After six seasons, The Americans has spied its last episode.
Creator Joe Weisberg teased what the future holds for the Jennings’ in a theoretical Season 7, per Deadline:
“It’s tricky for them politically,” says Weisberg about the Jennings’ future in their homeland, “On the plus side, they defended Gorbachev, but they defied conspirators who were powerful and running the KGB on the minus side. It’s a bit tenuous. Gorbachev survived until the end of his term of power (Christmas 1991), so that’s good for them.”
“But in the long term they may not have the right friends,” adds Fields, “In terms of their longer history, that has not yet been written.”
What did you think of the series finale of The Americans? Did the show end at the right time, or would you have wanted a seventh season?
