We’re loving all things Big Little Lies right now, from the stellar cast (um Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman on the same show? Yes please.) to the incredible storyline. We’re not the only ones who are a little obsessed, with the show receiving an 8.6/10 on IMDb and sitting at 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.
The story follows three troubled mothers in Monterey, California whose kids all go to the same school. As they each deal with their own traumas and struggles they become tangled up in a murder investigation that each episode will have you guessing, ‘who did it?’.
To celebrate the launch of season two, Now TV invited us along to a fun event at White City House where we got to try out the exercise class taught by Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) in the show, Nia. Short for non-impact-aerobics, Nia is a sensory-based workout that can be done by people of all ages and fitness levels, working on your body, mind and spirit. The class has us all jumping around, spinning and laughing for a good 45-minutes as we moved to each of the tracks, a great way to prepare ourselves to watch the first episode of season two.
The best way to finish any workout is with some delicious snacks, and that’s exactly what we did. From tuna tartare to salmon poke bowls and beautiful trays of healthy canapes, we rewarded our bodies after the Nia workout with lots of nourishing little bites.
Soon it was time for a preview of SEASON TWO, and we settled in on plush armchairs with a glass of green juice to watch episode one. For those of you that haven’t seen the trailer yet, none other than MERYL STREEP has joined the already incredible cast, playing Celeste’s mother-in-law. Without giving too much away, season two picks up just after the dramatic events of season one’s finale, as another school year in Monterey begins.
To catch up on season one or tune into season two from June 10, Big Little Lies is available on Now TV with their Entertainment Pass.
