The award-winning series "Big Little Lies", has announced that it will be back for a second season and can confirm that Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz have signed official contracts for the second season, joining the executive producers, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. This announcement came after the huge buzz that came when it was announced that Meryl Streep would be playing Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright, Celeste's deceased, abusive ex-husband. After Perry's death, a distraught Mary Wright begins a journey to search for answers to ease her pain while dealing with a depleted relationship with her daughter.
Kidman expressed her excitement when Streep agreed to work with them saying, "We didn't think we'd get her, it really is her standing up and going, 'I support you as women, and I believe in you', I think that's a big statement from her."
Reese Witherspoon said in an interview, "I’m thrilled to be bringing back this talented team of artists. It gives us the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of these intriguing and intricate Monterey families and bring more of their stories back to the audience who embraced and championed them.” In an attempt to not reveal too many spoilers, we will just say that season one wasn't necessarily the end of the road for certain characters despite the seemingly tragic and permanent ending.
The second season will be directed by Andrea Arnold and audiences can expect to see a few new characters entwined in the storyline along with Streep. The second season will pick up where the first left off, highlighting the malevolence in lies, the importance of friendship and the controversy around what constitutes good parenting. The new season promises a twisting plot made up of crumbling relationships, backstabbing and a healthy dose of emotional trauma for its audience.
