Season 2 of Big Little Lies wrapped up after seven episodes. With Season 3’s future still uncertain, it’s great that there are other shows on TV that are just as engaging. Below we’ve compiled other similarly-themed programmes you might want to binge on after that eventful Season 2 finale.
The Affair (Sky Atlantic, Now TV)
As the title strongly implies, The Affair explores the psychological ramifications of an extramarital relationship between Alison (Ruth Wilson) and Noah (Dominic West). Alison’s relationship with her husband Cole (Joshua Jackson) has been shaky following the tragic death of their child while in contrast, Noah’s marriage to Helen (Maura Tierney), stands on solid ground. Together, they discover an escape from an exhausting reality. Interestingly, the story of their affair is depicted from each one’s perspectives, creating memory bias and frequently resulting in different scenarios. Stream seasons 1-4 of The Affair available on Sky Atlantic and Now TV.
Sharp Objects (Sky Atlantic, Now TV)
In her first significant role on television, Amy Adams stars as reporter Camille Preaker. She returns to her hometown to investigate the disappearance of two girls, one of whom was found dead and presumed murdered. As she probes into the case and searches for clues, she reunites with her estranged family — her mother Adora, stepfather Alan, and half-sister Amma. Ultimately, being with her family reignites childhood trauma, including the death of her younger sister. As she gets closer to the truth about the missing girls, she realises it’s all too familiar than she’d like to admit. Watch the complete episodes of Sharp Objects available for streaming on Sky Atlantic and Now TV.
Marcella (ITV Hub)
Anna Friel stars as former detective Marcella Backland. She returns to work for the first time after her husband of 15 years abruptly leaves her and sends their two children to a boarding school. Regaining her post as detective sergeant, she investigates an open case from 11 years ago, which involves an unknown serial killer who’s believed to be killing again. Working to solve the case and struggling with her family life, she starts to experience blackout episodes that make her question her actions – believing she may be involved in the murder of the woman her husband has been having an affair with. Find out how this resolves — catch the previous episodes of Marcella available for streaming on ITV Hub.
