Kidman hints Big Little Lies S2 wrapped

Nicole Kidman has hinted she has finished filming on the second series of Big Little Lies.

The actress, who has won a slew of awards for her portrayal of battered wife Celeste in the hit show, shared a photograph on Instagram of herself in Monterey, California, where the hit HBO series show is filmed.

She captioned the post: "It's been an absolute joy to film in #Monterey.

"So sad to leave but thank you for the warmth and hospitality. #BigLittleLies."

Meryl Streep will join the cast for the second series, which also stars Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz.

Earlier this month Witherspoon shared a photograph of herself, Streep, Kidman and Woodley enjoying a night out bowling.

Streep will play Kidman's mother-in-law, who will arrive in Monterey after the death of her son at the end of the first series.

Witherspoon appears to still be in Monterey, and on Friday shared a video of her son Tennessee at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The second series is likely to air in 2019.
