Thanks to “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Big Little Lies,” Elisabeth Moss and Nicole Kidman are enjoying a killer year. Now they get to unite for the second season of “Top of the Lake,” the mystery series that Moss headlined in 2013.
The first trailer for “Top of the Lake: China Girl” is here, and it features Moss’ Detective Robin Griffin investigating an alarming death in Sydney, Australia. Meanwhile, Robin has reconnected with the daughter she gave up (Alice Englert), who’s adoptive mother is played by a gray-haired Kidman. (This project reunites Kidman with “Portrait of a Lady” director Jane Campion, who co-created the show.) Oh, and “Game of Thrones” standout Gwendoline Christie is on hand as a fellow detective and friend to Robin.
“Top of the Lake: China Girl” premieres on SundanceTV and Hulu in September. This year’s Emmys and next year’s Emmys will be lit.
