FX management announced about the renewal of «The Americans» television series for Season 4 without waiting for the final episode of its third season. Nick Grad, FX’s Original Programming Co-President, is sure that this TV-project has got more approvals of critics in 2015, that’s why the rights holders are obliged to keep working.
In statistical terms, the show isn’t so successful, as it is losing its rating and auditory. Despite this, 13 new episodes have been already confirmed to be produced, the premiere date of the first of which is scheduled for March 16, 2016 (at 10/9c).
