Been a cracking season so far, maybe the best yet.

The Americans is coming to end. But at least not for awhile.

FX has given the acclaimed drama series a final, two-season pickup. A 13-episode fifth season will air in 2017, with a 10-episode sixth and final season to follow in 2018.


“It’s hard to believe we’re heading into the final stretch on The Americans, and we’re so grateful to know we’ll be telling the story to its conclusion,” said showrunners Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg in a statement. “The best part of the last four years has been the intensive and fruitful collaboration with all of the people who make this show …We’re looking forward to the final two.”

Added FX president of original programming Eric Schrier: “Through its first four seasons, critics have lauded The Americans as one of the best shows on television and, remarkably, a series that keeps getting better every year. All credit for that achievement goes to everyone who has worked on the show.”

The announcement will give the showrunners plenty of time to craft a final arc to their tale of married Soviet spies (Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys) in the 1980s. Perhaps the espionage thriller will also score an Emmy or two for its stars or showrunners as well – despite the drama’s love from critics (The Americans currently averages a chart-topping 95 out of 100 on Metacritic), Emmy and Golden Globes wins have eluded the series (aside from a guest actress Emmy for Margo Martindale).

Three episodes remain in the current season, with the season 4 finale airing June 8.

Great news, 1 of the best shows around. Seems like most have ignored it for some reason.

I've not watched past season 2 because I don't feel like hunting it all down on the high seas, or paying for it on Amazon.
Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Good return, not many shows can pull off a 10min digging scene.
