"Im excited and honoured to continue collaborating with HBO and David E Kelly", said Kidman in a statement.

The team from Big Little Lies will reunite to tell a story about the lies people tell themselves.

Appearing on Late Night With Seth Myers last Thursday, Big Little Lies co-star and co-producer Reese Witherspoon revealed the pair, along with new cast member Meryl Streep, would be starting filming their second series this week.

Kelley and Kidman will both serve as executive producers, with Kelley writing the whole season, though an episode total has yet to be determined.

The Undoing is searching for a director. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster - and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice - Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself. Even worse, Grace is about to publish a self-help book called, you guessed it, You Should Have Known, written specifically to chastise women who lie to themselves about their husband's flaws.

HBO is re-teaming three of the driving forces behind "Big Little Lies" for the its next big miniseries.

Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz's novel You Should Have Known, the show will star Kidman as Grace Sachs, a successful New York City therapist whose life seems picture-perfect: A first book on its way, a devoted husband, and a young son in an elite Manhattan private school.

Kidman won an Emmy for her performance in Big Little Lies.

Kelley is repped by CAA and Michael Gendler; Blossom Films is with CAA and Alan Werthheimer; Papandrea is with WME.
