Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

HBO’s “Big Little Lies” concluded with 1.9 million total viewers, soaring 34 percent from the prior week.

That sum makes Sunday the third week in a row that the whodunit (and who’s dead?) thriller has set a new series high.

With some reruns tabulated, the “Big Little Lies” finale rose to 2.5 million overall audience members.

The Jean-Marc Vallee series stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley and follows the mothers of first graders in Monterey, Calif. It is based on Liane Moriarty’s book of the same name.

The penultimate episode had hauled in 1.4 million viewers, meaning half-a-million more viewers were glued to HBO last night at 9 p.m.
