Little Fires Everywhere, starring Reese Witherspoon, is set to be your new TV obsession

Cathy Donohue

Reese Witherspoon returns to the small screen in the much-anticipated new TV series, Little Fires Everywhere.

Fans of the Big Little Lies star will be delighted to hear that she plays a central role in this new show.

Not only that, Kerry Washington is also a main character and it’s fair to say that we’re buzzing for this to land.

The premise of the plot sounds very juicy and although only the basic details have been shared thus far, we can’t wait.

Here’s what we know so far.

Mia Warren, played by Kerry, takes a job working for Elena (Reese), so far so good, but sparks soon fly as there’s a major personality clash.

Their daughters befriend each other but both women are different in every possible way and things quickly escalate causing major drama.

Oh and get this, Joshua Jackson also features – sounds like the perfect TV treat to us.

This is Kerry’s first series since Scandal and those who followed Olivia Pope’s escapades have been waiting for her to reprise a TV role since.

Little Fires Everywhere is theadaptation of Celeste NG’s 2017 novel and it’s almost guaranteed to be a hit.

The debut series includes eight episodes and is set in an Ohio suburb.

Reese is also an executive producer on the show and her production company Hello Sunshine is behind it, the same Hello Sunshine that brought us Big Little Lies.

It lands in the US on March 18 and here’s hoping it arrives over here soon after.
