Showtime has announced that after five seasons, The Affair will be coming to an end. The cable network today picked up the acclaimed drama for Season 5, with the news coming in the midst of a fourth-season run that once again has drawn praise from both audiences and critics.

The award-winning series stars Joshua Jackson, Dominic West, Maura Tierney, and Ruth Wilson, and follows the emotional fallout of an extramarital relationship that ripped two marriages apart - and the crime that ends up bringing the involved parties together again.

Look for the fifth and final season of The Affair in 2019. For now, new episodes are currently airing on Sunday nights, with the Season 4 finale slated for August 19.
