Awards circuits favorites The Americans and Atlanta are about to make their return to television with a new entry from FX, Trust.

The Americans will be airing its sixth and final season, so we're ready for just about anything, even if we worry more than ever about the fate of the Jennings family.

Atlanta Season 2 is unconventionally named Atlanta Robbin' Season, and all of the juicy details about it are below along with what to expect from the new drama, Trust.

The Americans will premiere its sixth and final season on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, at 10 PM ET/PT on FX. The details of The Americans Season 6 look absolutely scrumptious, see what you think!

After a particularly fraught mission, Philip and Elizabeth decide to end their tour and take their family home to Russia. However, a game-changing development in one of their ongoing cases forces them to abandon those plans for the sake of the motherland.

Now, Paige delves deeper into the family business, even as Philip takes a step back from it. The Jennings struggle to maintain a smokescreen of normalcy, especially around their son, Henry, who remains blissfully ignorant of the spies in his midst.

Their neighbor and Philip’s best friend, FBI Agent Stan Beeman, has also yet to discover their true identities. Although he’s transferred divisions, Stan remains their greatest threat since his friend and former partner, Agent Dennis Aderholt, leads the force tasked with uncovering the Soviet Illegals hiding in plain sight.

With Gorbachev in power in the Soviet Union, the winds of change are sweeping through both Russia and America, creating new perils. A growing rift within the KGB draws disillusioned former officer Oleg Burov back into the fray and may set Philip and Elizabeth on opposing sides as the Cold War reaches its boiling point. 

The Americans was created by Joe Weisberg who, along with Joel Fields, serves as an Executive Producer and Writer.

Atlanta File

Atlanta Robbin’ Season, the next season of the acclaimed and award-winning comedy series, will premiere on FX on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 10 pm ET/PT.

On Atlanta Robbin’ Season, two cousins work through the Atlanta music scene in order to better their lives and the lives of their families. The first season of Atlanta won two Emmy Awards as well as two Golden Globe Awards and AFI, Peabody, PGA, WGA, TCA, NAACP and Critics’ Choice Awards.

Trust, the first season of the new drama series, will premiere on Sunday, March 25, 2018, at 10 PM ET/PT on FX.

Inspired by actual events, Trust delves into the trials and triumphs of one of America’s wealthiest and unhappiest families, the Gettys. Equal parts family history, dynastic saga and an examination of the corrosive power of money, Trust explores the complexities at the heart of every family, rich or poor.

Told over multiple seasons and spanning the twentieth century, the series begins in 1973 with the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III (Harris Dickinson), an heir to the Getty oil fortune, by the Italian mafia in Rome. His captors banked on a multi-million-dollar ransom. 

After all, what rich family wouldn’t pay for the return of a loved one? Paul’s grandfather, J. Paul Getty Sr. (Donald Sutherland), an enigmatic oil tycoon and possibly the richest man in the world, is marooned in a Tudor mansion in the English countryside surrounded by a harem of mistresses and a pet lion.

He’s busy. Paul’s father, J. Paul Getty Jr. (Michael Esper), is lost in a daze in London and refuses to answer the phone. Only Paul’s mother, Gail Getty (Hilary Swank), is left to negotiate with the increasingly desperate kidnappers. Unfortunately, she’s broke.

Trust charts the teenage grandson’s nightmare ordeal at the hands of kidnappers who cannot understand why nobody seems to want their captive back. The cast also includes Brendan Fraser, Anna Chancellor, Norbert Leo Butz, Charlotte Riley and Luca Marinelli.

Trust is created by Simon Beaufoy and executive produced by Danny Boyle, Beaufoy and Christian Colson, with Boyle directing the first three episodes.

There you go! Are you ready for what FX is offering this spring? In addition to the Sons of Anarchy spinoff, Mayans MC, it looks like the future is bright for the network.

Sound off below! Are you ready to say goodbye to the Jennings and hello to the Getty family?
