Big little lies watch

In case you missed it, HBO and Sky Atlantic’s hit show Big Little Lies is back for a second series after the huge success of the first.

Starring the likes of Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern, it follows a group of women with complicated and intertwining lives, and – eventually – a big shared secret between them.


Season two has begun, promising new lies and of course more drama, and in the UK it airs on Mondays at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.

For those who went to get involved with all the goings on (plus the addition of Meryl Streep!) but have yet to see series one, there’s now a way you can catch up for free.


That’s because NOW TV is currently giving customers a free seven-day trial of its entertainment pass, which allows streaming of Big Little Lies season one.

This entire season has followed Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman), Jane (Shailene Woodley), Bonnie (Zöe Kravitz), and Renata (Laura Dern) as they’ve schemed and lied their way out of serving jail time for the murder they committed. But their luck may have just run out. The last episode saw Celeste’s mother-in-law Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) sue for custody in a move that may destroy this house of cards.

Who will learn the truth? Who will get away with their lies? And who will bad mouth Meryl Streep this episode? Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch all the drama.

We’re very excited to return to Monterey in June, especially since Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley and the rest of the gang will now be joined by Meryl Streep for… spoiler-y reasons if you haven’t watched the first season of Big Little Lies yet.

And if you haven’t, or if you have and just want a refresher before heading back into the dramatic thick of it, then we’ve got some very good news for you.

While the first season is currently available on Sky Premiere and NOW TV (which is where you can also check out the upcoming second season when it debuts on Monday 10 June), HBO have added all seven episodes of the first season to YouTube for viewers to enjoy for free.

Watch Big Little Lies Season 1 Episode 1

Series premiere. In the affluent beachfront community of Monterey, CA, a fundraiser for the local elementary school has gone horribly wrong–someone is dead, and school moms Madeline Mackenzie, Celeste Wright, Jane Chapman and Renata Klein may have had something to do with it. Though the victim and perpetrator remain a mystery, it’s clear that the battle lines leading to this fateful night were drawn at first-grade orientation a few weeks earlier, when Renata’s daughter Amabella accuses Ziggy, son of new arrival and single mom Jane, of hurting her during class. Madeline, who recently befriended Jane and who has a pre-existing beef with Renata, sticks up for the mother and her little boy. Later, Madeline bristles when her teen daughter Abigail opines that her mom is still infatuated with her ex, Nathan, and his new wife Bonnie–a feeling shared by Madeline’s husband Ed. Meanwhile, after Madeline’s best friend Celeste fills in her husband Perry about the kerfuffle at school, the couple end up in an unexpectedly volatile argument.
