Showtime’s upcoming drama The Affair is about, well, an affair, but not just any affair: In the show’s latest trailer, Ruth Wilson’s Alison and Dominic West’s Noah speak to a detective about a supposed accident, hinting there’s a lot more to the story.

The series starts off with the happily married Noah meeting Alison, also married (to Joshua Jackson’s Cole) but seemingly not as happily, at a restaurant where he’s dining with his family—wife (Maura Tierney) and four children included. Things escalate quickly when Noah sneaks out of his in-laws’ beachfront home to meet Alison and begin their summer fling.

The first season will be told from the perspectives of both Alison and Noah, allowing viewers to see both sides of the story and the inconsistencies that come along with the two different tellings. Friday Night Lights’ Jeffrey Reiner is directing and also executive producing, along with House of Cards’ Sarah Treem, who penned the script, and Hagai Levi, who co-created the story the script is based on.

The Affair premieres Oct. 19 at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.
