For as much as we await the next rounds of 'Justified,' 'Anger Management' and 'Archer' to premiere this January, we have to admit our growing anticipation for FX's period spy drama 'The Americans.' Not only does the show boast some serious star power, including the recent addition of 'Justified' Emmy vet Margo Martindale, but thus far the network has come up with some pretty cool teasers. Check out the latest, and tell us if you harbor a secret affinity for 'The Americans' as well, comrade!
It's good to be in the FX family. Many of 'Justified' fans (and some Emmy voters) would argue that the FX gunslinger series never had a villain as good or a performance as magnetic as Margo Martindale's Mags Bennett, and now the network is doubling down on the esteemed actress. Martindale will join FX's buzz-worthy upcoming drama 'The Americans' for at least eight episodes, but which side will she be on? Is another Emmy in the works?
A few weeks back, FX began hashing out its winter schedule to include the returns of some of our favorite series, including fourth seasons of 'Justified' and 'Archer,' and even a second go around of 'Anger Management,' but with one notable exception. Where was the new Keri Russell Cold War drama we've been hearing about, 'The Americans'? Well
comrades friends, 'The Americans' has officially decoded a premiere January date, so when can we see it?
With all the flurry of the elections and political coverage last night, it seems FX decided to sneak in a political message of their own, albeit for a very different kind of red than the Republicans. Instead, the pay cable network treated audiences to their first real look at its upcoming cold war Keri Russell drama 'The Americans!' So, is the buzz-worthy new drama as sizzling as execs have promised, or does it leave us feeling out in the cold?
It wasn't all thrills and chills last night during the premiere of FX's terror-laden thriller 'American Horror Story: Asylum,' and that's a good thing considering how little sleep we got last night. Along with a teaser for the fourth season of FX's Justified, we also caught our first glimpse at upcoming Keri Russell period spy drama 'The Americans!' So, what did the new teaser reveal about the undercover KGB action? Who will rise when the series debuts?
Well, that was fast. But hey, there's no use Stalin, right? Just hours after announcing that FX's Keri Russell Cold War spy drama 'The Americans' would be taken to series, the network has hit the Marx by releasing the first images of the series, featuring Russell and her co-star Matthew Rhys. So, are 'The Americans' pics full of state secrets, or is the truth buried undercover? See for yourself!
FX has gun-slinging lawmen, altruistic biker gangs, despondently downtrodden comedians and even Charlie Sheen, but now the network can cross yet another archetype off its list: undercover KGB spies. We'd previously heard that Keri Russell could come back to TV in FX's Cold War-era drama 'The Americans,' but now we're hearing that the series has been picked up for a full order. Just what is the network saying about it, and when will we see the series?
Well, if we wanted to split hairs about the new man in
Felicity Keri Russell's life, we might have to contend that Scott Speedman and Scott Foley were just a little bit cuter. But hey, this is a different time... Where previously it was announced that Keri Russell would be returning to TV once more to take the lead role in new retro-espionage drama on FX, now we know the other half of the KGB pair set to learn America's deepest secrets from within.
TV Gods bless FX. They recruit excellent stars for their series, and as often as they can, try to keep both actors and producers in the family. Their sweet, Emmy-winning families.
Whether or not you're a 'Felicity' watcher from back in the day, the latest round of pilot casting news comes to us from Deadline TV, who report that Keri Russell has finally signed on to take one of the lead roles in upcoming spy period piece 'The Americans,' created by Joe Weisberg ('Falling Skies'), and executive-produced by 'Justified' showrunner Graham Yost. Don't worry though, that fourth season of 'Justified' will keep Graham Yost plenty busy too.
