There was a hell of a lot of excitement when it was announced that the one and only Meryl Streep was joining the cast of Big Little Lies for its second season, and now the first photo of her on set has been revealed.

***WARNING: spoilers below if you haven't seen season 1!***



Streep plays Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgard) who played Nicole Kidman's abusive husband and who is revealed to have died during season one (although he is expected to return 'in some capacity' during season two). His mother arrives in Monterey seeking answers for his death.

Kidman shared the picture on Instagram yesterday, which you can see below now:
