The Must List: The Americans is a satisfying slow burn

Posted on

As if the possibility of Russian influence in the realm of American politics couldn’t be relevant enough already, The Americans is headed back to FX for season 5.

The drama, which finds the Jennings family (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) dealing with obstacles from the Russian food crisis to Paige’s love life, snagged a spot on EW’s Must List for the week.

The “addictive drama” that’s been revealing itself in a “satisfying slow burn” was renewed for its final two seasons last year. The sixth and final season will air in 2018.
