HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (March 23, 2017) – New deceptions come to the surface in the shocking new season of the addictive, acclaimed series, THE AFFAIR.
Starring Dominic West (“The Wire”), Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson (“Luther”), Golden Globe winner Maura Tierney (“ER”) and Screen Actors Guild Awards
® nominee Joshua Jackson (Fringe), the tantalizing new collection of the SHOWTIME original series THE AFFAIR: SEASON THREE arrives on DVD April 25 from SHOWTIME Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.

The new “juicy season” (Entertainment Weekly) of THE AFFAIR picks up three years after Noah’s (West) shocking admission of guilt at the murder trial of Scott Lockhart. Noah attempts to restart his life, but the damage wrought by his past decisions has made him a ghost of his former self.  Alison (Wilson) has been raising daughter Joanie alongside Cole (Jackson) and Luisa (Catalina Sandino Moreno, Maria Full Of Grace) in Montauk, but Alison’s past continues to resurface as Cole and Luisa try to build their own future. For Helen (Tierney), life appears to continue on, but just below the surface of a successful business and a bustling home lies uncertainty with her boyfriend Vik (Omar Metwally, Rendition), instability amongst her children, and an unshakeable feeling of guilt. With an unexpected turn of events, Noah, Alison, Helen and Cole are drawn even further into the web of danger and deceit.

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 Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights).

T HE AFFAIR: SEASON THREE DVD is a four-disc collection that includes all 10 episodes of the third season. Special features include an in-depth interview with the series co-creator, Storytelling with Sarah Treem, discussing the themes of the latest episodes. Playing Both Sides highlights the main cast as they explore the nature of playing characters from multiple perspectives.
