As season 2 of Big Little Lies and the leading ladies of Monterey prepare for another year of small-town drama, some key players from season 1 are also planning their triumphant return. Take a look at the familiar faces that will also be returning for season 2 below!
Merrin DungeyABC/Sven Frenzel
Dungey played Detective Adrienne Quinlan in season 1. She spent her time looking into the murder of Perry Wright and will definitely still be carrying that torch heading into season 2.
Weigert played Celeste and Perry’s therapist Dr. Amanda Reisman in season 1. She will be a guest star throughout the season.
Newton played Madeline’s teenage daughter Abby with whom she shared with her ex-husband. She will be returning as a series regular for season 2.
Sokolovic will be returning as Tori, the wife of Joseph, who was the theater director that Madeline had an affair with in Season 1. She will be returning as a series regular for season 2.
There will also be some fresh faces joining the cast as well. Crystal Fox (The Haves and the Have Nots) will be coming on as Bonnie’s mother Elizabeth Howard and Mo McRae (Empire) will be playing a new teacher at the kid’s school named Michael Perkins.
All of the original cast will be returning for season 2 as well including Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz. Plus, Meryl Streep will be booking her ticket to Monterey to play Perry’s mother, Mary Louise Wright.
Are you excited for season 2?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
