Tv Season Info

It's 1987, and the Center in USSR is split into two factions: one for supporting Gorbachev and the other for overthrowing him. The Jennings are similarly divided, with Elizabeth (Keri Russell) actively taking cases from her KGB handler Claudia (Margo Martindale) to foil Gorbachev's summit with Reagan and Philip (Matthew Rhys) making attempts at living a normal life. Additionally, Elizabeth has begun training their daughter Paige (Holly Taylor) as a Soviet agent. Things take a sudden turn when Elizabeth learns the truth about her missions from Claudia, and the Jennings are faced with a decision that can change their lives forever. The sixth season of "The Americans" also stars Brandon J. Dirden as FBI Agent Dennis Aderholt, Noah Emmerich as FBI Agent Stan Beeman, Costa Ronin as former KGB officer Oleg Burov, and Keidrich Sellati as Henry Jennings.

The Americans, like its protagonists, has been in disguise, a searching psychological drama dressed up as a kicky action play.

This terrific series promises to end with a triumphant bang - don't miss it.

How The Americans resolves their fates will be key to whether this series is remembered as a superbly rendered morality tale or a distinct disappointment after setting its bar so high.

If you've fallen away from the series because you miss the process-y spy stuff, be advised that it's back with a vengeance, here in the home stretch. Yes, the show's about issues of trust and support, but it's still got a serious body count.

The Americans will always be one of the greatest television shows ever but...[the] series finale was not one of its greatest moments.

In The Americans, music is text: harmony is an illusion and as the Crowded House song goes, "there's a battle ahead" that threatens to "build a wall" between the Jennings. [Full Review in Spanish]

In this final season, the stakes are raised with a piling body count. Let's just say this is one show which finishes stronger than it started.

This FX drama delivers an unforgettable ending in this final set of episodes.

Nov 24, 2018 | Rating: 4.0/4 | Full Review…

As fans themselves echo the chorus of "Don't Dream It's Over" as the show nears its finale, we should still feel lucky to have gotten six seasons of this truly special series.
