In the second season of The Americans, the ratings dropped 25-32%. Fortunately, FX renewed the series for a third year anyway. Will the ratings rise this time around or will they fall? Will the show be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? We’ll have to wait and see.
Taking place in the 1980s, The Americans revolves around the lives and secret work of Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and Philip Jennings (Matthew Rhys) — two Soviet KGB officers who are posing as an American married couple in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Others in the cast include Noah Emmerich, Holly Taylor, Keidrich Sellati, Annet Mahendru, Susan Misner, Alison Wright, Richard Thomas, and Lev Gorn.
