The Jennings Are Caught in A Tangled Web in FX’s ‘The Americans’ Season 5

by Devon Thomas  |  03.06.2017

The Jennings spin a complex web of mystery and deceit in the upcoming fifth season of the FX original drama The Americans.

A teaser titled “Web of Lies” plays on the deception caused by the arrange marriage of Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and Philip (Matthew Rhys) whose likenesses appear in a tangled web of red yarn. Also the escalating tensions of the Cold War seem to be having an effect on their increasingly lustful pairing.

The fifth season also digs deeper into the Soviet Union as Oleg Burov (Costa Ronin), a KGB officer who met with FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich) while working in Washington, settles back in the former U.S.S.R.

The Americans returns Tuesday, March 7 at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
