If Big Little Lies didn’t already have enough A list actors, the HBO series just added Meryl Streep to its season 2 cast.
The three-time Oscar winner has signed on to play the character Mary Louise Wright — the mother-in-law of Nicole Kidman’s character Celeste Wright and the mother of none other than Perry Wright, the abusive husband portrayed by Alexander Skarsgård.
This announcement is huge, seeing as though the iconic actress hardly ever does television.
Big Little Lies is already an awards magnet, its freshman season dominating the TV categories at the recent Golden Globes and also winning eight Emmys last fall.
Big Little Lies season 2 is expected to air in 2019, until then you can watch season one on On Demand.
The HBO series stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley.
