The second season of the highly anticipated award-winning HBO Original drama series “Big Little Lies” and a brand new HBO Original mini-series “Chernobyl” will premiere exclusively on HBO in June and May respectively.

 Premiering in June, the seven-episode second season of “Big Little Lies” is set in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California. The night of the school fundraiser changed that peaceful life, leaving the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” – Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie – bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. The series explores the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. 

Created by David E Kelley and based on the novel by Liane Moriarty, the series stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Zoe Kravitz alongside new cast member Meryl Streep.

“Chernobyl” dramatises the story of the 1986 nuclear accident, one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history, and of the brave men and women who made incredible sacrifices to save Europe from unimaginable disaster. Starring Emmy nominee Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard and Oscar nominee Emily Watson, the five-part mini-series debuts in May.
