Showtime announced today that The Affair Season 5 will wrap up the series. The series explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. The announcement was made today by Gary Levine, President of Programming, Showtime Networks Inc.
“We love the intimacy, the nuance and the emotional honesty of The Affair’s subjective examination of both infidelity and fidelity,” Levine said. “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.”
Season four 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.
New episodes are airing on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT until the Season 4 finale on August 19th!
