Next year, fans of the spy drama will get even more secrets, more disguises and more wigs

The Cold War espionage is far from over: FX has ordered a third season of The Americans. FX said Wednesday that the hit show would get 13 new episodes airing next year.

“We are so delighted and grateful to continue telling the stories of these characters,” executive producer Joel Fields told Variety.

The critically-acclaimed spy drama set in the 1980s is currently in its second season and has been averaging 3.08 million total viewers. “The Americans” was trending on Twitter within hours of the announcement.

The Americans continues be one of the best shows on television,” FX’s co-president of original programming Eric Schrier said in a statement. “Fans will be blown away by the rest of this season, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next year.”
