Showtime has issued a fourth season pick-up to drama “The Affair” before the third season finale, which airs on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 10 p.m. ET. “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 (Dominic 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 (Ruth Wilson) has been raising daughter Joanie alongside Cole (Joshua 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.
Sarah Treem (“House of Cards,” “In Treatment”) and Hagai Levi (“In Treatment”) created the series. Treem serves as executive producer, along with Jeffrey Reiner (“Friday Night Lights”).
