What’s This TV Show About?
An FX espionage drama, The Americans stars Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati, Noah Emmerich, Lev Gorn, Costa Ronin, and Brandon J. Dirden. The story centers on Soviet secret agents Elizabeth (Russell) and Philip Jennings (Rhys), who entered into their KGB-arranged marriage for the sake of the job, but somewhere along the way, fell in love. As season six kicks off, their neighbor, FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Emmerich), still has not discovered their true identities, yet he and his former partner, Agent Dennis Aderholt (Dirden), remain their biggest threat. With Reagan in the Oval Office and Gorbachev in power in the Soviet Union, the times, they are a-changing. Meanwhile, Oleg Burov (Ronin) is back in action, and Philip and Elizabeth could end up on opposite sides.
