At the TCA winter press tour, it was announced that The Affair TV show has been renewed for a fourth season on Showtime. The third season’s finale airs this Sunday.Showtime has not said that season four will be the end for The Affair however, co-creator Sarah Treem recently said that there’s a four year plan for the series.
Here’s the press announcement:
THE AFFAIR will be back for a fourth season! The third season finale will air on Sunday, January 29th at 10pm ET/PT.
THE AFFAIR stars Golden Globenominee Dominic West, Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson, Emmy Award nominee Maura Tierney and Screen Actors Guild nominee Joshua Jackson.
THE AFFAIR explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together, as told through multiple perspectives. Season three picked up three years after Noah’s (West) shocking admission of guilt at the murder trial of Scott Lockhart. Noah attempts to restart his life, but the damage wrought by his past decisions has made him a ghost of his former self. Alison (Wilson) has been raising daughter Joanie alongside Cole (Jackson) and Luisa (Catalina Sandino Moreno) in Montauk, but Alison’s past continues to rear its ugly head as Cole and Luisa attempt to build their own future. For Helen (Tierney), life appears to continue on, but just below the surface of a successful business and a bustling home lies uncertainty with her boyfriend Vik (Omar Metwally), instability amongst her children, and an unshakeable feeling of guilt.
In season three, BAFTA winner Irene Jacob joined the cast providing the series’ fifth perspective, playing Juliette Le Gall, a new love interest of Noah’s, running from her own secrets, who helps him process a trauma from his past and understand himself a little better. Season three guest stars include Jennifer Esposito and Brendan Fraser.
