There’s a good reason The Americans captured our attention: It made us wonder, is The Americans based on a true story?

At long last we have a date.

Unlike the Russian hackers and agents filling up your news feeds, the Russian spies in this series have a dedicated American fan base. And you probably need to brace yourselves for an explosive final season after season five’s slow burn.

While previous seasons threw twists and turns at audiences, the fifth season kept it centered in the Jennings household.

Fans of the show know Elizabeth has kept her cool under pressure, but Phillip has been showing signs of chinks in his armor for a few seasons. Will he finally crack under his disillusionment with “Command”? Will they finish what they started? For full context before you hit play after The Americans season 6 Amazon Prime release, read up on everything you need to know before watching the first episode of the final season.
