BIG LITTLE LIES, starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz and Meryl Streep returns for its second season in June, exclusively on HBO. Adam Scott, James Tupper and Jeffrey Nordling co-star.
On the surface, in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, everything seems the same. The mothers continue to dote, the husbands support, the children remain adorable and the houses are just as beautiful. But the night of the school fundraiser changed all that, leaving the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” – Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie – bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.
Created by David E. Kelley, teleplays by David E. Kelley and story by Kelley and Liane Moriarty, and based on the novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Liane Moriarty, BIG LITTLE LIES returns for its seven-episode second season in June, exclusively on HBO. The new season explores the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…and the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.
With all seven episodes directed and executive produced by Andrea Arnold (Red Road, Fish Tank, Wuthering Heights, American Honey; Oscar® winner for Wasp), BIG LITTLE LIES features teleplays by David E. Kelley (Goliath, Mr. Mercedes; 11-time Emmy® winner for Picket Fences, LA Law, The Practice, Ally McBeal and Big Little Lies).
The show will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.
