Like mother, like daughter.
On FX’sRussian spies Elizabeth ( ) and Philip ( ) have spent years honing their craft to extract American secrets and deliver them to their mother country. And now, they’re passing their skills on to a new generation — daughter Paige ( ).
A new teaser video for the sixth and final season shows Elizabeth talking to a disguise-wearing Paige, who seems to be part of their missions now. “You handled it well,” mom says, as if her daughter merely bounced back from a cheerleading fall instead of carrying out dangerous spy work.
Season 6 jumps forward three years to 1987, which means the show is now set in the last years of the Cold War — the end of which should bring huge questions for the Jennings and their children.
For now, though, Paige is following in the family business, something “Elizabeth has wanted for a long time, and it’s finally happening,” Weisberg told
“She’s getting to bring her kid along and go out and work with her sometimes and do things with her. She sometimes makes mistakes and that’s a little worrisome, but other times Paige really does well and is successful and that feels great.”
“The Americans” premieres March 28 on FX.
