    Meryl Streep is starring in season two of "Big Little Lies," adding more woman power to the Nicole Kidman-Reese Witherspoon drama.

    HBO said in a statement Wednesday that Streep will play Mary Louise Wright, mother-in-law to Kidman's character, Celeste.

    Mary Louise comes seeking answers about last season's violent death of her son, Perry, played by Alexander Skarsgard.

    Kidman and Witherspoon star in and produce the series, which reaped Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards as best series. Kidman, Skarsgard and Laura Dern also collected multiple trophies.
