The Affair renewed for a fifth and final season at Showtime
Gary Levine, President of Programming at Showtime Networks, Inc, said: “We love the intimacy, the nuance and the emotional honesty of The Affair’s subjective examination of both infidelity and fidelity. Sarah Treem has always envisioned this as a five-season series, and we will be fascinated to see where she takes her talented cast and all of us next year in its climactic season.”
The Affair stars Golden Globe nominee Dominic West, Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson, Emmy Award nominee, and Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Joshua Jackson. Guest stars include Sanaa Lathan, Ramon Rodriguez, Russell Hornsby, Christopher Meyer, Amy Irving, and Phoebe Tonkin.
The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. Season four finds Noah (West), Helen (Tierney), Alison (Wilson) and Cole (Jackson) in their own orbits, alienated from each other, spinning further and further away from where they all began. Every character is involved in a new relationship, forcing them even to decide if they’re ready and willing to leave the past behind for good – with a season about new beginnings, tragic ends and the ever-elusive possibility of forgiveness.
Writers Guild Award-winning playwright and writer/producer Sarah Treem (House of Cards, In Treatment) and Hagai Levi (In Treatment) created the series. Treem, also the showrunner, and Levi serve as executive producers. Jessica Rhoades is an executive producer on season four.
Season four of The Affair is currently airing on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, with the finale set to air on August 19.
