Gorgeous and gripping, Big Little Lies's second season doubles down on the dark humor and gives its impressive cast even more juicy drama to chew on -- especially an excellent Meryl Streep.

Audience Reviews for Big Little Lies: Season 2

  • Jan 14, 2023
    The message is more powerfull that i can see in a lot years.
  • Oct 22, 2022
    The performances are as strong as last season, but the story loses some of its original ideas by trying to much at once.
  • Aug 27, 2022
    Very well done. An interesting mystery story. A wonderful, high-powered set of acting talent.
  • Aug 15, 2022
    every white mom is addicted to this show and i get it.
  • Jun 19, 2022
    Season 1 was not bad but to have a season where the premise is getting over the trauma of the first season is incredibly lame. No mystery or suspense to this season, just people being over the top emotional every episode. Overall there are way better shows to watch, I wouldn't waste your time here
  • Jan 14, 2022
    Love the emotional continuation of the lives of all 5 women and their families. Meryl Streep's teeth are hilarious!
  • Dec 30, 2021
    Overall, this season is better than the first. There is no murder per se, and so it feels far more believable and therefore even more outrageous toward the end. Meryl Streep is, again, on fire. This should have earned her the golden globe. The let down has to be Zoe Kravitz. Dull and one dimensional. Broody but in a Kristen Stewart in Twilight kind of way.
  • Aug 21, 2021
    Although not as great and impactful as the first season, Big Little Lies still manages to hook in audiences each episode.
  • Mar 24, 2021
    What was interesting and exciting in season 1, now has the feel of a daytime soap opera TV series that even Meryl Streep cannot make it worth watching
  • Mar 17, 2021
    I loved season 2 as well as season 1. Absolutely fabulous TV. A must see! This show will stay with me lor a long time. And Meryl Streep played her role very well. I hated her.
