All about Little Fires Everywhere

The talented cast includes Reese Witherspoon and Rosemarie DeWitt alongside Washington in a powerful performance.

Thanks to Hulu’s distribution efforts, you can now stream each stunning installment with ease.
Awards & Nominations Received by Little Fires Everywhere
Little Fires Everywhere has been praised and celebrated with numerous awards, including the NAACP Image Awards and Black Reel Television Award. This series was also nominated for some of the most prestigious accolades such as Primetime Emmy Awards, TCA Awards, Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, Directors Guild of America Awards, Art Directors Guild Awards, and GLAAD Media Awards to name a few.
Showrunner Says There Won’t Be a Season 2 of Little Fire Everywhere
Unlike The Stand miniseries, which aired in 2020 and concluded neatly with no need for further episodes, Little Fires Everywhere will not be renewed for a second season. Showrunner Liz Tigelaar affirmed that the story of Little Fires Everywhere has come to an end on its own terms. Tigelaar stated, “I feel like we’ve told the complete story…. But I don’t see an organic Season 2 that really honors how these characters would interact”. According to Tigelaar, episode 6 entitled “The Uncanny,” which details Mia and Elena’s pasts comes with the most potential for season 2. This single installment is enough to provide viewers with all of the background knowledge they need on our protagonists’ journeys into motherhood.
“The Uncanny” displays Mia’s journey through school life in 1981 New York City and the birth of her daughter, Pearl. Two years later Elena gave birth to Isabelle, a reference to Legally Blonde. The flashback episode was an excellent piece of television that would be perfect for a prequel spinoff series; however, this could also bring potential risks with the introduction of completely new material. Even though season 1 of Big Little Lies was based on Liane Moriarty’s novel, the second one wasn’t as enthusiastically received. To continue exploring Mia and Elena’s stories may come off as an attempt to please fans rather than serving a narrative purpose since there isn’t much left to tell about them.
Little Fires Everywhere Spin-off
When Vulture asked Liz Tigelaar, the showrunner of Little Fires Everywhere, if she was open to the idea of a spinoff in April, her response was enthusiastic: “I do think there are stories to tell. But that’s more of a spinoff than a second season. It’s hard to say goodbye, but there’s something about trying to extend it past its shelf life that I feel would dishonor what it was.”
