The Americans is described as 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. Rhys and Russell play Philip and Elizabeth Jennings, KGB Directorate S illegals in an arranged marriage that grows more passionate and genuine as it is constantly tested by the escalationTA_120524_0170(1) of the Cold War and the dangerous relationships they must maintain with a network of spies.

Complicating their covert situation further is Philip’s growing sense of affinity for the American way of life, plus the arrival of a new neighbor, Stan Beeman (White Collar‘s Noah Emmerich), an FBI agent whose beat is tracking foreign agents on U.S. soil — including Russian spies posing as Americans. Well that’s an unfortunate coinky-dink.

FX recently announced that its acclaimed drama Justified will return for Season 4 on Tuesday, Jan. 8.
