"We're kidding ourselves if we think people will stop talking", Nicole Kidman's Celeste Wright tells Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley) and Renata Klein (Laura Dern) as the women sit in a auto.

The HBO miniseries will kick off its second season on June 9 with seven episodes and two major additions: a new director - "American Honey's" Andrea Arnold - and the queen of the screen herself, Meryl Streep.

HBO aired the trailer in the U.S. ahead of the season eight premiere of Game of Thrones.

For those of you who don't remember, Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Jane (Shailene Woodley), Renata (Laura Dern), and Bonnie covered up their involvement in the death of Celeste's abusive husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) in the season 1 finale.

Although the women are obviously doing their best to keep what happened that night between themselves, that won't be so easy when Perry's mother, played by Streep, shows up.

"My son is dead", she tells Madeline (Witherspoon). "I wanna know what happened that night".

Writer/producer David E. Kelley said Season 2 starts with the ladies seeming "very well put together, but then the fissures and fractures begin to emerge". Check out the Big Little Lies season 2 trailer in the player below and look for the series to return on Sunday, June 9, 9 PM ET, exclusively on HBO.
