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).

    “The Americans” is one of the best shows on TV right now. It’s intelligent, suspenseful and provocative. The actors are incredible! I love Margo Martindale’s character on the show! She has to be one of the best actresses on the planet! With everything that’s going on in Ukraine right now, the show is spot on. Great production on all fronts!

    We came upon this show by accident and became instant fans. Problem is we always discover these gems after they’re done. If there is a chance to keep it going, please do. We will be first to tune in.

    I love this show, watched it every week and always looked forward to the next episode. Please don’t cancel it and bring it back soon!!!

    I love The Americans…can’t wait for new season. It is such an original concept as far as TV series go. I’m so tired of vampire shows, witches, crime series. I do love Grimm, Sleepy Hollow, & Once Upon A Time (but not the spin off of Alice in Wonderland) because I have always loved fairy tales and I am open to all the various reinterpretations.

    I love this series and have followed it faithfully-it is so realistic and the plots riveting. I hope it is brought back for another season because it would be terribly disappointing if it was cancelled with no resolution.
