HBO hit series Big Little Lies has dropped pretty major hints about what to expect from its highly awaited second season.

The show, which ended with the dramatic demise of Celeste's (Nicole Kidman) violent husband Perry, will now see the five friends from Monterey deal with the rumours of their involvement in his death. It doesn't help that Perry's mother is in town to investigate and believes that the 'Monterey 5' are somehow responsible.

Watch the teaser here:

The original cast, consisting of Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Zoe Kravitz, returns in the second season and are joined by another heavyweight Meryl Streep who plays Perry's mother.

Both Kidman and Witherspoon are executive producing the show with David E. Kelly, and the series will be directed by Andrea Arnold instead of Jean-Marc Vallée, who helmed the first season.

The second season of Big Little Lies will premiere on June 9.
