Just before “Game of Thrones: Season 8” debuts on the network, HBO confirmed the premiere date for “Big Little Lies: Season 2.” The popular series will return with all-new episodes on June 9th, so fans will want to keep that HBO subscription following the end of “Game of Thrones.” There’s a new teaser trailer to watch, and things look as dark and suspicious as ever.
HBO teased the new season on social media, “The second season of this subversive, darkly comedic drama will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and the vicious ferocity of sound parenting.” The network added, “Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.”
The returning characters include Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Jane (Shailene Woodley), Renata (Laura Dern) and Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz). They will be joined by Celeste’s visiting mother-in-law, Mary Louise (Meryl Streep), and their husbands, Ed (Adam Scott), Nathan (James Tupper) and Gordon (Jeffrey Nordling).
HBO ordered seven-episodes for the sophomore season of “Big Little Lies,” and fans only have a few more months of waiting. On the bright side, HBO did release the season two trailer to get everyone excited for the new season.
“Big Little Lies” was created by David E. Kelley, the adaptation is based on the novel by Liane Moriarty. Andrea Arnold directs, with Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, David E. Kelley, Andrea Arnold, Jean-Marc Vallée, Bruna Papandrea, Per Saari, Gregg Fienberg, Nathan Ross, and Liane Moriarty serving as executive producers on the project.
The first season was an amazing success for the network, and at the Golden Globes. “Big Little Lies” won Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television (Nicole Kidman); Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television; Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Alexander Skarsgård); and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television (Laura Dern).
