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.”? I would be terrilbly upset if it is not renewed for another season. If May 2, 2013 is episode is the season finale, I conclude that because of the cliff hangers, “The Americans” wioo return. I can’t wait. I hope Phillip goes home.

    I can’t believe good shows actually exist anymore! This show should stay and receive ratings like the show Lost… Please keep this show going

    Please don’t can this show my sister turned me on to the Americans. This series is fresh and has a great story line. We must understand that in the 80 these things where going on and still are. This is a kick ass show and to cancell now would be so sad for me and lots of fans. There is nothing like this on tv right now and I’m sick and tired of reality tv.

    Fantastic show, I am enjoying the entertainment value of it. Would like more State Department seduction and FBI/CIA spotting and recruitment challenges on the show and don’t forget the music and horror hair of that era.
