO executives announced at the Television Critics Association tour that Big Little Lies will return for its second season this June. For anything beyond that, however, the show’s writer David E. Kelley and cast members said there was currently “no plan” in the works.
“[There’s] no such plan now,” Kelley revealed. “We like our closure at season 2, that will probably be it.”
That prompted stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon to point out that a similar conversation happened after season 1 wrapped.
“That’s what you said last time!” Kidman, 51, said, as Witherspoon, 42, added in agreement, “Yeah, you sat there and said the same thing!”
However, after their faux outrage, Kidman was quick to point that a season 3 was not in the works.
“There’s no plan for it. This was a long shoot for us, an enormous amount of work, we’re amazed we can be here,” the Australian actress clarified.
The second season was never supposed to happen, as the first covered Moriarty’s entire book, but Kelley changed his mind after season 1’s success and once Meryl Streep agreed to join the cast for season 2. – Source
