First Photo Of Meryl Streep On ‘Big Little Lies’ Season 2 Released

Production on the second season of Big Little Lies is in full swing but fans will have to wait until 2019 to watch new episodes. To tide fans over until then, Nicole Kidman shared a photo from the first day on set. She’s pictured with her onscreen sons and the one and only Meryl Streep.

The official HBO Facebook page also shared the photo, but with the caption “Family is everything. Here’s your first look at Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman as Mary Louise Wright and Celeste Wright in Big Little Lies.”

Streep joins the show as Mary Louise Wright, the mother-in-law of Nicole Kidman’s character Celeste Wright and mother of Alexander Skarsgard’s Perry Wright. She arrives in Monterey concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren and to search for answers surrounding the death of her son Perry.

This marks a bit of a homecoming for Streep. She previously worked with HBO on the miniseries adaptation of Angels in America. That leading role earned her an Emmy. Chances look pretty good that she’ll get another one.
