The network announced Tuesday that Noah is getting a new love interest on the show in the form of French actress Irene Jacob, who is joining the drama for a season-long arc. She'll play Juliette Le Gall, a woman who's "running from her own secrets" when she becomes involved with Noah.
In the Season 2 finale, Noah was still with Alison, but gave a false murder confession in court in order to protect his ex-wife Helen (Maura Tierney). There's no word yet on how Noah will cross paths with Le Gall, but Juliette "helps [Noah] process a trauma from his past and understand himself a little better," according to the casting notice.
The Affair returns Sunday, Nov. 20 at 10/9c on Showtime.
