Last season despite some very low ratings, Showtime renewed The Affair for a second season. The numbers grew over the course of the season and the drama hit a new high in its season finale. Will the ratings continue to climb or will they fall? Will the show be cancelled or renewed for a third season? 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 story is told separately, through different people’s perspectives and biased memories. The show stars Dominic West, Maura Tierney, Ruth Wilson, and Joshua Jackson.
