Big Little Lies season 2: Shailene Woodley on Meryl Streep’s arrival

Big Little LiesIn just one week’s time Big Little Lies season 2 is going to arrive on HBO and if there’s one word to describe it, this would be it: Harrowing. For certain women within Monterey, much of the season could be about trying to hide a secret. For Maryl Streep’s character of Mary Louise, meanwhile, it could be about something altogether different: Trying to uncover said secret. She will be working to figure out what happened to Perry, and will do whatever she can to uncover some of that information … even though there is going to be resistance. Tremendous resistance, in fact.

Want a little bit more insight on this very subject? Well, here is just some of what Shailene Woodley had to say on the problem of Mary Louise in a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show late last week: “I can’t say much about it … [but] Meryl’s a problem.”

That’s not exactly the most robust of quotes, but you can watch Shailene and Ellen (who has apparently seen the first few episodes already) talk things out during the video below. The two have a great conversation about secrets, and about how good apparently, the start of the season is. Big Little Lies is going to have a hard time surprising anyone at this point with how good it is — mostly because the show’s already been able to showcase some of its greatness already. There is no secret out there in regards to just how strong Big Little Lies is so with that, the writers are going to have to figure out some other ways to entertain. Could that be by throwing one wrench after the next into the story? It’s likely.

We know that there’s going to be a heck of a lot of drama coming up in this new season, and you are going to have a chance to see it all play out in just one week’s time. We’ll be back with some more news leading up to the premiere over at the link here, and we highly suggest that you come back and check some of that scoop out.

No matter what transpires, we certainly know that season 2 is going to be contending for all the awards, even though we’ve got a feeling that it’s going to have to compete as a drama series as opposed to a limited one. Times are a-changing for the series, and the new rules for the Emmys are proof positive of that. (If you don’t care about the awards and just want to enjoy a great story, then you are certainly going to have an opportunity to do that here — nothing really to worry about at all.)

What do you want to see when it comes to Big Little Lies season 2, and are you more excited to see this story than ever before? Be sure to share right now in the comments, and remember to come back soon for some other news. (Photo: HBO.)
