It was big news for the Monterey Area when HBO’s award winning original series, Big Little Lies was renewed for a second season. The impressive cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley who returned to film in the bayside county with season two’s addition of Oscar Award Winner, Meryl Streep. The show revolves around several mothers who struggle to take care of their families during a very dramatic and trying time of their lives. Season one filmed in many recognizable scenes for CSUMB students. The Monterey Bay Aquarium, Lovers Point in Pacific Grove and Fisherman’s Wharf are just a few of the sights in season one. Some of the locations that the stars and their film crew have already been spotted in are Del Monte Beach and Lovers Point. Season one captured audiences with breath-taking views and dramatic scenes. There is a lot of anticipation surrounding what season two will entail. Who knows, maybe even an otter will make a cameo.
