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? Find out when the second season of Big Little Lies premieres on June 10, airing at the same time as the US.
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 has already started streaming in Australia.

Must See TV for Big Little Lies fans
Big Little Lies consists of seven episodes and looks 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/Foxtel Now)
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)
Foxtel’s critically acclaimed original series, Wentworth, finally makes it return with season 7 on May 28. 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!

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.
