If you’re finding your nights seem a little empty since finishing Big Little Lies, don’t fret – series two is not too far away.
HBO have just revealed a trailer for the studio’s 2019 slate and not only does it feature the first look at the final season of Game of Thrones, it teases the return of Big Little Lies. Alongside clips of Reese and Nicole in full gal pal mode, the debut of Meryl Streep in the series has been revealed. And she is serving us all levels of sass and judgement.
All summer long the cast have taken to Instagram to take us behind the scenes of filming.
Laura Dern posted a snap on Instagram wearing an “Andrea Arnold” t-shirt (who was announced as the director of season 2), as the show wrapped up filming last week.
And of course, what would the end of filming be without an emotional AF post from Reese Witherspoon herself?
In January it was announced that Big Little Lies cast would be joined by Meryl Streep for the new season, and we’ve even had a great sneak peek of her character.
Plus, actors – including heartthrob Mr. Skarsgard – will be returning for season 2 when the show airs in 2019.
Bring on next year…
Shortly after the finale of season 1 was aired, Reese Witherspoon shared what assumed was a season two teaser on her Instagram. Posing with co-stars, Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern, Reese captioned the cast photo, “Spending #SundayFunday with these ladies … working on some new lies.”
The HBO mini-series was based on the novel by Liane Moriarty and despite the fact that there’s no sequel written yet, Reese has previously spoken about working with Moriarty to create one. Reese told E! News: “We’re talking to Liane Moriarty, who wrote the book, about how could these characters go on, what would happen?”
Moriarty added: “I have started to think about ways this could continue. The producers have asked me to see if I can come up with some ideas. I wouldn’t write a new book but perhaps a new story and then we’ll see what happens… I’m absolutely open to it because, once I started thinking, it was too much fun to see what I could do and to see these characters again. And there’s definitely places you can go.”
The show also stars the likes of Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley and Alexander Skarsgård. If you’ve already seen it, please can we talk about that finale?
