Oscar and Emmy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep is set to fill domestic screens in loungerooms the world over when she stars in season two of the hit HBO series Big Little Lies.
Streep will join the main cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Alexander Skarsgård and Adam Scott.
She will play the character of Mary Louise Wright, mother to the abusive Perry Wright (Skarsgård), who was revealed to have been the one who died during the Emmy-winning first season of the drama, but… well, we won’t spoil it for you.
Fans of the show are as surprised as the rest of us that there is indeed going to be a second season, since the first one pretty much chewed up all the quality content of Aussie author Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel. Even the author herself might be surprised to see how her characters evolve.
Where the show’s writers and directors will draw inspiration from is anyone’s guess. Oh what am I talking about? You’d only have to look over your backyard fence to find real life suburban drama for inspiration in this warped day-and-age. Antonino Tati
