Just ahead of Game of Thrones season 8 premiere, HBO debuted another major teaser trailer, offering a first look at Big Little Lies season 2.
The Monterey Five – Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Jane (Shailene Woodley), Renata (Laura Dern) and Bonnie (Zoë 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 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.
In the teaser, Jane (Woodley) realizes the group are being referred to as the “Monterey Five” — “like we all have scarlet letters on our backs.”
“My son is dead,” Streep’s Mary Louise Wright says in a voiceover. “I want to know what happened that night. I’m very tempted to ask you but I, I don’t think I would get the truth, would I?”
In 2017, the show was nominated for an impressive 16 Emmys, winning eight, including the award for outstanding limited series.
Check out the Big Little Lies season 2 trailer in the player below and look for the series to return on Sunday, June 9, 9 PM ET, exclusively on HBO.
