This week we learned the biggest news of our generation: Meryl Streep will be joining the hotly anticipated second season of Our Holy Bible, Big Little Lies. Which, to be clear, means that we will soon get to see Meryl, Reese Witherspoon, and Nicole Kidman on the same screen. And if we're really lucky, Laura Dern could be there too. And Zoë Kravitz. And Shailene Woodley. It's almost too much to bear.

Meryl will be playing (SPOILER AHEAD) the late Perry's mother, who's flocked to Monterey to look after her newly fatherless grandchildren, per Variety's report. Naturally, we couldn't help but speculate who else might join the award-sweeping series for its second iteration. So, we came up with a few ideas to present to the world:

Viola Davis...

As an undercover detective hired by Streep to find out what really happened to her son. We all know Meryl wouldn't trust those SoCal cops to get the job done.

Kathryn Hahn...

As Celeste/ Nicole's best friend from college, who's come to town to comfort her old sorority sister following the tragedy. Naturally she has a drinking problem and too much money from her shark of a lawyer wife, played by...

Robin Wright...

You heard us. Ms. Wright comes to the town begrudgingly to support her wife's old friend, but quickly becomes embroiled in the drama when she takes up Celeste's case, after Streep files a for custody of the boys.

Timothée Chalamet...

As Hahn and Wright's teen son, who ends up starting at Monterey High when his mothers decide to remain in town to help defend Celeste. Of course, he nabs the lead role in the spring musical, which is being directed this season by Madeline/ Reese. You guessed it — the two enter into a torrid, forbidden affair, complicated by the fact that Chalamet is also hooking up with Madeline's older daughter, Abigail.

And, of course, Tiffany Haddish...

...As the teacher of Chloe, Ziggy, and Amabella's new second grade class. And, naturally, she quickly picks out Chloe as her favorite and begins to help her apply for songwriting summer fellowships after school. When Madeline finds out, she complains that Chloe is too young to be thinking about such things. And so more secrets ensue.
