FX's "The Americans" Gets A Third Season

53 minutes ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Currently in the middle of airing its second season, FX has given the renewal order for its 1980s Cold War spy drama "The Americans". The 13-episode third season will go to air early next year.

The renewal for the Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys-led series is no surprise following FX CEO John Landgraf's comments last week during the cable channel's upfront presentation in New York.

Though not the ratings hit of similarly acclaimed drama shows on the network like "Justified," "Sons of Anarchy" and "American Horror Story", it is one of the most time-shifted series on cable.

The second season premiere scored 1.9 million viewers in overnight ratings, a figure that jumped to 3.3 million viewers after three days of DVR use was factors in. It also has scored a lot of both critical acclaim and awards nominations.

The renewal comes as FX faces a sea change of shows with »

‘The Americans’ Renewed for Season 3

1 hour ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Americans may not possess the word-of-mouth appeal of other FX series like Sons of Anarchy and American Horror Story. However, the spy drama – which stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as a pair of Soviet Kgb officers posing as a married American couple during the Cold War – has managed to carve itself a strong niche among viewers and a fervent fanbase all its own.

After a highly praised first season, The Americans returned for season 2 with modest but solid ratings in keeping with its season-one average. Furthermore, the series has proven to be a great asset to FX with regards to the precious demographic of adults 18-49, where its numbers ...

The Americans Renewed For Season 3

1 hour ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

FX has just announced that they have officially renewed their hit cold war drama, The Americans, for a third season. This follows closely after network CEO John Landgraf teased the pending renewal at last week’s upfront presentation in New York. The series is currently in the middle of an explosive sophomore season, with six episodes remaining after tonight. Thanks to this renewal, fans can now expect another thirteen episodes next spring.

The Americans, which boasts an outstanding ensemble cast led by Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich, follows the lives of two Kgb operatives living covertly in the suburbs of Washington D.C. The couple, Elizabeth (Russell) and Phillip (Rhys), maintain their cover as ordinary American citizens by running a travel agency and raising two children – they are practically oozing the American Dream.

Although they’ve managed to keep their identities a secret for over a decade, things change when their new neighbor, »

'The Americans' Gets Renewed for a Third Season by FX

2 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

FX has ordered a 13-episode third season of the critical darling "The Americans" starring Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys, and Noah Emmerich. Announced by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming for FX, the series has become a key draw for the network, and that looks likely to continue for another year at least. The first season of the show won the Television Critics Association (TCA) Award for Outstanding New Program, and, unlike many shows, it's second season was even stronger.  Set in 1981 just after Ronald Reagan is elected president, the show deals with the complex marriage of two Kgb spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. The series was created by and is executive produced by Joe Weisberg ("Falling Skies"), a former CIA agent who went on to become an accomplished author. Joel Fields and Graham Yost are also executive producers, along with Amblin Television heads Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. »

The Americans renewed for season 3

FX has ordered a third season of ace spy drama, The Americans...

Thirteen brand new episodes of The Americans are coming to FX in 2015, thanks to an early third season renewal for the eighties-set spy drama.

Set in the early Reagan era, The Americans stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as the Jennings, two Soviet Kgb officers posing as an all-American married couple whose allegiances to their country and to one another, are continually being tested. There's sex, violence, and Phil Collins in the first season, so if that isn't recommendation enough, we don't know what is. 

FX is currently halfway through airing season two, which is maintaining an average audience of approximately 1.4 million a week.

FX Renews The Americans for Season Three

3 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

FX has ordered a 13-episode third season of its excellent drama series The Americans.  While I enjoyed but wasn’t over-the-moon about its first season, the current second season of the period spy drama has turned the show into one of the very best on TV—and in this current Golden Age of Television, that’s saying something.  Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys star as sleeper Kgb agents living in America as a married couple with two kids during the Reagan-fueled early 1980s.  While on the surface the show is a thrilling spy series, at its heart The Americans is really a portrait of a marriage as told through the incredibly complicated lives of two individuals, with Russell and Rhys regularly turning in brilliantly nuanced performances.  Suffice it to say, I am very much looking forward to The Americans season 3.

FX Renews The Americans

3 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

FX has renewed The Americans for a 13-episode third season, the network announced today. The Cold War drama is currently halfway through its second season, and while the live ratings are nothing to brag about, the show does much better once you factor in DVR viewers, too. Even though FX has been promising for several weeks that an official announcement was nigh, it's still a relief to know, officially, that everyone will be back for more espionage. More sexy espionage. And presumably more espionage-y sex, too.  »

FX renews 'The Americans' for season 3

3 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a sign of the changing economics of the TV industry, as well as a boon for fans of quality television, FX has renewed "The Americans" for a third season of 13 episodes. "The Americans," which stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as Kgb sleeper agents posing as an American couple in the early '80s, is one of the very best shows on television. Its live ratings, though, are modest, and have actually gone down a bit from last year's numbers. But the show also doubles its audience when you count those who watch via DVR or other methods within the first seven days of airing. Every TV executive in the business has been trumpeting Live+7 numbers as a way to show that their audiences haven't slipped nearly as much as it seems from looking at overnight ratings. The question has been whether there's enough money to be made that way, »

When including seven days of DVR playback, The Americans has averaged 3.1 million viewers this year. The second season finale is scheduled for Wednesday, May 21. “Fans will be blown away by the rest of this season, »
