The Affair show co-creator and executive producer Sarah Treem thinks one more season could be perfect to end the show.
Treem discusses the future of the show during her appearance at Variety’s podcast Remote Controlled. She says she thinks The Affair Season 4 would be a perfect time to conclude the show.
The Affair is currently on its third season. In 2015, TV Series Finale reports Treem said she only planned for three seasons but not discounting the possibility of a fourth one. So far, Showtime has yet to renew the show for its fourth season.
The Affair big boss says she hopes to get a chance to do Season 4. “I see a fourth season that will bring all the characters back together in a way that would feel really satisfying and surprising and end a journey,” she tells Variety’s podcast show.
What fans could expect in The Affairs Season 3?
Treem also reveals what viewers could look forward this season. She teases that Season 3 finale might be happening in Paris.
The showrunner reveals she had pitched to Showtime the idea of heading to France for the show’s finale. She says the network’s executives first thought she is not serious about it. “I don’t know if they thought I was serious for a while. But I think a lot of it comes down to money at the end of the day, and weirdly enough, it turned out to be cheaper to shoot in Paris,” she says while laughing.
She further teases that there’s something about Paris that feels right for the story this season. Treem adds Allison (Ruth Wilson) will end up with a strong sense of self in the final episodes.
The TV drama follows the life of two troubled married people and the effects of an extramarital affair in their life. Dominic West plays the role of Allison’s partner Noah. The cast also includes Maura Tierney, Joshua Jackson, Julia Goldani Telles, Jake Siciliano, and more.
Showtime’s The Affair airs every Sunday at 10p ET/PT on Showtime.
