The announcement for The Affair Season 5 brought mixed feelings among the fans. On the one hand, we got a confirmation for a new season of The Affair, and that’s always great for the fans, but on the other hand, we found out that The Affair Season 5 will be the last outing for the cast.
“We love the intimacy, the nuance, and the emotional honesty of The Affair’s subjective examination of both infidelity and fidelity. said Gary Levine, President of Programming Showtime Networks. “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.”
These last four years have been filled with ups and downs for the series. When the show began, you heard nothing but positive things about it. It even managed to win a Golden Globe award in the best drama category. But, things were different as we moved forward and the story just became a bit bland. Season 4 of the show was a massive improvement on the past two seasons, and we know now that the show will be back for its final season soon.
We don’t know when precisely The Affair Season 5 will return, but it is likely going to be in the second half of 2019. The Affair usually airs in fall, and I think we’ll get the upcoming season around September or October.
The fifth and final season will have a total of 10 episodes, and it will feature the aftermath of season 4 finale’s horrific events and find the characters coming to the consequences with their choices. The final season of the show is about how everything falls apart in the end, but despite all that, the seed of change finally sprout.

We are waiting for official details about the next season, but nothing is coming out except what we have already discussed above. The progress is not yet made public, nor the shooting related details are coming out. Hence, it makes way more challenging to understand when will the show return with the final season. We do know that Anna Paquin will be joining the cast in the last season, as it was announced earlier. Also, we will see Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson, Catalina Sandino Moreno, and Omar Metwally supposed to leave the show.
However, we are still sticking with the second half of 2019 anticipation which we did earlier, as it seems the most accurate anticipation considering the details we have. But we will be updating the article with the latest details and will keep you posted with further news about the fifth and final season on OtakuKart.

While the fans are waiting for more details about the show, it is pointless to do so as there is nothing more actually coming out. However, we know one thing, the shooting for the fifth season has almost completed. However, it is a surprise that the show is not coming out anytime soon, even though we are already about to complete May 2019.
Showtime has not uttered a word related to the show, and it is not in their initial Summer 2019 list. Which means, the show might be slipped to Fall 2019 schedule. I am not sure about it, as they can even have a late summer update. But the silence over the show is bothering me a lot. Additionally, Ruth Wilson (Allison) is not on the display anymore.
