Meryl Steep was spotted filming season two of HBO’s hit series Big Little Lies this week alongside Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.
The 68-year-old is playing Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Alexander Skarsgard’s character Perry.
Reese confirmed the news that Meryl signed on for season two while on Late Night with Seth Meyers saying, “Well, she sent an email to Nicole and I, and it said, ‘OK, I read the part and I love it and I’m going to do it.’ And I like dropped the phone, like mic drop, but I phone dropped.”
On Twitter, Reese shared her excitement for the new season saying, “Can’t wait for y’all to see what we have in store!”
Proving to be a massive success, season two of the drama series was announced in December and began filming on March 16 with cast members confirming their return on social media.
The entire cast returned for season 2 including Reese, Nicole, Zoe Kravitz, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley.
Season two does not yet have an official premiere date, but it’s predicted to be released sometime in 2019.
