Global smash hit The Undoing delivers record-breaking audiences in Australia

The most watched show on BINGE

#1 drama of 2020 on FOXTEL eclipsing 2017’s HBO hit Big Little Lies

Australian audience numbers snowballing week on week

Global smash hit thriller The Undoing, starring Academy-Award® winner Nicole Kidman and BAFTA winner Hugh Grant, has rivetted Australian audiences throughout its suspenseful six episodes, achieving record-breaking viewing figures on BINGE and FOXTEL.

The addictive six-part series has attracted widespread acclaim from both critics and viewers, with The Sunday Telegraph describing it as “a perfect puzzle” and The Sydney Morning Herald calling it a series “where screenwriter David E. Kelley’s brilliance comes to the fore.”

The Undoing is now the most watched show on BINGE, drawing the largest daily audience for any series since the streaming service launched in May, with audience figures snowballing week on week.

On FOXTEL, The Undoing has already surpassed audience figures for the worldwide hit series Big Little Lies in 2017, achieving +34% above the record-breaking season one. The series has also surpassed audience numbers for other hugely popular HBO titles on FOXTEL including The Outsider, True Detective, Watchmen and Westworld.

The Undoing currently ranks as the number one drama to date on FOXTEL for 2020, with a weekly cumulative audience to date of 497,000 viewers across Linear and On Demand platforms.

The gripping six-part series attracted unprecedented audience engagement, with audience numbers exploding week-by-week over the course of the six episodes – culminating in a highly-anticipated finale watched by a captive audience around the globe. The Undoing is one of just a handful of premium dramas to increase its audience each premiere day.

The psychological drama, written and produced by David E. Kelley and directed by Susanne Bier, follows Grace Fraser (Kidman), a successful New York City therapist, and her husband Jonathan (Grant). Overnight, a chasm opens in their lives: a violent death, a missing spouse and a suspicious affair.

The series has also attracted outstanding audience numbers worldwide, with the finale drawing three million viewers in the US across all HBO platforms. The Undoing is also the first HBO series in the network’s history to grow week-to-week over the course of six episodes.

On Sky Atlantic in the UK, The Undoing launched with an audience of almost three million, surpassing the launch of Game of Thrones in 2011. The series is on track to becoming the biggest US series to ever launch on Sky Atlantic.

All six episodes of The Undoing are available to stream on BINGE and watch on demand on FOXTEL.
