The Americans Season 2: Premiere Date, Time (+Preview, Trailers)

February 23, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

The Americans season 2 is set to premiere on FX this Wednesday, February 26.

It will air at 10 p.m. ET.

Let’s check out what we know so far:

-Martha will be less vulnerable as she embarks upon her relationship with her “husband” Clark. “We were always intrigued by that crazy, insane idea that this fake marriage, could it be good for Martha?” executive producer Joe Weigberg told TVLine.

-Margo Martindale will be back as Claudia for several episodes.

-Philip and Elizabeth start the season “with a new kind of unified front with each other,” Keri Russell told the Pasadena Star News. “Certainly Elizabeth hasn’t been engaged emotionally before, and I think she has decided this is where she wants to be.”

-Elizabeth starts having trouble dealing with Paige growing up. “She’s wearing lipstick all of a sudden,” Russell said. She’s going to look to be a better parent, she said.

-Speaking of Paige, she’s getting more and more curious about her parents. “It’s kind of really suspicious that my parents are travel agents and they’re out at 4 a.m,” said Holly Taylor, who plays Paige. Paige can’t cope with the fact that she doesn’t know what’s going on. It’s really frustrating for her.”

-Meanwhile, Stan is lonely and his relationship with Nina probably won’t end well. 

-There’s going go be “a fair number” of new faces in season 2, including a new handler to replace Claudia, executive producer Graham Yost told We Got This Covered. “There’s also new agents that they’re working, new spies that they’re running, but there’s also the inciting incident in the first episode. Something happens involving them, and another set of illegals also with a family. And that really sets the whole season in motion.”
