"Concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son death, Mary Louise arrives in Monterey searching for answers", revealed HBO.
The Hollywood Reporter has announced that 3-time Oscar victor Meryl Streep will make her triumphant return to television in the 2nd season of the critically-acclaimed series Big Little Lies.
Zoe Kravitz, who pocketed $470,000 for the first season, will now be paid $3.7 million for her role as hippy mother Bonnie Carlson.
Season one of Big Little Lies was based on an acclaimed bestselling novel by Lianne Moriarty.
The biggest star in Hollywood is headed to Big Little Lies! Given that Streep has been nominated for an Oscar a record 21 times - including for her current role in The Post - she'll be a frontrunner before her performance is even seen.
Streep will play the mother-in-law of Nicole Kidman's character, Celeste Wright.
Skarsgard is also expected to appear in season two, despite having been killed off at the end of season one. HBO says the series will continue to explore "malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting" - simply put: drama abounds! She'll be directing from scripts written by the returning David E. Kelley, who, according to THR, has already completed work on all seven scripts.
Both Kidman and Witherspoon will again executive produce in addition to starring, and Skarsgård is rumoured to return in some capacity.
EW also has a little more information about the plot of Season 2.
