Three days earlier, Zoë Kravitz — known to Big Little Lies fans as free-spirited mom Bonnie — posted a selfie, writing: “Bonnie’s. Back. #BLL2.” And Shailene Woodley, who portrays single mother Jane, uploaded a smiling shot with the caption: “JANES BACK. LET’S DO THIS #BLL2.”

Based on the bestselling novel by Australian author Liane Moriarty, the first season centered on a mysterious murder at a ritzy Monterey public school trivia night.

Big Little Lies will be back for a seven-episode installment in 2019. Witherspoon and Nicole Kidmanwill again star and executive produce the drama.

“I’m thrilled to be bringing back this talented team of artists,” Witherspoon said in a statement on the HBO website.

It was announced in January that Meryl Streep would be joining the cast in the sophomore season as as Celeste’s mother-in-law Mary Louise Wright. She arrives after growing “concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren” after her son Perry’s (Alexander Skarsgard) death.
