Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are on board for season two. A new direction, Andrea Arnold is coming on board of the seven-episode season. She will executive produce as well with Witherspoon and Kidman.
"I'm excited to announce the return of Big Little Lies," HBO's Casey Bloys said. "David Kelley wrote beautiful scripts and Reese and Nicole were, once again, a force to be reckoned with, reuniting the cast and recruiting the talented Andrea Arnold to direct. We look forward to working with this amazing group of artists."
Big Little Lies season one was a critical success and picked up numerous Emmys, including individual acting awards for Kidman, Dern and Skarsgård.
HBO's official logline for the new season: "The subversive, darkly comedic drama Big Little Lies will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom."
