Co-starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys,"The Americans" is 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, especially when it comes to protecting their American-born children, Paige and Henry. They also face the risk of discovery by their friend and neighbor FBI agent Stan Beeman, who is tasked with uncovering Soviet illegals hiding in plain sight.
Taking place during one of the Cold War’s hottest years, Season Four brings "The Americans" to a boiling point. Yet it does so without leaning too heavily on its ’83 touchstones: President Reagan’s SDI speech is an occasion for mockery, a nuclear false alarm is pillow talk, the tragedy of South Korea Flight 007 is bypassed by a time jump. The Americans always does good work with the stuff that appears microscopic on the historical scale, but massive on the personal level.
