The Americans

Season 3 | Cast |

Programming note: We have only covered the first three seasons of The Americans. So far, anyway. If you'd like to review the rest of the series for us, here's how.

Developed by Graham Yost (Justified) and Joe Weisberg (former CIA), The Americans is about Russian sleeper agents in the early 1980s. They speak English, they buy cowboy boots, they worry their daughter is growing up too fast – and they've committed themselves to protecting the motherland and defeating America and its capitalist ideology. More or less. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys star in this excellent character study/spy thriller.
