Reese Witherspoon knows Big Little Lies wouldn’t be complete without Zoë Kravitz!

On Friday, Witherspoon snapped a selfie with Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley — her fellow costars from the acclaimed HBO show.

In the sweet shot which was shared on Twitter, the women all smiled for the camera, while Witherspoon, 43, made a silly face and opened her mouth. Missing from the group, however, was Kravitz, 30 — and it certainly did not go unnoticed.

To ensure her friend did not feel left out during the cute moment, Witherspoon hilariously photoshopped the original snapshot to feature a picture of the actress pouring a bottle of Michelob Ultra beer into a glass above the group’s heads.

The photo of Kravitz was taken from the Super Bowl commercial that she starred in earlier this year.

“Don’t worry @ZoeKravitz, I know you have #fomo so I put you in the photo… #BLL2″ Witherspoon captioned the side-by-side photos.

In the first season of Big Little Lies, which was based on the book of the same name by Liane Moriarty, the show revolved around wealthy mothers in Northern California whose children all attend the same school. The storylines followed their rivalries and relationships — which ended in a death.

In February, HBO executives announced at the Television Critics Association tour that Big Little Lies would return for season 2 this June.

The second season was never supposed to happen, as the first covered Moriarty’s entire book, but show writer David E. Kelley changed his mind after season 1’s success and once Meryl Streep agreed to join the cast for the second installment.

“Last season, we didn’t close the chapter. It ended on a very open note of what’s going to happen next. … What will happen in these relationships?” Kelley said at TCA. “There was a lot of fertile storytelling to mine. Is the storytelling going to be compelling enough to rise to the first year.”

During the panel, Kidman, 51, also explained that a second season was primarily due to the “enormous demand from the audience.”

“We all said goodbye, but we became very close, had such a good time doing it and the desire to spend more time together was a huge part of it, but there was an enormous demand from the audience,” the actress said. “I’ve never been in something that reached so far globally, that was such a compelling idea in terms of putting it together again … but it was generated by the audience.”

“We’re amazed we can be here,” she added of season 2. “I will say not to compare it to the first one… it is its own entity and hopefully, it will be taken in that way. It was definitely made with an enormous amount of love.”

One of the first glimpses of what’s to come in the second season showed the five central characters — Madeline Mackenzie (Witherspoon), Jane Chapman (Woodley), Bonnie Carlson (Kravitz), Celeste Right (Kidman), and Renata Klein (Dern) — standing in what appears to be a police lineup.

All of the women are wearing the same Audrey Hepburn-inspired outfits they were at the end of last season, suggesting that the new season picks up right where things left off.

In another short clip, Streep — who has joined the cast as Celeste’s mother-in-law Mary Louise Wright — seems to have a lot of questions about what became of her son Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). She demands, “I want to know what happened that night.”

Other photos from shooting have gone viral, as well — namely those of Witherspoon throwing an ice cream cone at Streep. In the photo, Streep has her back turned as Witherspoon furiously throws the cold treat through the air at her costar.

Although the show has seen immense success, there are currently no plans for a third season.

Big Little Lies returns to HBO in June 2019.
