All of your favourite Big Little Lies ladies will be back for season 2

Whether or not you think season two of Big Little Lies should happen at all, HBO is going to try its best to lure you in with confirmation that all the actresses will be back.

While some had been announced and others assumed, its nice to make it official. Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon will all return for the show’s second season, which also welcomes Meryl Street.

Some more surprising returns have also been revealed, but *warning* it’s a spoiler.

Season two of Big Little Lies will air on Sky Atlantic in the UK, and consist of seven new episodes written by David E Kelley and directed by Andrea Arnold. Production begins next month.
