FX Renews <i>The Americans</i> for Second Season

Only four weeks into its first season, and FX has announced that its Cold War drama The Americans will be renewed for a new season, according to Deadline.

Set in the early 1980s, the series centers on two sleeper Russian spies—played by Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys—masquerading as normal, Washington, D.C. suburbanites.

The pilot drew a reported 3.22 million viewers, beating out the premiere of other FX staples such as Sons of Anarchy and American Horror Story.

The first season finale is set to air on May 1.
