It's finally here guys! We are 15 days away from the premiere of the final season of FX's hit series The Americans. This season looks jam packed with action, intrigue, and hopefully, answers. The show stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as Elizabeth and Philip Jennings, who are deep undercover Russian spies in Ronald Reagan-era 1980's America. This show is so fantastic. It really gives us a different look at what was going on in the end of the Cold-War era. Here's a rundown on what's been happening on the show:
After a particularly fraught mission, Philip and Elizabeth decide to end their tour and take their family home to Russia. However, a game-changing development in one of their ongoing cases forces them to abandon those plans for the sake of the motherland. Now, Paige delves deeper into the family business, even as Philip takes a step back from it. The Jennings struggle to maintain a smokescreen of normalcy, especially around their son, Henry (Keidrich Sellati), who remains blissfully ignorant of the spies in his midst.
Their neighbor and Philip’s best friend, FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), has also yet to discover their true identities. Although he’s transferred divisions, Stan remains their greatest threat since his friend and former partner, Agent Dennis Aderholt (Brandon J. Dirden), leads the force tasked with uncovering the Soviet Illegals hiding in plain sight. With Gorbachev in power in the Soviet Union, the winds of change are sweeping through both Russia and America, creating new perils. A growing rift within the KGB draws disillusioned former officer Oleg Burov (Costa Ronin) back into the fray, and may set Philip and Elizabeth on opposing sides.
Enjoy the trailer if you're all caught up, and if you're not, you've got two weeks! The Americans final season will only have 10 episodes. It's set to premiere on FX on March 28, 2018.
