Streep plays mother-in-law to Kidman's Celeste, whose abusive husband died at the end of season one.

Kidman told TV critics Friday that the pleasure of making the drama and the demand from the audience contributed to the decision to bring it back.

David E. Kelley, who wrote the first and second seasons, said "Big Little Lies" probably won't continue.

A smiling Witherspoon reminded Kelley that's what he said after season one.
