At the end of Season 1 of Big Little Lies, we finally found who had died and how. But that’s just the beginning of the story.

Celeste’s abusive husband may be gone, but in the new season, the Monterey Five have a much fiercer adversary to face: his mother, played by Meryl Streep. She’ll stop at absolutely nothing to get answers.

Nicole Kidman beat fellow BLL actress Reese Witherspoon to the Golden Globe for her performance as Celeste, while Laura Dern trumped Shailene Woodley in the Best Supporting Actress Category. Alexander Skarsgard won the Best Supporting Actor nod for playing Perry. The same scenario played out at the Emmy Awards. The series also bagged the Golden Globe and Emmy for Best Series and Limited Series respectively.

Season 1 is available to binge-watch on Showmax if you need to catch up.

Season 2 arrives on Showmax and DStv at the same time – every Monday night at 21:00 for seven weeks, until 22 July 2019. Stream episode 1 right now.
