The show was originally released as a standalone miniseries with no plans for a sequel.

"We're kidding ourselves if we think people will stop talking", Nicole Kidman's Celeste Wright tells Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley) and Renata Klein (Laura Dern) as the women sit in a vehicle.

The women banded together and hid the true cause of his death.

Together, they make up the "Monterey Five", as people are now calling them.

Joining the cast is queen Meryl Streep who plays the distressed mother-in-law in search of answers as to how her son died last season.

"I want to know what happened that night", she says to Madeline. "I'm very tempted to ask you, but I..."

Back in February, executive producer and writer David E. Kelley teased that "fissures and fractures begin to emerge" within the Monterey moms' lives in Season 2, and "once the crevasses start to widen, it escalates pretty quickly". Andrea Arnold directed every episode this year.

Based on Liane Moriarty's novel and created by David E. Kelley, the first season of Big Little Lies won eight Emmys in 2017, including Outstanding Limited Series and acting wins for Kidman, Dern and Alexander Skarsgård.
