Big Little Lies season two is expected to air on HBO in 2019. Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep is joining Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley in the drama series, marking the first time she's returned to a major television show since winning an Emmy in the early 2000s for her work in Angels in America. HBO's Emmy and Golden Globe-winning limited series has been turned into an ongoing and has brought on the Hollywood heavyweight for the second season in a role that will address the fallout of the first season's climax.

HBO has announced that Streep's character will arrive in Monterey "concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry's death and on the hunt for answers".

The news comes on the heels of Streep receiving an Oscar nomination for her leading role in Steven Spielberg's "The Post".

Fans of Big Little Lies should vividly recall that Skarsgard's Perry was a violent and abusive husband to his wife Celeste (Nicole Kidman) before in a spur of the moment decision, the five central women covered up how Bonnie Carlson (Zoe Kravitz) killed him in an attempt to save Celeste from Perry's savage beatings.

Trump is sharp, however must reduce weight: White Home physician
The "girther movement" has erupted on Twitter , and is claiming President Donald Trump's doctor did not give Trump's true weight. According to the report carried out by Dr Ronny Jackson, the 71-year-old is 6ft 3ins (1.9m) tall and weighs 239 pounds (108kg).

HBO welcomed Streep, who received her 21st Academy Award nomination Tuesday for "The Post", to the cast on Twitter.

So, if there's any TV show you SHOULD be watching this year, it's clearly Big Little Lies. And sources say director David E. Kelley has already penned all seven scripts partially based on a story by Moriarty.

Streep previously won Emmys for the 1978 miniseries "Holocaust", the 2003 miniseries adaptation of "Angels in America" and just past year for her narration on "Five Came Back".

Both Kidman and Witherspoon will again executive produce in addition to starring, and Skarsgård is rumoured to return in some capacity. American Honey's Andrea Arnold will direct, taking over from season one's director Jean-Marc Vallée.
