One of the many dilemmas facing fans of “The Americans” is whether or not they want the Jennings to get caught. As Russian spies, they’re instinctually America’s enemies, but as people they’re incredibly relatable. This conflict adds to the tension packed into every episode, but it appears their secret identities are more at risk than ever before in the new season.
The Season 4 trailer above shows an angry Stan (Noah Emmerich) confronting Philip (Matthew Rhys) and the first Jennings’ child, Paige (Holly Taylor), confessing a certain betrayal to her mother, Elizabeth (Keri Russell). That being said, the meeting of the Jennings’ most influential handlers, Claudia (character actress Margo Martindale) and Gabriel (Frank Langella), presumably discussing sending their agents back to Russia, is the most telling bit of the new trailer — and a delight for fans who love both characters (and actors). How those scenes endanger the happy couple’s operation will play a huge part in the upcoming season.
“The Americans” is set to return for Season 4 on March 16. Check out the new trailer above, a brief new tease focusing on Martha below and don’t miss this year’s hot new poster as well.
