Keri Russell wants ‘The Americans’ Season 3 to concentrate on Philip and Elizabeth’s relationship

“The Americans” hasn’t yet completed its second season, but FX already picked up the Cold War spy drama for Season 3. While promoting her new movie “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” at WonderCon Anaheim 2014, star Keri Russell says she’d like to see the series go back to basics in 2015.

“My favorite is when it’s concentrated on the relationship and it’s really a metaphor for marriage. That’s my favorite way,” she tells Zap2it on the red carpet. “I love the spy stuff, I love the way it raises the stakes and complicates the weird relationship, but I like the marriage stuff.”

Between her work on “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and her commitment to “The Americans,” Russell had a busy year. She says she plans to spend the summer relaxing before getting back into character as Elizabeth Jennings.

“I want to just spend the summer not working at all. I want to take my kids to school and pick them up, and I want to travel anywhere, any time, so any friend that’s going somewhere, I want to go, and then work again in the fall,” she says.

“The Americans” Season 2 airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
