  • 'Big Little Lies' Season 2: Alexander Skarsgard Returning as Perry? | TVLine

Screen icon Meryl Streep has joined the second season of Big Little Lies. She will reportedly play Alexander Skarsgård's character Perry's mother.

Triple Oscar victor Meryl Streep is officially joining the cast of Big Little Lies, season two.

When HBO revealed they were definitely moving ahead with Big Little Lies Season 2, even the most excited of Monterey mothers would not dare to hope that they'd have royalty coming for a visit to their schools.

Big Little Lies season two is expected to air on HBO in 2019.

But considering the critically-acclaimed success of the HBO show, which has totally dominated the award season raking in eight Emmys and four Golden Globes, it makes ideal sense for the 68-year-old to join the A-list cast of incredible women made up of Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Zoë Kravitz. She replaces Jean-Marc Vallée, who helmed the last season. With her nod for The Post - her 21st Academy Award nomination - Meryl has broken her own record for the most Oscar acting nominations.

Season 2, which will be written by Kelley again, will consist of seven episodes like the first. Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, who plays Perry's widow, Celeste, are scheduled to return. Witherspoon, Kidman and Streep are the only confirmed stars so far, but the rest of the cast is expected to return, including Skarsgard, who would likely appear via flashbacks.

Perry turned out to be the victim of the mysterious death that plagued the first season of the HBO series. HBO says the series will continue to explore "malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting" - simply put: drama abounds! Kidman has won an Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award for her role as a victim of domestic abuse.
