The sixth and final season of The Americans will receive its UK premiere on ITV4 on Wednesday April 4th at 10pm, it has been announced.
Created by Joe Weisberg, The Americans revolves around two KGB sleeper agents in 1980s America. The drama series is produced by FX Productions & Fox 21 Television Studios and stars Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati and Noah Emmerich. The executive producers are Joe Weisberg, Joel Fields, Graham Yost, Chris Long, Stephen Schiff, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.
In the show’s final season, the Jennings struggle to maintain a smokescreen of normalcy, especially around their son, Henry (Keidrich Sellati), who remains blissfully ignorant of the spies in his midst. Their neighbor and Philip’s best friend, FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), has also yet to discover their true identities. Although he’s transferred divisions, Stan remains their greatest threat since his friend and former partner, Agent Dennis Aderholt (Brandon J. Dirden), leads the force tasked with uncovering the Soviet Illegals hiding in plain sight. With Gorbachev in power in the Soviet Union, the winds of change are sweeping through both Russia and America, creating new perils. A growing rift within the KGB draws disillusioned former officer Oleg Burov (Costa Ronin) back into the fray, and may set Philip and Elizabeth on opposing sides as the Cold War reaches its boiling point.
