Phoebe Waller-Bridge can seemingly do no wrong these days. After conquering the world with Fleabag and Killing Eve, the British writer, actor and producer is back with Run, a comedy thriller about a couple of old college lovers who decide to meet at Grand Central Station and travel across America.
Run Season 1 TV Preview
When Ruby and Billy were lovers at college they made a pact. If either of them texts the word “run”, and the other replies with the same word, they will drop everything, meet at Grand Central Station to travel across the United States!
Well, 17 years after that pact, it is finally being put to the test, and what unfolds is a wonderfully clever, at times very odd series of events that will have binge watchers happily glued to their TV screens.
Starring Merritt Wever (Unbelievable), Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina) and directed by Aussie Kate Dennis, the much anticipated Run TV series is about to arrive in Australia and using the information in this guide you won’t have to miss a key moment.

Must See TV for fans of Run
Run Season 1 consists of eight episodes and looks set to be a hit with audiences around the world and create great storylines. Once you have caught up on the latest episodes, we have suggested a few series below that may also take your fancy until the next one arrives.
Lucky Flynn is a bit of a family outcast, but when he learns that his mother is ill he takes a trip across the Nullabor in his old trusty pick-up, with nothing but an old piano in the back. When he picks up Meg (Milly Alcock) she is cold and defensive, but after a while, they start to strike a close friendship and find they have more than a few things in common. Upright Season 1 is now available to stream on demand with Foxtel, or with Foxtel Now, which currently has a free 10 day trial.
Breeders (Foxtel / BINGE)
Paul and Ally always had the ideal relationship, loved up, perfect jobs, laughter… That was until the kids came along! Now Paul can’t control his rage every time his children make a sound, and his ambitions of becoming a full time writer have stuttered to a halt. And it’s not just the couple’s own relationship that is suffering, their own parents are also starting to question their techniques. Breeders Season 1 is now available to stream on demand with Foxtel, or with Foxtel Now, which currently has a free 10 day trial.
High Maintenance (Foxtel / BINGE)
The great thing about High Maintenance is that it does away with the conventional restrictions you would associates with a modern series. We don’t know the name of the main protagonist, and each new episode has an entirely new set of characters. What’s more, episodes are short and punchy at only 30 minutes, meaning you’re always kept on your toes as a viewer. And the most important thing of all? It’s very funny and light hearted. High Maintenance Season 4 is now available to stream on demand with Foxtel, or with Foxtel Now, which currently has a free 10 day trial.
