With just weeks away from having the ladies of Monterey back on our screen, it’s time for a Big Little Lies recap.
The second season of Big Little Lies, which is coming to HBO in June, will feature the great Meryl Streep.
Streep portrays grieving mother of Perry (Alexander Skarsgård), who died at the end of season one. Perry’s death was caused by Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz), when she saw him getting aggressive with his wife Celeste (Nicole Kidman).
Now, Streep arrives in Monterey to get answers from a group of women she suspects know what went down that night.
“We left off with a lie, so it would have been disingenuous not to mine that lie for all its malignancy,” writer David E. Kelley told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s going to result in more skewed fractures and fissures in the friendships between the women, some of the marriages, and some of the individual psyches.”
The series’ leading ladies, Reese Witherspoon, Kidman, Laura Dern, Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley are all set to reprise their roles when the formerly-limited series returns.
According to the official logline, the forthcoming season “will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode… the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.”
Big Little Lies season two premieres June 9th.
