I’m a little bit surprised to hear The Affair has been renewed for a fifth season, but at least it is the last.
I’m struggling with Season 4, with so many ‘off-centre’ perspectives and moves from the East to the West Coast that have made it turn very trippy.
“We love the intimacy, the nuance and the emotional honesty of The Affair‘s subjective examination of both infidelity and fidelity,” Gary Levine, Showtime president of programming, said in a statement. “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.”
Creator Sarah Treem tweeted, “I was on a panel recently with a few showrunners and somebody asked about planning for the end of a series. We looked around and realized that none of us had actually ever done that. It’s a privilege to get to end a show on your own terms. I’m so grateful to @Showtime.”
Season 4 is currently screening 9:30pm Tuesdays on Showcase.
