Watch: ‘The Americans’ Season 3 Trailer Has Our Pulses Racing

Watch: 'The Americans' Season 3 Trailer Has Our Pulses Racing

“Are you committed to your country?” asks a menacing KGB officer at the start of a new teaser clip promoting the third season premiere of FX’s “The Americans.”

Normally this would be a no-breeze question for undercover Russian agents Philip and Elizabeth Jennings (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell, respectively), but after the bombshell twists of the second season finale, which shook their loyalty to the Mother Country, their commitment to the mission may now require the ultimate sacrifice.

Will the Jennings choose country or family? It’s the question tormenting fans of the acclaimed FX political thriller since it went off the air last May, and the answer is on the horizon as the show gears up for its third season. Given the moody red lighting and ticking clock on display in the clip below, the answer to the question will bring new tension for the Jennings, and hopefully continue to raise the stakes of a show that has become one of television’s best in its first two years.

“The Americans” Season 3 premieres Wednesday, January 28 at 10pm ET/PT.
