Maura Tierney, Nicolette Robinson, Ruth Wilson

The Affair, Season 1, Episode 7: “7″

With the interrogation wrapping up, last week’s episode revealed a surprising secret about the Lockharts, bringing with it the end of the affair between Noah and Alison, a fact that was evident in both their narratives. This week sees the summer come to an end, and with it the Solloways’ time in Montauk. With the return to Brooklyn, however, comes the reveal of the affair to both Helen and Cole, and both of them react in different ways that is bound to inform the course of both marriages, in another compelling episode.

As the season has progressed, Noah’s true involvement in the affair has become clearer and clearer, as he has been unable to hide his guilt. This is most starkly evident »

Showtime Sets Thanksgiving Weekend Marathons of ‘Homeland,’ ‘The Affair’

24 November 2014 1:36 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime is looking to capitalize on the momentum of “Homeland” and “The Affair” by scheduling back-to-back marathons of the shows during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

On Nov. 29, the cabler will rerun the nine episodes that have aired so far in “Homeland’s” fourth season. The seven episodes of “The Affair,” starring Dominic West and Ruth Wilson, will rerun the following day.

“Homeland” is enjoying a resurgence this season, after taking a critical drubbing last year. “Affair” has been one of the best-reviewed freshman series of the year.

Both Sunday dramas will sit out Nov. 30 for original episodes because of the holiday weekend. New episodes return on Dec. 7, with the season finales of both shows set for Dec. 21.

Luther Will Return To The BBC In 2015

20 November 2014 3:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been quite a time for fans of the BBC psychological crime drama series, Luther. Just a day after the announcement of a U.S re-imagining of the show by Fox, series creator Neil Cross has dropped the bombshell that many have wished for ever since the last season ended in 2013. Idris Elba is returning to the role, in the UK, in 2015 – for two new episodes written by Cross himself.

The show proved to be an almost instant success when it first aired in 2010 with a six episode series. Centred around Detective Chief Inspector John Luther, it introduced audiences to an iconic character who was at once a highly intelligent and dedicated investigator, while being constantly on the brink of succumbing to his own dangerous passions. His obsessive devotion to fighting the darker elements swirling beneath the surface of life in London belies his own internal struggle against being »

Elba Returns For "Luther" Mini-Series

19 November 2014 10:33 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The BBC used a special event in London this week to announce a slew of new drama programming that it has planned for 2015 including a bunch of limited series.

The most notable of the announcements is that the original "Luther" is returning next year for an "event special" on BBC One. Idris Elba will reprise the role for the two hourlong episodes which begin filming March ahead of an airing late in 2015.

The news comes just a day or so after word came that U.S. network Fox has ordered a pilot for a remake of the British detective drama, news that has since met with a strong backlash in various comments and forums.

Creator Neil Cross is behind the two new installments which are rumored to be the precursor to an eventual "Luther" movie. No word as yet as to whether actress Ruth Wilson, currently starring in Showtime's "The Affair, »

‘Luther’ to get American adaptation on Fox

19 November 2014 6:33 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Black British Batman is hopping the pond. Fox has ordered a pilot of Luther to be written by Neil Cross, the original series’ creator. John Luther himself, Idris Elba, will serve as executive producer. Luther ran for three seasons on BBC, a Sherlock-like murder detective who befriends a psychopath named Alice (Ruth Wilson) while capturing violent and dangerous criminals.

Fans are hesitant to celebrate due  to network TV’s track record with British remakes. NBC’s Prime Suspect was a dud, and Gracepoint, a remake of Broadchurch, has not been the success Fox hoped.

If you haven’t seen the original, watch it now on Netflix on your upcoming holiday break. Give thanks to that handsome brooding man. Relive the classics like hiding a gun in a dead dog, or letting a sniper know where to shoot while locked in a big mac container with a violent arsonist.

The Affair, Ep. 1.06: “6″ reveals more about the Lockharts

18 November 2014 5:12 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ruth Wilson

The Affair, Season 1, Episode 6: “6″

Written by Dan LeFranc

Directed by Carl Franklin

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

While Noah and Alison’s recounting of the summer’s events differed in previous weeks, it was unclear if the discrepancies stemmed from a hazy memory, an obfuscation of the truth due to the police interrogation, or both. However, with the detective dismissing both individuals at the end of last week’s episode, one possible reason was waved goodbye, allowing for a more truthful recounting of what happened in Montauk. The removal of the detective leads to a major revelation about the Lockhart family in this week’s episode, in another compelling outing that provides further insight into what drives both Noah and Cole.

Noah’s change in opinion about Alison this week adds an interesting layer to his attraction. While early episodes have made it clear that Noah pursued Alison more aggressively, »

Ruth Wilson ('The Affair') hopes for second chance at Golden Globes party [Exclusive Video]

18 November 2014 2:10 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Ruth Wilson is a potential Golden Globes contender for her performance as a married woman who becomes involved with a married man (Dominic West) in Showtime's "The Affair," but even though the actress has been nominated before – for the TV miniseries "Jane Eyre" in 2007 – she never got to attend the event. She explained in our recent video chat, "It was the writers' strike, so I had to watch the results on the news, which was a bit disappointing." -Break- Golden Globes: Top 10 Most Shocking Upsets Ever But she came to Los Angeles anyway, "just in case," and she remembers the city being a virtual ghost town after the cancellation of the Globes.

Luther Remake In The Works At Fox

18 November 2014 11:51 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Proving that it learned absolutely nothing from Gracepoint, its inferior and low-rated remake of the terrific ITV miniseries Broadchurch, Fox is developing an American remake of the BBC crime drama Luther. To help with the project, Fox has brought in original creator Neil Cross to write and star Idris Elba to exec-produce.

Now, Luther is one of my favorite television series of all time, so I’m not going to pretend to be impartial here – there is absolutely no reason to remake Luther for American audiences, especially with the original series readily available on Netflix. American remakes are almost always inferior to the series they’re based upon, and Luther in particular is a show that worked so well only because of a highly specific mixture that no American remake will be able to recreate. Early news about the remake indicates that Elba won’t reprise his role, which is »

A Luther Remake Is in the Works at Fox for Some Reason

18 November 2014 10:01 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

For some reason Fox is remaking Luther. Yes, the hit Emmy-nominated BBC series starring Idris Elba. According to reports, the network has given a put-pilot commitment to Luther, the crime drama from the U.K. that follows Detective John Luther (Elba). Neil Cross, the show's creator, is on board to write and executive produce the new Fox version. Producers include 20th Century Fox Television, Chernin Entertainment and BBC Worldwide Producers. Elba is also attached to executive produce, but not reprise his Emmy-nominated role. He's won a Golden Globe for the series, which ran for three seasons and 14 episodes. The show, which also starred The Affair's Ruth Wilson, is currently available on »

American Remake Of BBC’s Luther In The Works At Fox

18 November 2014 9:52 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Fox, having learned nothing from its Gracepoint/Broadchurch experiment, is developing a remake of the BBC crime series Luther.  Like Gracepoint/Broadchurch, Fox has hired Luther's original creator, Neil Cross, to assist in the making of the American version, which will exist because …?  There's really not a sound reason to remake Luther, especially since the original is readily available for U.S. audiences via Netflix (it also ran on BBC America).  Hit the jump for the who and the what of this remake. According to Variety, Idris Elba, star of the original series, will serve as an executive producer, but not appear in the American version.  This is a huge problem.  Luther is Elba.  Remove his performance, and Luther becomes more a run-of-the-mill Sherlock-inspired weekly-psycho series (in which Single White Females Living Alone are always targeted and brutally killed).  It was Elba's interactions with co-star Ruth Wilson (as the »

Fox Plans U.S. Remake Of "Luther"

18 November 2014 8:03 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite the failure of "Gracepoint," Fox is taking another shot a remaking a successful British series - this time the already finished BBC detective drama "Luther" which starred Idris Elba.

The network has given a put pilot commitment to the project which is being written by series creator Neil Cross. Cross was also behind NBC's short-lived pirate drama "Crossbones" this past Summer.

Elba played Dci John Luther in the dark and emotionally bleak series which followed the dedicated, obsessive and sometimes violent character on the hunt for brutal killers. The show was never really a whodunnit or even a procedural, with the focus primarily on character drama.

It also boasted a strong supporting cast, including Warren Brown's young partner Justin Ripley, Michael Smiley's fellow cop Benny Silver, and Ruth Wilson's murderous prodigy and twisted love interest Alice Morgan.

Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner will executive produce the remake. »

Maura Tierney on The Affair’s Multiple POVs

17 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

 Warning: Spoilers ahead for this week's episode of The Affair.What did she know, and when did she know it? Maura Tierney's character on Showtime's The Affair, Helen Solloway, may still be in the dark about the fling between her husband Noah (Dominic West) and waitress Alison Bailey (Ruth Wilson) — and about his mistress's involvement with cocaine dealing. But the NewsRadio and ER vet tells Vulture she was clued in early by creator Sarah Treem. How much did you know about what was really going on when you started shooting the show? I knew a fair amount. Sarah had the first two seasons pretty well mapped-out in terms of an overall arc. So I knew from the very beginning what happens in episode six and what happens in episode eight, but in terms of exactly how it unfolds, I didn't know. And I didn't want to know. It's kind »

Homeland And The Affair Get Series Renewals From Showtime

11 November 2014 3:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Showtime has staked its claim on the 2015 Sunday nights of TV audiences, by handing series renewals to its two biggest shows – Homeland and The Affair. The dramatic pair is broadcast as a duo on the network – a coupling that has proved highly successful. With the flagship title of Homeland as the espionage-heavy, globe-trotting lead-in, ratings have shown that viewers are then more than happy to stick around for the more intimate The Affair, leading executives to plan a repeat of that scheduling in 2015.

The renewal of Homeland – created by Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa (24) – will take it into its fifth season, and represents an impressive achievement on the part of the show’s creative team. As season three drew to a close at the end of 2013, many doubted the ability of the show to reinvent itself following the devastating conclusion of its biggest storyline, and loss of a lead character. »

The Affair, Ep. 1.05: “5″ exposes trouble in both homes

Ruth Wilson, Dominic West

The Affair, Season 1, Episode 5: “5″

Written by Kate Robin

Directed by Carl Franklin

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

To date, The Affair has focused on what led Alison and Noah to engage in infidelity, as well as what caused them to fall for each other. While early episodes made it clear that Noah’s attraction to Alison outweighed Alison’s attraction to Noah, the past few weeks have begun to show why Alison found herself attracted to Noah specifically. This week’s episode turns the focus back to the individual lives of Alison and Noah, giving the audience a deeper understanding of why the two continue to engage in extramarital relations with each other, in another strong outing for the show that reveals the answers to one of the season’s major mysteries.

While it was clear in previous episodes why Alison began engaging in an affair with Noah, »

Showtime Renews Homeland and The Affair for New Seasons

10 November 2014 2:11 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Showtime has ordered new seasons of two dramas that are currently in the middle of their respective seasons on the network.  The pay cable channel announced today a 12-episode Homeland Season 5 will air on the network in 2015, while a 10-episode second season of the critically acclaimed new series The Affair will also debut next year as well.  Homeland has done a fine job of rebooting itself this year while also injecting plenty of those Homeland-esque twists (last night’s episode was particularly “Wtf”-inducing), and so I’m pleased to here the further adventures of Claire Danes’ CIA agent Carrie Mathison will continue next year. As for The Affair, I haven’t yet watched the show but have been hearing very, very good things—especially from our own Allison Keene.  The drama stars Ruth Wilson, Dominic West, Maura Tierney, and Joshua Jackson and revolves around the devastating effects of an extramarital affair. »

Showtime has renewed Homeland for a fifth season and The Affair for a second season, the network announced today. Homeland has earned another 12 episodes, and The Affair another 10. The Affair will continue to follow Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson) and all the people they're damaging with their respective betrayals, so start envisioning people screaming at each other and/or having intercourse in additional sumptuous beach locations. Maybe that could happen on Homeland, too. »

Showtime Renews ‘The Affair’ and ‘Homeland’

10 November 2014 1:05 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime has ordered a second season of “The Affair” and a fifth season of “Homeland.”

The moves were expected but nonetheless a vote of confidence in the pay cabler’s buzzy freshman drama, and a sign that “Homeland” is back on strong footing after some struggles in its third season.

“Affair” (pictured) has a 10-episode order for 2015. “Homeland,” from 20th Century Fox TV’s Fox 21 unit, is picked up for 12 episodes.

“In its fourth season, ‘Homeland’ has brilliantly reinvented itself. It continues to capture the attention of a devoted fan base, and has provided an enviable platform for the successful launch of ‘The Affair,’ ” said Showtime Networks prexy David Nevins. “With thought-provoking, relevant and addictive storylines, both series have been embraced, dissected and much debated week after week. We’re excited to see more from these complex shows in 2015.”

“Affair” bowed last month to critical raves. Series led by Dominic West, »

Even before therapist and author Esther Perel began working as a consultant on The Affair, her work was influencing the show. "We had actually already read an article wherein Esther was quoted saying something like, 'oftentimes when somebody in a couple cheats, it's not because they're unhappy with their spouse or their partner. They've become unhappy with themselves,'" co-creator Sarah Treem told EW. "We loved that quote, and we had put it up on the board of the writers' room as an inspiration."
