Posted by March 28, 2018 Comment

FX’s cold war spy thriller series The Americans returns tonight for the premiere of their 6th and final season (*sobs). It’s been a hell of a ride for the Russian couple- raising two children, balancing their relationship and missions, and trying to change their world by preventing the Americans from launching numerous deadly attacks back home.

The series has remained at the top of it’s game, stars Keri Russell and her real life partner Matthew Rhys are spellbinding in every single episode, and you root for them when you probably shouldn’t.

The official synopsis for season 6’s first episode, titled “Dead Hand”, reads:

“A major arms-control summit looms in the autumn of 1987; Elizabeth is pushed to her limits as never before; at the newly expanded travel agency, Philip encounters an unexpected visitor with a disquieting request.”
