The Americans: Season 5 School’s Out Promo, Plot Synopsis, and Air Date

The Americans: Season 5 TV show promo entitled ‘School’s Out’, official plot synopsis, and official release date have been released by FX. The TV show commercial for the upcoming season of The Americans is very telling about Paige Jennings (Holly Taylor). The Americans promo can be interpreted in multiple ways: Paige has been desensitized, Paige knew the planes were going to fly over head, etc. This commercial lets the viewer know that Paige will evolve even further during Season 5. When Paige asked her mother to teach her self-defense at the end of Season 4, it was clear that Paige was beginning to head down a certain road, whether she realized it or not.

The Americans: Season 5 official plot synopsis:

Set in the 1980s at the height of the Cold War, The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. The arranged marriage of Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but as the pressures and demands of the job grow heavier, the personal toll becomes almost too exhausting to bear.

Having revealed their true identities to their teenage daughter, Paige (Holly Taylor), Philip and Elizabeth’s ability to protect their cover and their family’s safety has become even more tenuous. Even as Paige pushes her parents to bring her deeper into their confidence, Philip and Elizabeth struggle to maintain normalcy in their family, especially around their son, Henry (Keidrich Sellati). Paige’s budding romance with Matthew, the son of their neighbor, FBI Agent Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich), further complicates matters since Stan – Philip’s best friend – remains the greatest threat to the Jennings’ safety. He and his partner, Agent Dennis Aderholt (Brandon J. Dirden) are on the task force that seeks to uncover the Soviet Illegals living among them.

After Stan’s KGB lover/asset Nina was sent back to Moscow and executed for treason, he cultivated a relationship with KGB officer Oleg Burov (Costa Ronin), who, torn between duty and conscience, shared top Soviet secret intel with Stan that allowed the FBI to avert a potentially catastrophic loss of life.  Disillusioned with the KGB, Oleg returned home to Russia, but he is finding it harder to escape his past transgressions than he had hoped.  As the Cold War rages on, paranoia on both sides reaches new heights, making Philip and Elizabeth’s work increasingly vital – and eminently more perilous.

The Americans: Season 5 also stars Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell, Keidrich Sellati, Noah Emmerich, Frank Langella, Danny Flaherty, Margo Martindale, Alexander Sokovikov, Peter Mark Kendall, Brandon deSpain, Ethan McGuire, Brandon J. Dirden, Costa RoninLaurie Holden, and Lorna Brooks.
