Spoilers ahead if you have not finished season one of Big Little Lies.

We finally have our first look at Meryl Streep in Big Little Lies! Streep, who will play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Alexander Skarsgard's late character Perry Wright, in the show's second season, appeared in a photo from set posted to Nicole Kidman's Instagram account.

In the pic, Streep appears alongside her on-screen grandchildren and Kidman, who plays her character's daughter-in-law, Celeste. But don't expect the mother / daughter-in-law relationship to be as cozy as this picture might suggest.

"She deeply loved her son … as much as any mother can love her son," Big Little Liesauthor Liane Moriarty told The Daily Telegraph about Streep's role. "She had a slightly fraught relationship with her daughter-in-law, so it’s a very complicated, difficult time."

Streep's role on the popular HBO series was announced back in December to much excitement from both fans and the show's cast.

"We didn't think we'd get her," Kidman told ET. "It really is her standing up and going, 'I support you as women, and I believe in you," Kidman said. “I think that's a big statement from her."

Kidman's co-star Laura Dern agrees. "It's amazing! When I tell anyone in my life that Meryl Streep is joining us, it's incredible!"
