PSA: ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2 just got the biggest endorsement yet

We thought Big Little Lies already had the starriest, most Oscar-nominated cast around, but it looks like Season 2 will trump them all. According to The Hollywood Reporter, everyone's favourite (except Donald Trump) Oscar-nominee Meryl Streep just joined the cast of Big Little Lies Season 2! Yep, you heard us: Meryl Streep. We hope this means more Golden Globe Awards noms for 2019...

If you've yet to see the award-winning HBO drama, stop reading now before we spoil anything. Still with us? Streep will play new character Mary Louise Wright, mother to the late Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgard) and mother-in-law to Celeste (Nicole Kidman). Described as a woman "concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry's death", Mary Louise "arrives in Monterey searching for answers". No doubt the suspicious death of her son will elicit some deliciously tense moments between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law - and frankly, we can't wait to see Nicole and Meryl face off on screen, can you?

The casting coup follows a string of successes for HBO, which has scooped up accolades during awards season and recently earned stars and executive producers Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon a sweet $1 million dollar per episode , thanks to an Apple deal inked by Witherspoon (for a separate series). While it may seem like a risky move bringing back a limited series with no new book material to reference, in the hands of HBO, Reese, Nicole, Meryl and writer David E. Kelley, we're pretty confident people will be tuning in again.

And hey, Game of Thrones has run out book material but that hasn't stopped them.
