Well, it looks like The Affair is almost over. After four scandalous and riveting seasons, Showtime has decided to renew the Golden Globe-winning drama for a fifth and final season, which will air sometime next summer. The series is currently airing its fourth season on the network with the season finale airing on August 19th.

[Exec producer] 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,” Gary Levine, Showtime’s President of Programming, said in a statement.

Starring a talented quartet ensemble of Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Maura Tierney, and Joshua Jackson, The Affair, which is set amongst the gorgeous landscape of Montauk, has followed the romantic drama of two couples who lives are uprooted when two of them embark on an affair that changes them all forever.
The series has won three Golden Globes, including Best Drama in 2016, Best Drama Actress for Ruth Wilson in 2015 and Best Drama Supporting Actress for Maura Tierney in 2016. Tierney also received the only Primetime Emmy nomination for the series in 2016.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
