The sixth and final season of The Americans with Keri Russell & Matthew Rhys returns to Showcase in a month’s time.
However, this debuts in the US next week, 3 weeks ahead of Australia.
A period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. during the Reagan administration. The arranged marriage of Philip and Elizabeth Jennings grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but as the pressures and demands of the job grow heavier, the personal toll becomes almost too exhausting to bear. Having revealed their true identities to their teenage daughter Paige, Philip and Elizabeth’s ability to protect their cover and their family’s safety deteriorates.
After a particularly fraught mission, Philip and Elizabeth decide to end their tour and take their family home to Russia. However, a game-changing development in one of their ongoing cases forces them to abandon those plans for the sake of the motherland.
Wednesdays from April 18 at 8.30pm on Showcase.
