No specific date has been announced, but HBO revealed Big Little Lies will return sometime in June. Start planning those viewing parties now. The network did, however, share the Season 2 synopsis.
“On the surface, in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, everything seems the same. The mothers continue to dote, the husbands support, the children remain adorable and the houses are just as beautiful. But the night of the school fundraiser changed all that, leaving the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” – Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie – bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.”
The new season explores 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…and the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.
Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz and Adam Scott are all set to reprise their roles, with American Horror Story veteran Denis O’Hare and the one and only Meryl Streep joining the show.
Kidman shared a few stills from the upcoming season on Instagram. Check out the slideshow below.
