What is the story about?
The Undoing tells us about Grace Fraser. She has a successful career as a therapist and on top of that, she is also very close to publishing her own book. She has an almost perfect life with her devoted husband and a bright young son, who attends one of those elite private schools in New York. Just when things seem blissful, her life takes a different turn. She has to deal with violent death and her missing husband just weeks before her book’s release. Grace has to manage situations where she has ignored her sound judgment. The show revolves around her as she tries to create a new life after the old one collapses.
When will it release?
The show was supposed to release on 10th May of this year but that did not happen. Coronavirus pandemic led to the push back to the release date to this fall. The season will have six episodes in total. Viewers will just have to kill time till the new series shows us the undoing of an idyllic life.
