Hollywood legend Meryl Streep has joined the cast of award-winning drama series Big Little Lies Season 2. Streep will play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgård). Concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry's death, Mary Louise arrives in Monterey searching for answers, reports variety.com.

Witherspoon on Thursday said that she is thrilled with Streep on board. "Beyond thrilled to have the one, the only, Meryl Streep joining the cast of 'Big Little Lies' for season 2. Get ready for more wine, secrets, and 'Big Little Lies'. Monterey better watch out," Witherspoon tweeted.
