FX Networks CEO John Landgraf teased the pending renewal at the company’s upfront presentation last week. The network now has ordered a 13-episode third season halfway through Season 2. “The Americans continues to be one of the best shows on television,” said FX Networks President of Original Programming Eric Schrier. With tonight’s broadcast, there are six episodes remaining in the current season. Set in 1981 just after Ronald Reagan is elected president, The Americans — starring Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich — chronicles the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. The series, from Fox TV Studios and FX Prods., was created by and is executive produced by Joe Weisberg, a former CIA agent. Joel Fields, Graham Yost and Dan Sackheim are also executive producers, along with Amblin Television’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.
