"Overnight a chasm opens in Grace's life," reads the logline, "a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only 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 herself."

The move will keep Grant on the small screen following his role on Amazon's A Very English Scandal.

While the series is billed as a limited series, Big Little Lies was billed as the same when it launched, and it was later picked up for a sophomore run. 

That sophomore run is slated to debut in early 2019 with all of the lead cast returning, and the addition of Meryl Streep.

Having two powerhouses like Kidman and Grant sharing the screen is certainly intriguing. With HBO thriving with original content, it will likely continue to do so with the addition of The Undoing.
