Meryl Streep to Star in 'Big Little Lies' Season 2!

Meryl Streep has just joined the all-star cast of Big Little Lies season 2!

The legendary actress will play the role of Mary Louise Wright, who is the mother of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgard) and mother in law of Celeste (Nicole Kidman). Spoiler alert!! Alexander‘s character died at the end of season one, but there’s a rumor he will be returning as well.

THR reports that Meryl’s character is “concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry’s death. She arrives in Monterey searching for answers.”

So far, only Reese Witherspoon and Nicole are set to reprise their roles for season two. Zoe Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, and Laura Dern also starred in season one.

    Big Little Lies was incredibly overrated.

    They destroyed a very good book..

    NOOOO! I enjoyed this show and the book! Now they’re just going to use the success of season 1 (which was only good because of the book!) to sell us junk.

    how appropriate…she knows a lot about big (non-little) lies. If you didn’t know Streep, then why would *someone* warn their daughters starting out in acting about Weinstein a decade BEFORE this expose. A decade of victims…but as long as they arent your daughters, apparently a woman doesnt give a damn. Her and Oprah are such liars. I hate Trump but Oprah would be just as stupid/bad/inept. Just because you are famous does NOT make you qualified for public office/service. Her ego makes her think she’s more than she is.

    Yes! Streep in (almost) anything: yes! I loved the book. The series changed a few things, but I liked it just as much. I’m looking forward to Season 2, although I agree that successful series often change to conform to the criteria that made them a success, and they often screw them up in the process.

    Should have gotten Glenn Close.
    She is more talented and glamorous. And not overhyped, overrated and imbecilic like this laundry bag full of unwashed clothes.
    This haggard bitch is everywhere all the time. Enough.

  • cafeast

    It was about rape and hating white men.
    What is not to like about it considering this is what social liberalism and feminism are all about in 2018?

  • cafeast

    Meryl slept her way through the 70s and 80s. Every casting couch and/or dressing room was her mattress. This bitch knew all about the pig, like the rest of them, and did nothing about it b/c he was buying all of them their oscars. Simple as that.

    What else does that over grown banana have to do?
