Few feathers are about to get ruffled up in the close-knit town of Monterey. With HBO's female-fronted series 'Big Little Lies' officially back in production for a second run, what is the status of relationships? Will the love-hate chemistry between Madeline and Renata continue? And let's address the elephant-size secret in the room - Meryl Streep and her much-awaited appearance on the show. 

Plot details are being guarded closely, and as far as possible, kept under the wraps. But that doesn't stop fans from getting a first glimpse from the BLL set, courtesy actress Laura Dern. 

Taking to Instagram recently, the Emmy-winning actress not only shared the first look of season 2 but also teased what's in store for Madeline and Renata, and their weirdly complicated friendship.

After the dramatic turn of events in the last season - read the death of the antagonistic Perry Wright played by Alexander Skarsgård - the ladies are definitely closer than ever. 

"Madeline and Renata are back. #BLL2," Dern shared, posting a picture with her co-star Reese Witherspoon, who returns for the second time as the feisty Madeline Martha Mackenzie. The mixed emotions were echoed by Witherspoon as well, who re-shared the picture with a different caption: "Watch out Monterey, here we come! #BLL2".

Beside Dern and Witherspoon, the second season of the critically acclaimed show, based on the novel of the same name by Liane Moriarty, will also see series regulars Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Zoe Kravitz, and Adam Scott reprise their roles. And there's another big cast addition as well, Streep, who is all set to fill in the shoes of Mary Louise Wright (Perry's mother) in season 2. 

"Is this real life? Is this really happening?" Witherspoon recalled to Seth Meyers about Streep's addition to the cast. "And then I got off the phone with Nicole and I, like, hugged myself gently for a minute and said, ‘This is really happening. You're really working with Meryl Streep.'" 

Directed by Andrea Arnold, Big Little Lies 2 has not been slated yer, but the premiere is expected around 2019.
