*This Post Contains Spoilers For Big Little Lies Season One* Just last month HBO gave us our first teaser trailer for the second season of the hit show Big Little Lies, based on the novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty. Now the network has finally released the first official full-length trailer and it's safe to say that the Monterey Five are definitely feeling the impact of the big little lies they told in season one.
At the end of season one, we see Bonnie, played by Zoe Kravitz, push Alexander Skarsgard's character Perry down a flight of concrete stairs, killing him. The rest of the women, Jane (Shailene Woodley), Madeleine (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and Renata (Laura Dern) pledge to claim the fall was an accident and vow to protect Bonnie. When Perry's mom, played by none other than Meryl Streep, arrives in town looking for answers about her son's death, it seems to shake everyone up.
The trailer begins by showing life in Monterey seemingly back to normal, with Madeline being the same loud-mouthed, pushy school mom she's always been, a 60's theme party is happening at some point and Bonnie seems to be trying to regain her zen. Renata continues to be the baddest B in town while Celeste is still struggling with Perry's death and the realization that not only was he abusive and unfaithful, but he's also the father of Jane's son. Bonnie seems to be having the hardest time dealing with Perry's death, telling Madeline that "the lie" is going to get them before being seen outside a police station.
It's Streep's presence in season two that may just be the reason for the big little lies to fall apart. Streep's character feels that her son's death wasn't an accident, and won't rest until she finds out what really happened to him. "My son is dead, and I want answers," she says to Celeste as they discuss Perry's untimely death. "I gave you answers," Celeste replies before Streep reveals that she knows more than she let on. "Yes but you left some things out, didn't you? You were planning to leave him, and you learned of his infidelity just ten seconds before he died," she says. "You left that out, too."
It looks like season two is going to be just as explosive and amazing as season one. Check out the trailer below and make sure to tune in when Big Little Lies season two premieres on HBO June 9.
