The list of "Big Little Lies" cast members -- returners and newbies alike -- continues to grow.

With several Season 1 stars already locked down, the cast still wasn't complete. Six more actors have now reached deals for Season 2, Variety reports. Among them are Kathryn Newton, Sarah Sokolovic, Robin Weigert, and Merrin Dungey, all of whom had roles in the first season of the hit HBO drama series. Additionally, Crystal Fox and Moe McRae are joining "Big Little Lies" for the first time.

The four returning actors will all reprise their roles, with Newton and Sokolvic reportedly being promoted to series regulars in Season 2. Newton comes back as Abigail Carlson, the oldest daughter of Madeline Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), while Sokolvic again plays Tori Bachman, whose husband became romantically entangled with Madeline. Weigert and Dungey will continue to recur as Dr. Amanda Reisman and Detective Adrienne Quinlan, respectively.

Fox joins as a regular, taking on the role of Elizabeth Howard, mother of Bonnie Carlson (Zoe Kravitz), according to Newsweek. Meanwhile, McRae will reportedly play a teacher named Michael Perkins. They're in good company as actors new to "Big Little Lies"; Meryl Streep has come on board to play another mother, that of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgard).

The return of numerous stars was already announced. The upcoming season will again follow the characters played by Witherspoon, Kravitz, Nicole Kidman (Celeste Wright), Shailene Woodley (Jane Chapman), Laura Dern (Renata Klein), Adam Scott (Ed Mackenzie), Iain Armitage (Ziggy Chapman), Jeffrey Nordling (Gordon Klein), and James Tupper (Nathan Carlson).

"Big Little Lies" Season 2 is expected to bring us more secrets in 2019.
