Meryl Streep to Star in HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’ Season Two

Meryl Streep will join HBO’s Big Little Lies cast for its second season. She is slated to play Mary Louise Wright, mother of Perry Wright, the male lead in the show. The critically acclaimed series—starring Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoe Kravitz—recently took home eight Emmys and four Golden Globes. The show was originally going to be a close-ended miniseries, but the seven-episode second season will go beyond Liane Moriarity’s book.
