Meryl Streep Joins 'Big Little Lies' Season 2

Following months of rumours, HBO confirmed in December that Big Little Lies - which was originally envisioned as a one-off miniseries - would return for a second season.

Triple Oscar victor Meryl Streep is officially joining the cast of Big Little Lies, season two. One thing's for sure: HBO nearly certainly doesn't want Big Little Lies going head to head with the final season of Game of Thrones in the same categories in the same show.

In April's season finale, Bonnie Carlson (Zoë Kravitz) had killed the abusive Perry by pushing him down concrete stairs while he was attacking Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley) and Renata Klein (Laura Dern).

Starring Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard and Reese Witherspoon.

The news comes on the heels of Streep receiving an Oscar nomination for her leading role in Steven Spielberg's "The Post". HBO says the series will continue to explore "malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting" - simply put: drama abounds! But to talk about who she'll be playing, we'll need to spoil the terrific ending of the first season. Season 1 was based on the novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty, with Season 2 based partially on a new story by the author.

While Streep is certainly a huge get, she's not the only new addition to season 2, as acclaimed filmmaker Andrea Arnold will step in for Jean-Marc Vallée as director on all seven new episodes. The last time she was on the network was for her performance in the television adaptation of Angels in America, which won her both an Emmy and Golden Globe.

Big Little Lies season 2 is expected to air in 2019.
