Showtime has released the trailer and key art for the fifth and final season of The Affair, which is set to premiere on the premium cable network on Sunday August 25th. Sky Atlantic yet to announce the UK premiere date.
Created by Sarah Treem & Hagai Levi, The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. The drama series stars Dominic West, Maura Tierney, Sanaa Lathan, Anna Paquin, Julia Goldani Telles and Jadon Sand. Sarah Treem is the showrunner and serves as executive producer alongside Jessica Rhoades, Hagai Levi and Michele Giordono.
The show’s final season will chronicle the aftermath of last season’s horrific events and find the characters coming to terms with the consequences of their choices – as they make the realization that if they really want to change their futures, they must first face the past. Helen begins the season involved in an intoxicating new affair with a charismatic movie star (guest star Claes Bang), who offers to give her everything she’s been missing. Noah meanwhile has to swallow his pride and his jealousy and step in to take care of his family in her absence. But just when things seem to have stabilized, a chance encounter with someone from the distant past sets in a motion a sequence of events that brings them both to their knees.
