‘The Americans’ Season 3: FX Renews the Cold War Through 2015
No real surprise here, but even as FX continues to debut buzzworthy new programming from the likes of last night's 'Fargo' premiere to 'The Strain' this summer, one of the network's most acclaimed series picked up another season. Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell will return for 'The Americans' season 3 in 2015, continuing the undercover spy life in the Cold War era.
Six episodes into the series' second season, FX announced that the '80s spy drama will return for another round of 13 episodes next year. FX President John Landgraf previously confirmed a third season to be under discussion, with all likelihood pointing to the renewal.
Said Original Programming President Eric Schrier of 'The Americans' season 3:
'The Americans' continues to be one of the best shows on television. Executive Producers Joe Weisberg, Joel Fields and Graham Yost have done a wonderful job delivering two seasons, and the performances from Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich are stellar. Fans will be blown away by the rest of this season, and we can't wait to see what they come up with next year.
'The Americans' may not have the same ratings as some of FX's higher-profile series, though we're glad to see it continue uninterrupted all the same. What say you?
