In the finale of The Undoing series, the dark truth behind the murder of Elena Alves was at last revealed, seemingly bringing this gripping thriller to a definitive end, but the show has surprised us before.
Some fans wonder if it might do so again by expanding from a limited series to a continuing drama, in very much the same way as the previous collaboration of Nicole Kidman and David E Kelley, Big Little Lies.
The prolific showrunner even himself refused to rule out the slight possibility of the future episodes in a recent interview but did admit that he was also “satisfied” with how the first season of the series concluded.
Nevertheless, a recent social media platform, Instagram post from star Nicole Kidman, has stoked up yet even more speculation of a follow-up. Strong viewership will undoubtedly help move such a project along.
The Undoing is on track to be the biggest ever launch for a United States drama on Sky Atlantic, impressively beating out the competition from the likes of fantasy epic Game of Thrones and comic book drama Watchmen.
At the moment, it is uncertain whether The Undoing will make a return for the second season, despite its commercial and critical success.
The first season of the series is a complete adaptation of the novel. You Should Have Known by Jean Hanff Korelitz, meaning there is no source material to base a follow-up.
That is not necessarily a deal-breaker, but it should be noted that HBO has billed The Undoing as a limited series, i.e., it intended to run for only one season, which suggests that they are not currently considering a second run.

However, the same was right of Big Little Lies when it first premiered, and that show went on to secure a season two renewal, with a third one also rumored to be on the way, so never say never.
Nicole Kidman sparked speculation of a follow-up in a recent post, where she thanked the cast and crew of The Undoing, adding: “Greatly looking forward to working with all of you again.”
Fans took to the comments to ask whether that was a hint that they would be reuniting for a second season, but there’s no confirmation just yet.
Assuming the focus would remain on the Fraser family, we could also see Donald Sutherland and Noah Jupe’s return, as grandfather Franklin and teenage son Henry respectively.
