The lies are bound to catch up as the “Monterey Five” returns for its long awaited second season on HBO. The recently released trailer shows a preview of the aftermath of the shocking season finale that left even more questions, mysteries, and well, lies. What happens next with the arrival of an unexpected visitor who’s dead-set on seeking the truth?
Big Little Lies Season 2 TV Preview
Season 2 is said to pick up where the first season of Big Little Lies left off, with new material written by Liane Moriarty herself. The show stars none other than iconic award-winning actress Meryl Streep, who will play Perry’s mother, Mary Louise Wright. The trailer sees her conversing with Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) about searching for the truth behind her son’s sudden and tragic death, which shows a peek of what her dynamic with the “Monterey Five” would turn out as the new season unfolds.
There’s a lot at stake with the secret that the five women are keeping. Things could get even messier as multiple characters come into the picture to deal with Perry’s death. With more questions arise, the truth becomes more elusive than ever — but one thing’s for sure, viewers can certainly expect a more intense and thrilling season from this award-winning star-studded cast.
Starring Meryl Streep (Mama Mia), Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge), Reece Witherspoon (Walk The Line), and Laura Dern (Jurassic Park), the Big Little Lies series is available to stream on demand in Australia. Find out exactly how to watch it in this guide.

Must See TV for Big Little Lies fans
Big Little Lies consists of seven episodes and has some truly gripping and funny storylines. Once you’ve got through the entire series, you may want something else to watch, so we have made a few suggestions below.
Barry (Foxtel / BINGE)
Another dark comedy original series from HBO, Barry follows the story of a former United States Marine who now finds himself working as a low-rent hitman in the Midwest. He begrudgingly travels to Los Angeles with the intention of killing someone, but then ends up finding an accepting community of acting hopefuls within the L.A. theatre scene. It’s a story of one antihero on the cusp of changing his ways, but also struggling to veer away from what feels most natural to him — killing in cold blood. It really is a thin line between guilt and yearning as he continues to fight against his past with season 2, now airing on Foxtel with catch up available on Foxtel Now.
Wentworth (Foxtel/Foxtel Now)
After that bloody finale in season 6, it’s going to be a battle of power between two emerging titans Rita and Marie. Protection appears to be the main overarching theme with even the noblest characters becoming morally compromised in their mission to look after the people they love, regardless of the consequences. Make sure to catch the premiere this May, and also catch up on all episodes from seasons 1 to 6 for free with Foxtel Now’s free 10-day trial!
Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists (Foxtel)
The sequel and spin off to the popular hit series of the same name, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists does share quite a lot with Big Little Lies — for one, there’s death, deception, and you guessed it, lies. The show stars Alison and Mona from the original PLL series, both of which find themselves in a new city supposedly wanting to start a new life. But tragedy and mystery find them once again as a student is found murdered at their school. Find out how it all unravels this time around with season 1 now airing on Foxtel, and with catch-up episodes also available on Foxtel Now.
Devices for watching Big Little Lies
The following are the list of compatible mobile and internet-connected devices for which you can stream Big Little Lies whether at home or on the go, with new apps and devices being added as they become available.
For years, Apple TV devices have been an ideal instant streaming solution that does it all. There are two models available – Apple TV HD handles video up to 1080p, while Apple TV 4K adds full support for 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision. Kayo Sports is great on Apple TV, with flawless 4-way Split View.
A hugely popular low-cost streaming solution, Google’s Chromecast got a make-over in 2020, and now comes in two very different flavours. The basic Chromecast is still available, but the newer Google TV version (which replaces the Ultra) adds a remote control and an on-screen interface.
Foxtel Now Box
Foxtel’s own streaming box is an Android TV device that brings the Foxtel Now experience front and centre in its user interface – making it a natural choice if your preferred way of streaming sports is via the live channels that Foxtel Now offers, with on-demand streaming and live free-to-air channels as well.
Amazon Fire TV Stick
This easy alternative comes in three flavours – a budget Lite model, the standard one, and a 4K version. All of them are simple “plug in and go” stick-shaped devices that work similarly to Google’s newest Chromecast, except these use Amazon’s custom user interface and support Alexa voice control.
Nvidia Shield TV
A powerful Android TV streaming device from one of the world’s leading PC graphics companies comes in the form of a small “tube” with connections at either end, along with a slim backlit remote control. It can easily deal with every streaming app under the sun, including Kayo and Foxtel.
