So many Showtime TV shows have been down in the ratings year-to-year but season two of The Affair performed better than the first season. Will the ratings continue to climb? Will the show be renewed for a fourth season or, will The Affair be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
The Affair follows the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship between two troubled married people — a New York City schoolteacher/novelist and a young waitress.

The show features the talents of Dominic West, Maura Tierney, Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson, Julia Goldani Telles, Jake Siciliano, Jadon Sand, Abigail Dylan Harrison, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Omar Metwally, and Irène Jacob.
