The three-time Oscar winner will play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgård), who comes to Monterey “concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren.” Her character is also apparently on a “search for answers” about her son’s death, but from the looks of the photo above, she’s got to do some quality iPad-watching in her jammies before she can get any sleuthing done.
This is the second sneak peek of the award-winning HBO series’ next season to be posted to Instagram. In March, Reese Witherspoon posted a picture of her character, Madeline, and Renata (Laura Dern) hanging out in front of Seaside Coffee Shop. It was unclear what their characters were doing, but fingers crossed that they were possibly plotting how to cover up a MURDER.
Streep will join returning stars Witherspoon, Dern, Kidman (Celeste Wright), Shailene Woodley (Jane Chapman), Zoë Kravitz (Bonnie Carlson) and Adam Scott (Ed Mackenzie) for Season 2.
