Big Little Lies, one of the best TV shows in 2017, a show that brought many awards to Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard, will get a new addition in the second season: Meryl Streep.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Meryl Streep’s character will be named Mary Louise Wright. She will take care of her grand kids after the death of Perry ( Alexander Skarsgard ), the husband of the character played by Nicole Kidman.
Some sources quoted by Variety.com say that Meryl Streep ( the actress with the most Oscar nominations in History ) will get a salary of $800,000 for every episode she stars in. It is not clear how this sum gets compared to the salary other leading actresses of the show get.
Last season, both Reese Witherspoon as well as Nicole Kidman had a salary of between $250,000 and $350,000 per episode but this season the salary of the leading actresses might get bumped to $1 million per episode.
Big Little Lies season 2 will start filming in March and the new season is scheduled to be aired in 2019. Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley are also expected to resume their roles.
