Big Little Lies, fans: set your calendars for June 10. The Emmy-award winning HBO series is back, and the second season’s trailer has just been released. The teaser shows a first glimpse at the “Monterey five,” as they are now being called, dealing with the aftermath of last season’s cliffhanger ending. Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, and Laura Dern are all reprising their roles, navigating their characters’ intertwined lives in their hometown of Monterey, California, as they try to cover up the – spoiler alert – death of Alexander Skarsgard’s character, Perry. “It’s going to get us, it’s going to get us all. The lying,” says Kravitz in the trailer.
The new clip also shows fans a first look at Meryl Streep’s character in the series, where she plays Perry’s mother, who is suspicious of the group. “My son is dead. I want to know what happened that night,” she says in the clip, talking to Witherspoon. “I’m very tempted to ask you, but I don’t think I would get the truth, would I?” It’s the first in-character preview we’ve seen since the cast began sharing some behind-the-scenes photos last year during filming. And it shows major promise, unsurprisingly.
As for what this new season will bring? Drama and chaos, surely – but the exact plot is still hush-hush. However, Witherspoon did say the following when announcing the second series in 2017: “It gives us the opportunity to delve deeper into the lives of these intriguing and intricate Monterey families and bring more of their stories back to the audience who embraced and championed them.” Watch the trailer in full below:
Big Little Lies will air in the US on June 9 and June 10 in the UK on HBO.
