HBO’s Big Little Lies doesn’t seem too satisfied with its eight Emmy Awards and four Golden Globes won last year. It’s going even bigger for season two. Meryl Streep is joining Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Zoe Kravitz in the TV miniseries drama, based on Liane Moriarty’s novel. The three-time Oscar-winning legend just received her 21st Oscar nomination for The Post, breaking her own record for most acting nominations. And now, she’s looking to expand her Emmy Awards collection since she took home the award for Angels in America in 2004 (she’s only gotten two Emmys in the past, no big deal).
In season two, Streep will play Mary Louise Wright, Perry Wright’s (Alexander Skarsgard) mother. According to the Hollywood Reporter, she visits Monterey to look for answers on her abusive son’s death, who was pushed down the stairs by Bonnie (Kravitz) in the first season.
Some of the casts already shared their excitement on social media (because who wouldn’t be thrilled to be working alongside Streep):
Yes, Monterey better watch out.
Big Little Lies is expected to premiere in 2019.
