Golden Globe Award-winning drama series The Affair stars Dominic West (The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Luther), as well as Maura Tierney (ER) and Joshua Jackson (Fringe).
Season 2 explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. The provocative drama is told separately from four different perspectives, revealing four distinct truths.
Wilson plays Alison, a young woman attempting to move on from tragedy and build a lasting relationship while contending with the judgment of others and her own self-doubt.
Her lover Noah (West) is a burgeoning writer trying to balance the temptations of success, the family he left behind, and the woman he loves.
Noah's estranged wife Helen (Tierney) is navigating divorce proceedings while caring for her children, and avoiding her parents' noxious influence.
Jackson plays Cole, Alison's former husband who is struggling to overcome past heartbreak and start a promising new life.
The long-term ramifications of the affair continue to shape these lives, and will lead to an event that changes everything once again.
Award-winning playwright and writer/producer Sarah Treem (House of Cards, In Treatment) and Hagai Levi (In Treatment) created the series. Treem serves as executive producer, along with Levi, Anya Epstein (In Treatment) and director Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights).
Season 2 premiered on M-Net Edge on Wednesday 7 October 2015, at 20h30. Thereafter new episodes broadcast weekly at 21h00.
