In the exclusive new preview for the drama, which also stars Joshua Jackson and Maura Tierney, an ominous voiceover warns that everything happens for a reason and there are no such things as accidents.
This could be particularly alarming as one scene shows Wilson’s character Allison sitting in an interrogation room in front of a detective. Something bad is definitely going to happen as a result of her affair with West’s character Noah, though the new teaser only hints at rising tensions and potential fallout.
The show is written by Sarah Treem from a story she created with Hagai Levi, with whom she worked on the American adaption of “In Treatment.” They will serve as executive producers, along with executive director Jeffrey Reiner and Eric Overmyer.
Fiona Apple recorded a brand new song, “Container,” which plays over the show’s opening credits.
“The Affair” will premiere on Sunday, Oct. 12 at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.
