The highly anticipated second season of HBO's Big Little Lies is set to begin filming again along the Central Coast. 

The star-studded series, based on the best-seller by Liane Moriarty, features big names including Reese Witherspoon as Madeline, Nicole Kidman as Celeste and Shailene Woodley as Jane. This season, Meryl Streep also joins the cast. 

Cast members have already been spotted throughout the area. Witherspoon, Kidman and Woodley were all spotted along the pristine stretch of Lover's Point in Pacific Grove. Filming is expected started Wednesday - and some scenes for season 2 were already shot in Los Angeles. 

KSBW reports crews have constructed a gazebo and pergola in the area for the project.  

Some local products - including Santa Cruz's Verve Coffee - will get some screen time, according to the KSBW report. 

Filming is expected to be underway in the area for about four weeks, according to the Monterey Herald. Details on when the season will officially air have not been released.
