Big Little Lies boss David E. Kelley says ‘a cord and core of stress’ runs through the Monterey Five in season 2
Got a secret, can you keep it? That’s the challenge facing Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Jane (Shailene Woodley), Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz), and Renata (Laura Dern) as the second season of HBO’s Big Little Lies arrives, bringing with it new lies, guilt, and Meryl Streep.
“We left off with a lie, so it would have been disingenuous not to mine that lie for all its malignancy,” says writer and showrunner David E. Kelley. “It’s going to result in more skewed fractures and fissures in the friendships between the women, some of the marriages, and some of the individual psyches.”
Big Little Lies, based on Liane Moriarty’s novel of the same name, was initially a limited series in 2017, but after its success — the ratings, the memes, and the eight Emmy trophies — HBO quickly got the star-studded band back together, this time with Streep in tow. Kelley returned to pen the script, with help from an unpublished novella that Moriarty wrote and American Honey filmmaker Andrea Arnold directed all seven episodes.
“Liane had done a novella with ideas of where she thought the characters would go, some brilliant ideas including the idea to bring back Perry’s mother, so I think going forward from year 2, it’s all fresh material,” Kelley said. The exception is with Bonnie, whose backstory will be parsed out more this season as she comes into the spotlight.
In the first episode of the new season of Big Little Lies, we return to the idyllic California coastal town of Monterey a few months after the climactic costume party in last season’s finale, at which the ladies intervened in an altercation between Celeste and her abusive husband, Perry (Alexander Skarsgård), resulting in Bonnie pushing him down a flight of stairs to his death. That moment freed Celeste, but now traps her in a bond with the women as they vow to protect Bonnie as the police investigation into Perry’s death intensifies.
Reese appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier today, to promote the upcoming 2nd season of Big Little Lies. It was another fun interview, with Reese talking about the show, Meryl Streep, Legally Blonde 3, The Morning Show and her kids!
