Buckle up, BLL lovers, because the series that shook both viewers and the TV industry to their cores is coming back for its second season and dropped its first star-studded, drama-packed promo. The Monterey Five are dealing with the aftermath of ~somebody’s~ murder by ~somebody~ and things are not looking good for our faves, especially with Meryl Streep on the case.
In Big Little Lies season two, Meryl joins the cast as Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgård), whose murder by Bonnie Carlson (Zoë Kravitz) was the big reveal last season. Mary Louise shows up in Monterey to comfort Perry’s wife Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and apparently interrogate her friends–Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Jane (Shailene Woodley) and Renata (Laura Dern)–about her son’s tragic death.
Boy oh boy, is Meryl Streeping it up in the promo for season two! While the cast is obviously fantastic (and has been from the beginning), the depth Meryl brings with exactly one tear-wipe, two contemplative looks and one line is downright unnerving. One confrontation like that and we would tell her everything she wanted to know plus our banking password and SIN. And that’s why the woman has three Oscar statues and earned 21 nominations.
Predictably, people are pretty darn pumped for Season Two.
