I hope people have caught up on The Americans, the first two seasons of the 1980s-set spy thriller. It’s a picture of old-school sky craft, where things are done the old way with clandestine meetings in the park, fake wigs and the threat of red terror. Which has been a refreshing change from the modern espionage thriller that relies too heavily on iPhones, GPS and computer monitoring tension. Think typewriters and early 80’s muscle cars.
The third season then has a debut date, which is January 28th 2015. It’ll run for thirteen episodes once again. Just to recap: The Americans is about two Soviet deep penetration moles living in the USA, under the guise of being a suburbanite family, even going as far as bearing children. To mix things up a little, they live next door to an FBI agent, whom they have befriended.
This series was talked about a little at last month’s NY Comic Con, you can check out the video below.
