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.
