Big Little Lies is one of many HBO series that brings us a mystery and suspenseful storyline told through several seasons and that will captivate both friends and strangers. It is no surprise to anyone that HBO brings us series of enormous narrative cutting, with great actors and actresses on their campus and a pampering for direction and plot that we cannot find on other platforms.

While it is true that in this sense HBO has been much longer than its competitors in the television and entertainment sector itself, recently we have seen how Amazon and Netflix have been able to hold it in terms of quantity and quality. Of course, many of the most legendary series of recent years are still on HBO. So, if you've seen Big Little Lies, the series starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley, we offer you the best alternatives to Big Little Lies.
