Showtime has debuted a brand new look at the second season of the hit drama The Affair, which we have for you below…
The Affair stars Dominic West (The Wire), Ruth Wilson (Luther), Maura Tierney (E.R.) and Joshua Jackson (Dawson’s Creek), with season two exploring “the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together.”
In a change to the first season, the second will see the story told from four perspectives rather than the original two, which will reveal “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 former wife Helen (Tierney) is attempting to piece her life together while navigating divorce proceedings, care for her children, and her parents’ noxious influence. Joshua Jackson plays Cole, Alison’s former husband struggling to overcome past heartbreak and start a promising new life. Yet the long-term ramifications of the affair continue to shape these lives, and will lead to an event that changes everything once again.
