The image features Renata (Dern) and her frenemy Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) sitting outside Seaside Coffee Shop in Monterey. “Madeline and Renata are back,” Dern captioned it.
Witherspoon later shared the same photo and posted an Instagram Story from set. “How was I?” she asked Dern after they wrapped. “You were amazing,” Dern replied. “I knew it!” Witherspoon declared with Peak Madeline Type-A ferocity.
Have Madeline and Renata completely put aside their differences after the deadly events of Season 1? Seems like it for now, though they don’t exactly look excited to be together. Maybe they’re discussing Meryl Streep’s impending arrival to Monterey? The three-time Oscar winner will play Mary Louise Wright, Celeste’s (Nicole Kidman) mother-in-law who drops by in the wake of her son Perry’s (Alexander Skarsgard). Someone please post a Meryl pic next!
The entire Season 1 cast is returning to the second outing, which again is written by David E. Kelley based on a story by “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty. Andrea Arnold is directing all seven episodes, replacing Jean-Marc Vallee. Production started on Friday.
“Big Little Lies” will return next year on HBO.
