Big Little Lies was one of the biggest shows of 2017. 

It was bursting at the seams with shocking twists, stellar writing and outstanding performances from all of the cast members. 

When Big Little Lies Season 2 was confirmed, many speculated who would and wouldn't be returning for the highly anticipated follow-up.

Despite much of her storyline being wrapped up on Big Little Lies Season 1 Episode 7, it seems that murder bonds people together for life.

TV Line has confirmed that Woodley will be back for another season of twists and turns. It's still unclear at this stage whether Iain Armitage who played her son Ziggy will appear. 

Armitage is busy with his series regular duties on The Big Bang Theory spinoff, Young Sheldon, so there's a good chance he will not be back.

The ladies will be facing the repercussions of the murder, and with Mery Streep on board as Perry's mother, they should probably watch their backs. 

In addition to the exciting casting news, HBO has revealed some teases for the key characters.
