Deadline is reporting that Lev Gorn (Arkady Ivanovich) is being promoted to series regular for season three.

The Washingtonian has an interview with costume designer Jenny Gering.

The UK-based online magazine Digital Spy has picked The Americans as one of its best TV shows you might have missed.

The AV Club features an article on "catfish culture" and how it's spilled over into lots of television shows that talks a lot about The Americans.

Hitfix reviewed the new U.S. fall spy drama Allegiance and compared it relentlessly with our show.

Elsewhere on dreamwidth, German fan [dreamwidth.org profile] selenak has been reviewing the show as she watches (in English).

Vox has nominated The Americans as one of the shows to binge-watch in 2014.

Alyssa Rosenberg of the Washington Post talks about how the show deserves an Emmy for "Outstanding Casting of Young Actors."

And this is just a little thing, but this interview with Barbra Streisand makes a little mention of her love of our show. :)

FX presented their upcoming programming to the Television Critics' Association today. The "Americansfan" tumblr blog has some photos and some very mild spoilers, and TVline and USA Today hash through some of the information they're letting out about season two as well.

Two of the critics who most strongly championed the show in its first season, Matt Zoller Seitz of Vulture and Alyssa Rosenberg of Think Progress, have reviewed screeners for the first two episodes and pronounced them good. Seitz says: crisp, densely packed storytelling; double lives abound, more family emphasis, and Rosenberg says: watching the new season and getting enraged over the lack of awards attention it got all over again and also, the new season is great.

Apparently paparazzi can be good for something: one of them took a bunch of photos of Keri Russell while she was filming a fight scene for season two. And one of Matthew Rhys' makeup artists has a photo of him from filming as well.

And last but not least, it seems that if you were a New York-based actor, you could get your headshots taken by the one and only Arkady Ivanovich.

This has already been discussed in comments, but episode title spoiler )

Two still shots from the set of season two, from producer Dan Sackheim: Noah Emmerich, Lev Gorn and Annet Mahendru.

And this isn't about season two, but it's still delightful. Says writer/producer/director Judd Apatow: "I feel like we are talking about a lot of TV shows- there are so many great ones - but I may enjoy The Americans most of all." (Read the whole conversation; it's very satisfying. :)
