HBO has today released a new trailer for the series it is promising will be the year’s biggest thriller, The Undoing.
The highly awaited six-part series, The Undoing will feature homegrown star, Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies) alongside Hugh Grant (A Very English Scandal).
Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s Novel You Should Have Known, The Undoing follows upper-class New York City couple, Grace (Kidman), a successful therapist, and her devoted husband, Jonathan Fraser (Grant), who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves.
However, overnight a chasm opens in their lives: a violent death and a chain of terrible revelations.
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 (Noah Jupe) and her family.
The Undoing is from the award-winning director Susanne Bier (The Night Manager) and the Emmy-winning creator of Big Little Lies, David E. Kelley,
The series brings an all-star cast together for the 2020 thriller that reunites Kidman, also an executive producer on the series, with creator Kelley, who worked together on HBO’s Emmy-winning Big Little Lies (also available to stream on BINGE).
Joining Kidman and Grant is Edgar Ramirez (Emmy nominee for American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace and Carlos) as Detective Joe Mendoza; Ismael Cruz Cordova (Berlin Station) as Fernando Alves; Matilda De Angelis as Elena Alves; Lily Rabe (American Horror Story) as Sylvia Steinetz; Noma Dumezweni (Black Earth Rising) as Haley Fitzgerald; Noah Jupe (Honey Boy and A Quiet Place 2) as Henry Fraser, Jonathan and Grace’s precocious and artistic 12-year-old son; Sofie Gråbøl (HBO’s Gentleman Jack, Fortitude) as Catherine Stamper; and Donald Sutherland (Emmy® winner for Citizen X) as Franklin Reinhardt, Grace’s father, a retired financier and loving grandfather who is tasked with protecting his family when turbulent revelations come to light.
