The Americans returns for a new series on RTÉ Two. Elizabeth comes back from her injury and straight into what should have been a routine mission - but it goes awry, leaving her and Philip in fear not only for themselves but for their whole network... and family.
The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) have two children - 14-year-old Paige (Holly Taylor) and 11-year-old Henry (Keidrich Sellati) - who know nothing about their parents' true identity.
Philip and Elizabeth's arranged marriage grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War and the intimate, dangerous and darkly funny relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control.
