HBO has finally dropped the trailer for the second season of Big Little Lies. Season one left us on an unexpected cliffhanger. Throughout the episodes we follow Madeline Mackenzie played by Reese Witherspoon, Celeste Wright played by Nicole Kidman, Jane Chapman played by Shailene Woodley, and a little bit of Bonnie Carlson played by Zoe Kravitz. Obviously, this was some great casting – but the trailer for season two shows us that Meryl Streep will be joining the cast as a
The women live in a unique world in Monterey. At the end of season one, we finally learn the victim and the culprit after a murder took place. It’s unexpected, but if you’ve seen season one, it all makes sense.
The trailer for season two shows us just how much more drama to expect in Monterey after the murder. Everyone has their secrets and lies. No one is willing to out the culprit, and it’s for good reason. We learn that the women are now known as “The Monterey Five” to other people after a man asks Jane if she’s a part of that group while standing on the beach.
In a conversation between Bonnie and Madeline, Bonnie says that they’re going to get them. They’re going to figure out the lies. It shows each woman screaming at the top of her lungs, undetermined now if it’s in fear or in anger. However, the most chilling part is Meryl Streep. She wants to know who killed her son – if there’s anything we know about Meryl Streep, she’s going to put on the performance of a lifetime. Even as a fictional character, we know that she is going to figure out who the culprit is. It already appears as though she’ll stop at nothing to bring her sons murderer to justice
Anything could happen in the town of Monterey. There was already so much going on, so many struggles, so many fights. The women’s friendship was never in question, but when there are secrets and lies, it can put a strain on any friendship. Who knows what’s going to happen in the second season in a world where anything can happen. Someone may fall apart. There could be another murder. These women and their closeness could come to an end, or it could hold them closer together, it could tighten their friendship.
With much speculation, we are more than happy to welcome the second season this June.
In Monterey the only thing that matters is reputation. These women all love their children, they have families, they have lives. How far are they willing to go to protect themselves or to protect one another?
With the anticipation building, we welcome
