As spies for Soviet Russia, Philip and Elizabeth Jennings have spent years trying to undermine Reagan-era America from the inside, and now their great game is coming to a close. The latest teaser for the final season of The Americans, which jumps ahead three years to 1987, indicates how much things have changed on the show.
The brief collage of clips is set to Elizabeth (Keri Russell) talking about a successful mission — but at the end of the teaser, it’s revealed she’s not talking to Philip (Matthew Rhys) at all, but rather to their daughter, Paige (Holly Taylor), now wearing her own spy disguise. Like mother, like daughter.
Bringing Paige along on her spying missions represents a dream come true for Elizabeth, as The Americans executive producer Joe Weisberg recently told EW.
“This is what Elizabeth has wanted for a long time, and it’s finally happening,” Weisberg said. “She’s getting to bring her kid along and go out and work with her sometimes and do things with her. She sometimes makes mistakes and that’s a little worrisome, but other times Paige really does well and is successful and that feels great.”
Watch the teaser above. The Americans season 6 premieres March 28 on FX.
