Few shows on TV may boast with stable indicators. However, in the case of The Affair, the figures played the critical role which eventually affected the decision on renewal. Thus, on January 9, 2017, Showtime announced that the network had picked up The Affair for the next season.

Frankly, we haven't been surprised by this news. But as for the release date for Season 4, we had no idea when the premiere might happen. Generally speaking, we expected the debut of the new season of The Affair this fall. Nonetheless, Showtime has shifted this event for the summer. As a result, The Affair Season 4 premieres on Sunday, June 17, 2018, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Indeed, the show was steady in the ratings. The third season's premiere has garnered 0.6 million viewers with a 0.2 rating/share (P18-49). Though this figure was lower compared to the same of the 2nd season premiere, it was higher in comparison with the show's Pilot. The season finale has drawn 0.725 million viewers (0.22 key demo). So in general, The Affair showcased a solid dynamics.

The recent season was a success regarding reception by critics and viewers. According to Rotten Tomatoes, The Affair Season 3 had a score of 7.67/10/79% among critics and 3.8/5/72% among the viewers, respectively. We observe almost the same statistics on Metacritic, 72/100, 6.5/10 (critics/viewers). Looking at these figures, we had no reasons to worry concerning the renewal.
