The Americans Renewed For Two Last Seasons

FX has announced that an endgame plan has been finalized for The Americans. The veteran drama was renewed today for two final seasons that will conclude the series. The long lead time until the final episode should come as welcome news to fans, as it allows the showrunners ample time to plan out exactly how the story will end.
The network has ordered 13 episodes for Season 5 of The Americans, which will air in 2017. Then in 2018, 10 last episodes will wrap up the story, ending a successful run of the critically-acclaimed 80's spy drama, which has been a flagship series for FX since its premiere in 2013.

    SPOILER: During Season 3, when Paige finds out about her parents' real identities, one of her many questions for them is why they don't have accents, to which Philip starts to explain that they were very well-trained to lose them. This interchange is an inside nod to the fact that in his real life, Matthew Rhys (the actor who plays Philip) speaks English with a strong Welsh accent. Like Philip, Rhys's first language was not English; also like Phillip, Rhys is able to imitate an American accent nearly flawlessly due to his extensive training (though in Rhys's case, his training was as an actor, not a spy).

    The premise of this series is partly based on the true story that broke in 2010 of a cell of Russian Sleeper agents who had been "hiding in plain sight" in the United States for decades. Several of them had had children, coworkers, friends, and neighbors who all had no idea that they were spies. These agents were ultimately returned to Russia in a trade for some Americans who were being held by Russia.

    Some high-profile fans of the show include Bernardo Bertolucci, Gary Oldman, David Bowie, and Ben Affleck. Affleck shot The Accountant (2016) with Alison Wright, who plays Martha, and when Wright arrived in Atlanta to begin filming, Affleck ran up to her on set, arms outstretched, saying, "God, just give me a hug, give me a hug, call me Clark once, oh my God - Martha!"
