London: TV series 'The Americans' could run for at least five seasons, according to FX president John Landgraf. The Cold War drama about Soviet spies posing as an American couple is gearing up to premiere its third season later in January, reported Digital Spy.
Landgraf expressed confidence in the show remaining on FX for years to come in his presentation at the TCA press tour.
"I think it'll be at least five seasons," the programming executive told reporters. "Some of that will be dependent on how good it remains." He went on to criticise the Emmys for failing to nominate the critically-acclaimed drama series.
"I sure would like to see the Emmys step up and take notice of the series," Landgraf said, adding: "That would be really helpful for the longevity of the show."
Margo Martindale has twice earned Primetime Emmy Award nominations for her guest appearances, but the series has been shutout of other major categories thus far in its run.
'The Americans' will welcome Academy Award nominee Frank Langella to its main cast for season three as a new KGB handler for Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) and her husband Philip (Matthew Rhys).
