A new six-part limited series, The Undoing, is set to premier on Oct 26 at 9am, HBO announced today (Aug 7). New episodes premiere every Monday at the same time.
Based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s novel You Should Have Known, the series is bolstered by a star-studded cast and creative crew. It’s directed by Emmy, Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning director Susanne Bier (“The Night Manager”) and written by the renowned David E Kelley, who also serves as showrunner. It stars Hollywood heavyweights Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.
The Undoing tells the stories of Grace (Kidman) and Jonathan Fraser (Grant), who are living the only lives they ever wanted for themselves. 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 and her family.
The Undoing also stars Edgar Ramirez (Emmy nominee for “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace” and “Carlos”) as Detective Joe Mendoza; Noah Jupe (“Honey Boy” and “A Quiet Place 2”) as Henry Fraser, Jonathan and Grace’s precocious and artistic 12-year-old son; Lily Rabe (“American Horror Story”) as Sylvia Steinetz; Noma Dumezweni (“Black Earth Rising”) as Haley Fitzgerald; Sofie Gråbøl (HBO’s “Gentleman Jack,” “Fortitude”) as Catherine Stamper; Matilda De Angelis as Elena Alves; Ismael Cruz Córdova (“Berlin Station”) as Fernando Alves; 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.
