Foxtel keeps the HBO hits coming: Big Little Lies 2 launch date

• The first season of the award-winning Big Little Lies is based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book.

The “Monterey Five” are back, Foxtel has announced just a day after the premier of Game of Thrones.

Another Foxtel hit series should be the anticipated second season of the smash-hit HBO series Big Little Lies, which will premiere on Foxtel on Monday June 10 at 11am AEST, the same time as the US, with a primetime encore on Fox Showcase at 8.30pm AEST.

Season two will see the return of the star-studded cast Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Zoe Kravitz, along with the addition of iconic award-winning actress Meryl Streep.

The darkly comedic seven-part drama series will continue to explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and vicious ferocity of sound parenting.

Multiple characters are set to deal with the death of Perry Wright (played in season one by Alexander Skarsgard) and the prospect of moving past a life-altering event.

The first season of the award-winning Big Little Lies is based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book. The season took home eight Emmy Awards in 2017, including Outstanding Limited Series and acting wins for Kidman, Dern and Skarsgard. It picked up the same four awards at the Golden Globes.

Creator and writer David E. Kelley returns for season two, with Andrea Arnold directing. Witherspoon and Kidman are executive producers.

Every episode of season one of Big Little Lies is currently available to stream through Foxtel On Demand on internet-connected iQ set-top-boxes and on streaming service Foxtel Now.
