How Many Episodes Are in 'Big Little Lies' Season 2?

  • Big Little Lies season two premiered on HBO June 9, 2019.
  • Similar to season one, there will only be seven episodes.
  • You can stream the series on HBO Go. Here's how to do it for free.

    If you watched the premiere of Big Little Lies season two last night, you're probably a) going to think about Meryl Streep's scream for the rest of your life, b) contemplate why HBO is scamming us out of those last 15 precious minutes (the episodes are only 45 minutes long), and c) wonder how many episodes we'll get to enjoy the "Monterey five" this season.

    Unfortunately, Big Little Lies season two will only have seven episodes, just like last season. Therefore, its season two finale will take place on July 21, 2019. As for what to expect in each episode, it's a total gamble, but we can get some tiny clues based on their titles. Episode one was called "What Have They Done?" Episode two is titled, "Tell-Tale Hearts," and episode three is called, "The End of the World." No word yet on titles for the last four episodes.

    If you don't have a TV, you can stream both season one and season two on HBO Go. To do this, either sign up for a subscription (it costs $14.99 per month), or submit the login information from a friend or family member's cable provider and watch for free. It doesn't cost them any additional money to give you their login, so they have no excuse not to!

    Episodes are available every Sunday at 9 p.m. EST with no commercials (!), so you can rewind and fast forward at your convenience. Until then, I'll be thinking about that next Emmy Meryl Streep deserves.
