Fans have been eagerly anticipating the second season of HBO’s “Big Little Lies”, and the pay-cable giant had some big news to share on Sunday, unveiling the new season’s first teaser trailer and the premiere date.
The acclaimed series was originally intended to be a standalone limited series, but was so successful that it was something of a no-brainer to continue the story of a group of upscale women in Monterey, California, who share a deadly secret.
“The second season of this subversive, darkly comedic drama will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode… the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom,” reads the HBO synopsis for the new season.
“The Monterey Five — Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Jane (Shailene Woodley), Renata (Laura Dern) and Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) — are joined by Celeste’s visiting mother-in-law, Mary Louise (Meryl Streep), and their husbands, Ed (Adam Scott), Nathan (James Tupper) and Gordon (Jeffrey Nordling), in this seven-episode season,” the synopsis continues.
Stars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon each shared the teaser on Instagram.
“The #MontereyFive are BACK!!! Who’s ready for #BigLittleLies Season 2?! Coming June 9th on @HBO,” wrote Witherspoon.
“Secrets always surface…️ #BigLittleLies Season 2. June 9th. 🖤,” wrote Kidman.
HBO also released some photos from the upcoming season:
