How to watch The Undoing for free in the UK, US and abroad

The Undoing was the most-watched TV show on HBO in 2020. Here’s how to watch or stream it anywhere in the world for free

The Undoing is a six-episode HBO miniseries starring Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland. It is written by David E Kelley who last teamed up with Kidman for the hit HBO series, Big Littles Lies, and all episodes are directed by Suzanne Bier (The Night Manager).

You can now watch the entire series of The Undoing on Sky TV and Now TV Entertainment Pass (free 7-day trial for new customers) in the UK, and HBO in the US. You can access any of the aforementioned streaming services from abroad by using a good VPN service, like ExpressVPN.

Few people know that The Undoing is based on the novel You Should Have Known by Jean Hanff Korelitz. Staying true to the novel, the series intrigues viewers from the very first episode itself, setting the stage for a riveting psychological thriller as we go from a happy rich family to gruesome murder and missing spouse, amidst the imposing backdrop of New York City.

Without revealing much of the plot, we can tell you take Kidman plays Grace Fraser, a successful relationship therapist whose life has recently been turned upside down because of a gruesome murder in which her husband (Grant) is the prime suspect. British child actor Noah Jupe plays their son, while veteran actor Sutherland plays Kidman’s father.

The best part about both HBO (US) and Sky TV (UK) is that their streaming equivalents come with weeklong free trials for new customers, which means that you can stream The Undoing on HBO Max in the US and Now TV Entertainment Pass in the UK for free. Here are all the different ways you can watch The Undoing in the UK, US and abroad.

Sky Atlantic is the best way to watch The Undoing, and other award-winning shows from HBO, including Succession, Watchmen, Big Little Lies, Chernobyl and Game of Thrones.
