The HBO drama is all about a group of women with a violent secret and has a murderer's row of talent, including: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Zoë Kravitz, Laura Dern and new cast addition Meryl Streep. All that talent and the high quality of Season 1 has led to loads of enthusiasm surrounding the new season.
Plus, the Season 1 finale (then thought of the be the series finale) aired on April 2, 2017, which means it has been more than two years since fans got a new episode.

On Sunday, many fans took to Twitter to talk about their anticipation for the second season, which is expected to run seven episodes, and cited this long wait as one of the main reasons expectations are so high.
Others took the opportunity to reflect on the show's first season, which quickly became a staple of the HBO catalog. Fans reflected on key moments of the series and the overall achievement
Sisterhood, Womanhood, Girlfriends, Moms. Women sticking together and Women supporting Women. What a cool thing to see. This world needs more shows Iike #BigLittleLies and I can’t freaking wait for Season 2. pic.twitter.com/hZruie93XA— Fitri Rizki Sugianto (@doubleqiew) June 9, 2019
Final thoughts on #BigLittleLies season 1, as soon as the petty rich girl mom stuff ended, the show was fantastic. Hard for me to think of a show with a first episode I have liked less ending so well. Can't wait for season 2.— Cooper Wilson (@coopwwilson) June 9, 2019
In light of #BigLittleLies returning tonight, I just wanted to look back at the season 1 finale, "You Get What You Need," to reiterate what a masterpiece it is. I will never forget those final 15 minutes - they are utter perfection. The show is a masterclass in everything. pic.twitter.com/vPUI7FZCiL— Luca Giliberti (@LucaLeonardo99) June 9, 2019
