What’s This TV Show About?
A 1980s Russian spy drama airing on the FX cable channel, The Americans stars Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati, Noah Emmerich, Lev Gorn, Costa Ronin, and Brandon J. Dirden. This TV series revolves around the lives and secret work of Elizabeth (Russell) and Philip Jennings (Rhys) — two Soviet KGB officers posing as a married American couple in the Washington, DC suburbs. Since teen daughter Paige (Taylor) learned of their true identies, it has been even harder for these spies to maintain their cover. As a result, their family’s safety will grow even more tenuous in season five. With the Cold War raging, expect paranoia on both sides to reach new heights, making Philip and Elizabeth’s work increasingly vital – and even more perilous.
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of The Americans averaged a 0.19 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 758,000 viewers. Compared to season four, that’s down by 28% in the demo and down by 17% in viewership. Find out how The Americans stacks up against other FX TV shows.
Talk about a tummy tease! Although FX renewed The Americans through a sixth and final season, I must wait so long to dine upon it. I will still keep an eye on the ratings, in case this series really tanks, but honestly, I’m not expecting an impromptu snack. Because The Americans is a series loaded with spin-off potential, fans may want to track the numbers along with me. If the numbers pick up in season five and season six, that will increase the chances of a sequel series. Subscribe to this page for The Americans cancellation and renewal news.
