"It's been a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a show like this with the immensely talented and immeasurably supportive team at FX and Fox 21 Television Studios," executive producers Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields said of the pickup. "We are blessed with an extraordinary cast and crew and grateful that we'll all be able to continue telling this story that we love so much."

"Remarkably, this season of The Americans has achieved even greater acclaim than that of its first two seasons," FX boss Nick Grad said in a statement. "The series has cemented it status with critics as television's best current drama and arguably the best show on TV, and we couldn't agree more. That universal critical praise is a tribute to the talents of Joe, Joel, Keri, Matthew, Noah and the entire cast and crew. We look forward to the final four episodes of season three, and beyond, in Philip and Elizabeth Jennings' riveting journey."

The Cold War-era spy drama also stars Noah Emmerich, Annet Mahendru and Holly Taylor.
