Danger, disillusionment and betrayal reach an all-time high in the suspense-laden fifth season of The Americans, which has landed at the top of critics’ lists as “The Best Show on Television” all five seasons. KGB agents Philip and Elizabeth Jennings’ (Emmy nominees Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) unwavering dedication to their work comes at even more of a personal cost than before. And as Paige (Holly Taylor) is drawn deeper into the reality of her parents’ secret job, she realizes she will never have a normal life. Meanwhile, as Cold War tensions continue to escalate, Philip and Elizabeth are suspicious of Stan’s (Noah Emmerich) new romance, and they become more acutely aware of the vast disparity between American abundance and Russian scarcity.
