MUMBAI: FX is all geared up to premiere the season one and two of the famous love drama The Affair. The channel will air back to back episodes of the show throughout March till 19 April 2016 at 9 pm.

The show's season 1 explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroys two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together. The extra-marital affair takes place between Noah Solloway and Alison Lockhartwhen they meet in the resort town of Montauk in Long Island. Noah, a New York City schoolteacher and Williams College alum who is struggling to write a second book is happily married with four children, but he resents his dependence on his wealthy father-in-law. Alison, on the other hand, is a young waitress trying to piece her life and marriage back together in the wake of her child's sudden death. The story of the affair is depicted from Noah's and Alison's perspectives respectively, complete with memory bias.

The second season goes a step further as the narrative is expanded to include the perspectives of their respective original spouses, Helen and Cole too as they all move forward with the dissolution of their marriages and deal with the ramifications. The provocative drama is told separately from four different perspectives thus revealing four distinct truths.

While Alison is a young woman attempting to move on from tragedy and build a lasting relationship while contending with the judgment of others and her own self-doubt, her lover Noah is a burgeoning writer trying to balance the temptations of success, the family he left behind, and the woman he loves. Noah's former wife Helen on the other hand is attempting to piece her life together while navigating the divorce proceedings, care for her children, and her parents’ noxious influence while Cole struggles to overcome his past heartbreak and start a promising new life.

The show has won the prestigious Golden Globe award in the best television series – drama category and comprises of a stellar star cast. The star cast includes Dominic West as Noah Solloway, Ruth Wilson as Alison Lockhart, Maura Tierney as Helen Solloway and Joshua Jackson as Cole Lockhart.
