Joshua Jackson is unlikely to return for the final season of 'The Affair'



Joshua Jackson may not be returning for the fifth and final season of The Affair.
Jackson was only contracted for a couple of seasons, but due to his interest in his character’s story line, he continued to sign on for additional seasons as they came.
Jackson is presently in discussions on how they’d wrap up Cole. Whether that’s one episode or more is unknown for now.
