“We all have scarlet letters on our back,” Jane tells the group about what they’ve done. “It’s gonna get us. It’s gonna get us all — the lie,” Bonnie adds.
The second season of this subversive, darkly comedic drama will explore the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.
The Monterey Five – Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Jane (Shailene Woodley), Renata (Laura Dern) and Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) – are joined by Celeste’s visiting mother-in-law, Mary Louise (Meryl Streep), and their husbands, Ed (Adam Scott), Nathan (James Tupper) and Gordon (Jeffrey Nordling), in this seven-episode season.
Created by David E. Kelley, the first season was an adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty and covered all the source material. Despite being initially billed as a limited series, Kelley and HBO decided to bring the show back for a second season, with all the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning talent on board, after it became a critical and watercooler favorite.
