The first trailer for the fifth and final season of The Affaire is finally here.
Showtime has dropped the first look at its upcoming season of its Golden Globe-winning drama.
Per the premium cabler, Season 5 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.
The clip reveals that despite it all, it might not actually be over for exes Noah (Dominic West) and Helen (Maura Tierney). Let’s just say that with Noah saying “forgiveness is hard,” but that people “yearn for someone who really knows” them and then adding “it’s not too late” there’s still a chance for the couple.
Ruth Wilson, who played Alison, left the show back in Season 4.
Showtime said in a statement, “heading into season 4 everyone agreed the character’s story had run its course. Ultimately, it felt like the most powerful creative decision would be to end Alison’s arc at the moment when she had finally achieved self-empowerment. The impact of her loss will be felt as the series concludes next season. We thank the many fans who embraced the character of Alison and especially thank Ruth for her indelible work over the past four seasons.”
The Affair premieres August 25.
