Lest you think the Big Little Lies Season 2 casting of Meryl Streep might eat into the budget, HBO won’t skimp on our second trip to Monterey. The whole of Season 1’s expansive cast has formally signed on for the Emmy-winner’s 2019 return, including our beloved wine-sloshed Laura Dern.
The writing was already on those fabulous Monterey walls, but Big Little Lies is officially getting bigger. HBO confirms a second season of its Emmy-winning drama in the works with the original cast, and Andrea Arnold taking over the director’s chair.
You’d be hard-pressed to top the one-off, wine-soaked perfection of Big Little Lies, but HBO can’t help flying a little closer to that Monterey sun. A new report suggest Season 2 is officially a go, with production earmarked for 2018.
If all of my knowledge about Los Angeles was taken from movies I’ve seen (and, honestly, it is), I’d say that L.A. was full of high-profile murders, shifty-eyed detectives, and women who look very cool doing regular stuff. That’s certainly the vibe I get from the trailer of Aaron Katz’s Gemini, which stars Lola Kirke as an actress’s (Zoe Kravitz) personal assistant and buddy who gets wrapped up in a shocking murder mystery.
