Watch Meryl Streep in the first trailer for Big Little Lies season 2

HBO have unveiled the first trailer for the second season of Big Little Lies.

The highly-anticipated sophomore instalment will see the return of Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz and Adam Scott with the addition of three-time Academy Award winner, Meryl Streep.

She will play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Alexander Skarsgard’s character Perry, who you’ll remember as the abusive – and now (spoiler!) deceased – husband of Celeste (Kidman).

The season will follow the “Monterey Five” (Kidman, Witherspoon, Woodley, Dern and Kravitz) who all have “scarlet letters” on their backs following the mysterious death of Perry.

Crystal Fox and Martin Donovan have also been cast as the parents of Kravitz’s character and Mo McRae will star as a second-grade teacher. Douglas Smith, Poorna Jagannathan and Denis O’Hare will also appear.

The first season received widespread acclaim from critics. It won Emmy Awards for Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (Kidman), Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie (Skarsgard) and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (Dern).

Big Little Lies will premiere 9 June on HBO – watch the trailer below.
