Big Little Lies Sets Season 2 Premiere at HBO — The Ladies Plot in New Photos

Big LIttle Lies Season 2 Premiere Date

Time to book a return trip to Monterey: Season 2 of the Emmy-winning drama Big Little Lies will debut in June on HBO, the network announced Friday.

It’s worth noting that Big Little Lies‘ June return will make the show ineligible for 2019 Emmy consideration. Instead, Season 2 will be bumped to the 2020 race.

HBO on Friday also released four new photos from Season 2 — one of which you can see above, which shows Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie following the “unfortunate” death of Celeste’s abusive husband Perry in the Season 1 finale.

Season 2 also brings the arrival of Meryl Streep, who joins the cast as Mary Louise Wright, the mother of the deceased Perry. (We’re guessing she has some tough questions for Celeste.) Season 1 stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz and Adam Scott are all set to reprise their roles, with American Horror Story veteran Denis O’Hare joining the ensemble as a new character named Ira Farber.
