Oscar and Emmy-winning actress Meryl Streep has signed on to star opposite Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman in season two of HBO’s Big Little Lies.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Streep will play Mary Louise Wright--the mother to Alexander Skarsgard’s abusive (and now deceased) character Perry Wright.
Mary Louise is described as a woman who is concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following Perry's death and arrives in Monterey searching for answers.
Season two of Big Little Lies is expected to premiere in 2019.
Some memories are so visceral, you realize as they happen that they’ll be with you forever. I’ll always remember where I was when I heard about Meryl Streep joining Big Little Lies.— Ben Platt (@BenSPLATT) January 24, 2018
