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.
Even though life seems to go on and move forward in the luxurious California coastal city of Monterey, there’s an underlying air of fear, guilt, deception, and desperation that permeate through each day that passes since the tragic death of Perry Wright — Celeste’s (Nicole Kidman) husband — in the end of the first season.
With the arrival of Perry’s mother, played by award-winning actress Meryl Streep, things are bound to get messy even as the women of “Monterey Five” try their hardest to push past this life-altering event and lead quiet lives. Make sure to tune in to this darkly comedic seven-part series based on the bestselling novel by Liane Moriarty, when it premieres on FOX Showcase come June 10 at 11:00am AEST.

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 main plot line would feature none other than iconic and 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 become 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.
