TV show description:
This period drama takes place in the early 1980s, shortly after Ronald Reagan was elected President.

Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) are a pair of KGB spies who live in a suburb of Washington DC. They are married and have two children — 13-year-old Paige (Holly Taylor) and 10-year-old Henry (Keidrich Sellati) — who have no idea about their parents’ secret identities.

Philip and Elizabeth are in an arranged marriage but it’s become more passionate and genuine as time has passed. Their relationship however is constantly tested — by the escalation of the Cold War and the relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control.

Complicating their relationship even further is Philip’s growing sense of affinity for America’s values and way of life.

Tensions also heighten upon the arrival of a new neighbor, Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), an FBI agent. Stan and his partner, Agent Chris Amador (Maximiliano Hern├índez), are members of a new division of Counterintelligence that’s tasked with fighting against foreign agents on US soil — including KGB Directorate S illegals (Russian spies posing as Americans).

I love the Americans. Please bring it back and soon. I’m watching for the new season for 2014-2015.

Love this show-bring it back SOON!!!

Please renew “The Americans”. Why must it take so long to bring a series back after they’ve gone on ‘hiatus’? Not just this one, but Justified, Longmire, Walking Dead, and so many more. It’s just so frustrating.

I love this show! I thought it was one of the best I’ve seen in a long time, well written and very well acted. Please tell me it will return for the fall 2014 lineup!!!!!

I think ” Americans” is top drawer. The stories are amazingly well written and well cast. It not only explores basic questions about honesty and love, but also explores the issues surrounding sex, sacrifice, ideals, and freedom. Oh yeah, and it’s a spy thriller to boot.

Good show. I look forward to a continued look into the lives of “The Americans”.

good to go?

I thought the season ended and I was crying – This show has intrigue and cold war history and terrific acting. It is a great show. I don’t know how accurate it is – or hate to think our Americans were so “dumb,” but it’s a great story and kudos to writer, actors, etc. Don’t cancel it – do more publicity.

Love this show! Think Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are excellent. I want this show to continue! In spite of lack of technology at the time (no cell phones, no internet) this series packs a wallop!

I have watched other series on FX and consider it an alternate network, I will be sadly disappointed if this gripping series is canceled before its time!
