Meryl Streep has officially joined Big Little Lies Season 2, and her character is going to be a doozy.

According to Deadline, Streep will play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of the dearly departed Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). Concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry's death, Mary Louise arrives in Monterey searching for answers.

Who wants to bet she suspects foul play?

Paired with the fact that Detective Quinlan (Merrin Dungey) didn't seem to buy the story that Perry's death was an accident, we can probably expect the mothers of Monterey to face the very real possibility that their crime -- if you can even call pushing an abusive rapist down the stairs a crime -- will come out and expose their lies.

Really though, we just have to keep our fingers crossed for a few kick-down, drag out fights between Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman. Can you even imagine?

Big Little Lies Season 1 is currently streaming on HBO Now.
