‘Big Little Lies’ Returns This Summer For A Second Season | TV Trailer
HBO has just released the awaited trailer for season 2 of its Emmy-award winning TV drama, Big Little Lies. The mini-series is an adaptation of the best-selling book by Liane Moriarty, who originally sets the story in Australia.
The teaser shows a first glimpse at the “Monterey Five” as they are now being called, dealing with the aftermath of last season’s cliffhanger ending, that saw the mysterious murder of Perry Wright in the small town of Monterey. Now in the second season the mother of the murdered man, Mary Louise Wright comes back to town to investigate.
Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley and Laura Dern all reassume their roles, navigating their characters’ intertwined lives in their hometown of Monterey, California as they try to cover up the death of Alexander Skarsgard’s character, Perry. But the big news of this season is the incredible cast addition by Oscar winner Meryl Streep. She’ll play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright.
“My son is dead. I want to know what happened that night,” she says in the clip, talking to Witherspoon.“I’m very tempted to ask you, but I don’t think I would get the truth, would I?” It’s the first in-character preview we’ve seen since the cast began sharing some behind-the-scenes photos last year during filming.
HBO says the second season will “continue to explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting.” And in what sounds like a promise: “things could get messy.”
If you haven’t seen the incredible series yet, sorry for the spoilers, but stop reading and run to watch it. In case you’re a big fan, Big Little Lies will air in the US on June 9 and June 10 in the UK on HBO. Check out the season 2 trailer below.
