Hollywood veteran Meryl Streep has joined the cast of American drama series Big Little Lies season 2.
Streep will play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright played by Alexander Skarsgård. Concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry’s death, Mary Louise arrives in Monterey searching for answers.
The news comes on the heels of Streep receiving an Oscar nomination for her leading role in Steven Spielberg’s The Post. Streep will reportedly make around $800,000 per episode.
Actresses Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon will again executive produce in addition to starring in it.
