‘The Americans’ Are in Serious Trouble by the First Season 4 Trailer
The axe (or sickle, technically) has been hanging over The Americans for three years, and might finally fall in Season 4. Our first official footage trailer has arrived, along with new synopses, and Paige doesn’t seem to be keeping her mouth shut any more than we last saw her.
FX released the first official footage from The Americans Season 4, ahead of its March premiere, as Paige’s decision to rat out her parents to the ultra-creepy Pastor Tim grows seriously complicated. There’s a lot of clever editing in play, but neither Stan nor Martha look particularly happy with Phillip and Elizabeth.
In the meantime, so reads the first two episode synopses for the season:
Episode 4.01 - Glanders
Picking up on the heels of last season’s finale, the season 4 premiere of The Americans sees Philip and Elizabeth dealing with the fallout of all they’ve wrought. What will happen when the FBI finds out about Gene’s suicide? How will Pastor Tim deal with the revelation that they are Russian spies? And will they be able to handle a dangerous, new bioweapons assignment?
Episode 4.02 - Pastor Tim
Philip tries with increasing desperation to get rid of a sensitive and dangerous package as family tensions in the Jennings House reach a boiling point when Paige shares a secret of her own.
FX has released few other details of The Americans Season 4, though we at least know that Frank Langella will return as Phillip and Elizabeth’s old handler Gabriel, with Margo Martindale reprising her role as Claudia as well. Early photos also suggested Dylan Baker might put in an appearance, though no details of his character have been made available.
