All good things must come to and end.
Showtime has renewed its Golden Globe® Award winning drama series The Affair for a fifth and final season.
Season four of the series is currently airing on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, with the finale airing on August 19. 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.”
The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together.
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.
