FX Renews The Americans for Season 3


The Americans has been renewed for a 13-episode third season, FX announced Wednesday.

"The Americans continues be one of the best shows on television," Eric Schrier, FX president of original programming, said in a statement. "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 Emmy-nominated Cold War drama follows two KGB spies (Russell and Rhys) posing as a married couple in suburban Washington, D.C. Emmerich stars as Stan, their friend and neighbor who also happens to be an FBI agent.

The Americans second season will wrap up on Wednesday, May 21 at 10pm on FX.

I would very much like to find a forum where people can exchange views on this show. I have tried most of the links in this site but so far, this is the best place I have found.

Can anyone explain how I can find a user forum on this site or, failing that, can anyone recommend a different site where a user forum exists and there is some activity where several people exchange their points of view?

Thank you.

Strangely, this article doesn't appear in the "All" News section, only the "News" News. Hmm, maybe it's because we've been infiltrated by a tvguide.com agent, which I guess is appropriate for this show!

I know that FX likes to run their original dramas for 6 or 7 seasons, so I hope it's setting lasts into the late 80s. Sizable time jumps between seasons can help with that. I'd like to see it go right up to the fall of USSR, but the necessary aging of Paige & Henry would make that difficult. A great final episode(s) would be the end of the Soviet Union, the end of the KGB, and what that means for Philip, Elizabeth, & Stan. I'd be happy with a conclusion that doesn't involved a lot of gunfire, a hefty body count, or arrests, but with Philip & Elizabeth disappearing in the wind whether or not Stan know who they really are, and with him not being able to do much about it even if he did know.

Best show currently on FX. They would be fools to not renew it.

Da!

The Americans is easily in my Top 10, so this is fantastic news. Also, this is the first time I've been to The Americans community page, and I love the splash of red. Nice touch, TV.com.
