As many "Big Little Lies" fans will remember from Season 1, Perry would often physically abuse his wife Celeste (Kidman), and leave her an emotional wreck.

The three-time Oscar victor will reportedly play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright portrayed by Alexander Skarsgård, who has died during the opening season.

On Wednesday, HBO announced that Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep would be upping the star power of Big Little Lies by joining the show for season 2.

Streep, the most-nominated actor in Oscar history, picked up her 21st nod for this year's awards for her role in the newspaper drama "The Post".

Meryl Streep's character will come to Monterey searching for answers about her son's death, and to make sure that her twin grandsons are okay after losing their beloved father. No stranger to great movies, some of Streep's famous films include, Sophie's Choice, The Hours, and The Devil Wears Prada.

Variety's sources claim the fresh Oscar nominee will earn $800,000 per episode. Streep is repped by CAA. Series creator David E. Kelley has written all seven episodes, just as he did for the last season. The first season of the show was based on the novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty, with season two based partially on a new story by the author.

Andrea Arnold is directing the entire season.

It's also been reported that Alexander Skarsgård, who won an Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award for his performance in the hit series, would appear in season two in some capacity.
