Returning: The Americans

The fifth season of The Americans begins on Showcase next month.

This premiered in the US in March.

A sixth and final season is due in 2018.

In the final season, the arranged marriage of Philip and Elizabeth Jennings grows more passionate and genuine in the midst of the escalating Cold War. Paige’s budding romance with Matthew, the son of their neighbour, FBI Agent Stan Beeman, further complicates matters since Stan – Philip’s best friend – remains the greatest threat to the Jennings’ safety.

Thursdays from May 11 at 9.30pm on Showcase.



  1. One of those underwhelming series, on the face of it anyway but one that dragged me in! Enjoyed it and looking forward to see how they end it all.

  2. From Wikipedia, think there is a sixth Series

    On May 25, 2016, FX set an end-date for the series by renewing it for a fifth and sixth season. The 13-episode fifth season premiered on March 7, 2017.[4] It will be followed by a 10-episode sixth and final season in 2018.[5]
