Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz bonded on the set of HBO’s Big Little Lies — so much so that the five actresses, like fans, are clamoring for a second season.

But if it does, Woodley likely won’t be watching.

“I haven’t had a TV since I moved out of my parents house at 18,” she told E! News in the pre-show on the red carpet at the 2017 Emmy Awards Sunday, where Big Little Lies had received 16 nominations.

“All my friends who watch TV, I always ask them when they have time to. When do they have time to?” she said. “I’m a reader. I always have a book.”

Her comments were quickly mocked on Twitter by viewers who didn’t understand why a television actress would show up to an awards show about TV to talk about how she doesn’t own one.

Earlier, Woodley told ET that her favorite beauty product was “Just happiness, man.”

Woodley was joined on the red carpet by her costars all said that while they didn’t have any specifics news about a possible season 2, they all said they’re game for another trip to Monterey, California.

“We want to do it,” Kidman, 50, told E! News in the pre-show. “We love these women. It’s just trying to move pieces.”

“The material has to be there,” Kravitz, 28, said — Woodley, 25, saying the cast would be there “100 percent.”

Witherspoon, 41, couldn’t help but laugh at it all. “It feels unfair that we got to do this,” she said. “We had the best time. We’re all really good friends. That you for wanting us back!”

Dern, 50, agreed. “It’s an incredible blessing that these ladies got together and wanted to make this. I’m beyond grateful. We know how rare it is for a tribe of woman being able to get together and make art and build a family.”

“The power of television is extraordinary,” Kidman added. “Being in people’s lives and having them connect to these stories… It’s sort of flooded all of us. We didn’t think it would stretch this far.”

In just seven episodes, Big Little Lies captivated viewers by intertwining a dark murder mystery plot with poignant commentary on the complexities of family life.

Though the cast and fans are all excited about a potential new season, Witherspoon said Wednesday during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that they’re still in the ideas stage.

“I don’t have any really to say,” she said. “We’re talking about it. We’re only going to do it if we really feel it’s as good as the first season. We’re thinking about ideas.”

“The issue is there was only one book written,” host Andy Cohen said.

“Yeah, and it ended!” responded Witherspoon. “That’s what it was. So it would have to just sort of pick up on, I guess, did we get away with it?”
