"Big Little Lies" Season 2 Trailer: Meryl Streep Joins The Cast

The 'Monterey Five' are back.

HBO has just dropped the first teaser trailer for the upcoming second season of Big Little Lies featuring a new character, Mary Louise Wright, played by Meryl Streep.

In the first trailer for season 2 of HBO's Big Little Lies, the Monterey five are back. Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), Renata Klein (Laura Dern), and Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley) speak in hushed tones in a parked car as Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman) announces, "we're kidding ourselves if we think people have stopped talking." Celeste is referring to the events that transpired last season, resulting in the death of her abusive husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgård). Bonnie Carlson (Zoe Kravitz) is also worried: "it's going to get us, it's going to get us all," she asserts. "The lie."

Things grow even more tangled as Perry's grieving mother, Louise, (Meryl Streep) arrives in Monterey looking for answers.

"I want to know what happened that night," she says to Madeline. "I'm very tempted to ask you, but I don't think I would get the truth, would I?"

Season 2 will premiere June 9th on HBO. Watch the trailer below.
