The Americans just wrapped its sixth and final season, but is that it? Recently, showrunners Joel Weisberg and Joel Fields discussed the possibility of a spin-off for the FX TV show, Variety reports.
Set during the Cold War, the spy drama centers on Soviet secret agents Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and Philip Jennings (Matthew Rhys), who entered into their KGB-arranged marriage for the sake of the job, but somewhere along the way, fell in love. The cast also includes Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati, Noah Emmerich, Lev Gorn, Costa Ronin, and Brandon J. Dirden.
During a recent screening of The Americans‘ series finale, the question of spin-offs came up. One idea is to follow Paige (Taylor), the daughter of Elizabetha nd Philip, after the events of the finale. However, showrunner Joel Fields says they aren’t interested in continuing the FX series:
I think the story’s told — I think we finished it. We’ll let tonight bring the curtain down.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of The Americans? Would you watch a spin-off series?
