Tv Season Info

It's 1987, and the Center in USSR is split into two factions: one for supporting Gorbachev and the other for overthrowing him. The Jennings are similarly divided, with Elizabeth (Keri Russell) actively taking cases from her KGB handler Claudia (Margo Martindale) to foil Gorbachev's summit with Reagan and Philip (Matthew Rhys) making attempts at living a normal life. Additionally, Elizabeth has begun training their daughter Paige (Holly Taylor) as a Soviet agent. Things take a sudden turn when Elizabeth learns the truth about her missions from Claudia, and the Jennings are faced with a decision that can change their lives forever. The sixth season of "The Americans" also stars Brandon J. Dirden as FBI Agent Dennis Aderholt, Noah Emmerich as FBI Agent Stan Beeman, Costa Ronin as former KGB officer Oleg Burov, and Keidrich Sellati as Henry Jennings.

This season really does resonate a lot with today... And it's wonderful ground, and the episodes are really interesting.

The Americans, like its protagonists, has been in disguise, a searching psychological drama dressed up as a kicky action play.

How The Americans resolves their fates will be key to whether this series is remembered as a superbly rendered morality tale or a distinct disappointment after setting its bar so high.

If you've fallen away from the series because you miss the process-y spy stuff, be advised that it's back with a vengeance, here in the home stretch. Yes, the show's about issues of trust and support, but it's still got a serious body count.
