The original Scener ur ett äktenskap mini-series won multiple awards and has inspired filmmakers for decades. Will this modern version from HBO come to a close after five episodes (like the original) or, could the story continue on in some way? Could Scenes from a Marriage be renewed for a second season, with a new story and/or cast? Stay tuned.
A drama series written and directed by Hagai Levi, the Scenes from a Marriage TV show is based on the 1973 Swedish mini-series by Ingmar Bergman. This version stars Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain with Sunita Mani, Nicole Beharie, Corey Stoll, and Tovah Feldshuh in supporting roles. A re-examination of the dilemmas probed by the original, the series explores love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage, and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple. Mira (Chastain) is a confident, ambitious tech executive left unfulfilled by her marriage while Jonathan (Isaac) is a cerebral and accommodating philosophy professor who is desperate to keep their relationship intact.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Note: These are the final national ratings, including all live+same day viewing and DVR playback (through 3:00 AM). Early fast affiliate ratings (estimates) are indicated with an “*”. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.
