Reese Witherspoon knows how to cure our Games of Thrones fever. On Sunday night, just before the Winterfell reunion aired, HBO dropped a new trailer for Big Little Lies season 2. The new season, which will continue past the events of Liane Moriarty's 2014 novel, brings Meryl Streep into the fold as Perry Wright's mother, eager to uncover what really happened to her son.
If you remember last season, Streep's homecoming won't bode well for our liars. The trailer opens with Celeste, Madeline, Renata, and Jane—played by Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley, respectively—in a car fearing that the gossip around them has gotten too intense.
"It's going to get us. It's going to get us all", Bonnie, played by Zoe Kravitz, tells Madeline.
The Monterey 5, as a passerby calls them in the trailer, must evade suspicion from their quiet beach town, before their web of lies threatens the pristine lives they've built. Production designer John Paino and set decorator Amy Wells made sure the dark truths stand out against their perfect setting.
“We thought a lot about what these women do, how they behaved, and how they were described in the book and did very detailed boards, taking things on and off as the characters evolved,” Wells explained to Vogue.
The women play in contrast to each other, but all in great taste. Witherspoon's Madeline outfits her beachfront abode with clean, transitional pieces that blend seamlessly with her heirlooms, while Dern's Renata lets design convey her career woman aesthetic, hard edges and Kondo-esque organization.
But it's Celeste's kid kingdom that had the art department pulling in all the luxe touches.
"This house is my favorite, hands down,"Wells told Vogue about Celeste's California castle. "We put everything we lust after here. Her rugs are exquisite. There isn’t anything in Celeste’s house that I wouldn’t have in my dream house."
The 9 episode miniseries will premiere June 9th in GOT's Sunday spot, giving us a two week break post Battle of Winterfell to dive back into drama. Need a little Monterey inspiration in your spring refresh? Shop the infamous 5's style below.
