‘Big Little Lies’ to return for second season in June
Based on the novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Liane Moriarty, TV Series ‘Big Little Lies’ will return for its seven-episode second season in June.
With stars like Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman, the new season will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting.
Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…and the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.
With all seven episodes directed and executive produced by Andrea Arnold (“Red Road,” “Fish Tank,” “Wuthering Heights,” “American Honey”; Oscar winner for “Wasp”), ‘Big Little Lies’ features teleplays by David E. Kelley.
The show will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.
