The Great Little Lies was one of the biggest surprises of last year. The continuation of the sequel to the parade casting proved to be a real big bet.

The seven-seater first season of Liane Moriarty’s novel, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and Alexander Skarsgard formed the lead. Not all of them return to the new season, but the makers make sure that there is no shortage of acting.

he sequel is joined by the multiple Oscar-winning actress, Meryl Streep, who plays Alexander Perry’s mother, Perry’s mother. Though the Big Thing was originally a mini-series, the book was completely processed and the story was closed, HBO gave the fans the green light for the fun.

David E. Kelley will also be recording the second set of seven sessions, but the director will not be Jean-Marc Vallée (Before I Die, Wild) but Andrea Arnold (Aquarium). Vallée, however, does not leave the production, as part of the production as a producer.
