HBO dropped a whole mess of premiere date news during the Television Critics Association press tour Friday, announcing “Big Little Lies” will return for Season 2 this June, and the final season of “Veep” will debut this March.
While the cable network didn’t give an official date for the launch of “BLL’s” next batch of episodes, it did set the Julia Louis-Dreyfus comedy’s final run start for March 31.
Here’s the official description for “Big Little Lies” Season 2: On the surface, in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, everything seems the same. The mothers continue to dote, the husbands support, the children remain adorable and the houses are just as beautiful. But the night of the school fundraiser changed all that, leaving the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” – Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie – bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.
Along with the “Veep” and “BLL” news, HBO also revealed that its upcoming Jared Harris-led miniseries “Chernobyl” will start in May, Fred Armisen and Lorne Michaels’ Spanish-language comedy series “Los Espookys” will debut in June, documentary series “The Case Against Adnan Syed” will premiere March 10 and the documentary “The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley” will air March 19.
The premium cable network also announced the Michael Jackson doc, “Leaving Neverland” — which it acquired at Sundance — will debut March 3 and 4.
