And now, Perry's mother, Mary Louise (Meryl Streep), is coming to town and looking for answers. Perry died in Season 1, but he didn't accidentally die.
"We're kidding ourselves if we think people will stop talking", Nicole Kidman's Celeste Wright tells Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley) and Renata Klein (Laura Dern) as the women sit in a auto.
The new season picks up after the events of the original miniseries.
In the teaser, Jane (played by Woodley) realises the group are being referred to as the "Monterey Five" - "like we all have scarlet letters on our backs".
"I want to know what happened that night", she says to Madeline.
Writer/producer David E. Kelley said Season 2 starts with the ladies seeming "very well put together, but then the fissures and fractures begin to emerge. I don't think I would get the truth, would I?"
Big Little Lies, based on the novel by Liane Moriarty, was initially expected to be a one-and-done limited series. When it debuted on HBO in 2017, it became an instant sensation, raking in four Golden Globe wins and eight Emmys, including acting awards for Kidman, Dern, and Alexander Skarsgård, who co-starred as Kidman's vicious husband. That will probably be it.
