If there’s an alternate reality where The Affair season 3 doesn’t exist, keep me the hell away from it. Though at times it’s a bit hard to ignore the clunkiness of splitting the narrative between a handful of characters, The Affair is stimulating for all the right reasons… and some of the wrong ones.
On the strength of a standout cast of Ruth Wilson (who won a Golden Globe after season one), Dominic West, Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson, the ratings for the show have steadily increased by nearly a half million viewers since it debuted in October 2015. Critical reception for the show has varied, with some critics struggling to embrace the show’s often dueling narratives. Last season, we attempted to make the case for the show’s direction as its own multiverse.
