Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys star in the critically-acclaimed FX series as KGB spies posing as a suburban married couple in 1980s America.
The series first made its debut in 2013 and was created by a real-life former CIA officer, Joe Weisberg.
"The Americans" has managed to score with critics, but has proved only a modest success with home audiences.
The season 2 premiere, which debuted in February, drew in a little under two million viewers on first airing, according to TV By The Numbers.
"The Americans" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
