The Emmy-winning drama, with Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon as executive producers as well as part of the lead cast, had said that they expected most of the cast to return.

Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz were announced to be on board when the show announced its return for a second season, followed by the surprise announcement of Streep joining the show as Kidman’s mother-in-law Mary Louise Wright who arrives in Monterey after her son’s scandalous death. Scott is the latest returning cast member to be confirmed now.

The show is written by David E Kelley and is based on a book by Liane Moriarty. Andrea Arnold, the director of the critically acclaimed American Honey, will direct the latest season.

HBO has not announced a broadcast date for the second season and gave little details of the plot.
