HBO has released the first trailer for Big Little Lies season 2, the highly-anticipated second chapter of the drama adaptation from producer David E. Kelley. The second season sees the return of Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, and Zoe Kravitz. Also, Meryl Streep is here this time and boy does she have her well-acted suspicions!
*Spoilers* if you’re not caught up, but season 1 came to close with Kravitz’s Bonnie Carlson pushing Alexander Skarsgard‘s Perry Wright down a flight of steps to his death. The season 2 trailer sees the “Monterey Five” dealing with the aftermath, most notably telling the police Perry fell down the steps on his own. Streep is joining the cast as Perry’s father, Mary Louise Wright.
“My son is dead,” Streep says in the trailer, eyeing down Witherspoon’s Madeline Martha Mackenzie. “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?”
Crystal Fox (The Haves and Have Nots) and Martin Donovan (Weeds) also join the cast as Bonnie’s parents.American Honey helmer Andrea Arnold will direct all seven episodes, taking over duties from last season’s director Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club).
Check out the trailer below. Big Little Lies returns for season 2 on HBO on Sunday, June 9.
