We know y’all THINK you’re getting rid of your HBO subscription now that Game of Thrones is over… but the gag is, the network always has another explosive must-see series in store. With that said, if you haven’t tuned into Big Little Lies starring Shailene Woodley, Zoë Kravitz, Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and new cast member Meryl Streep, you’re missing out!!
On top of executing a bomb *ss season 1 script flawlessly, the ladies showed up to their season 2 premiere in NYC on Wednesday, May 29 looking GOOD in ALL the black (Yassss Zoë!!). Here’s a short synopsis of their second installment (without spoilers), courtesy of HBO:
“On the surface, in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, everything seems the same. The mothers continue to dote, the husbands support, the children remain adorable and the houses are just as beautiful. But the night of the school fundraiser changed all that, leaving the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” – Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie – bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.”
If you missed the season 2 trailer, watch below and tune into the series June 9.

“I don’t see how it’s practical for us to continue to shoot there,” Iger reportedly continued. “I rather doubt we will.”
