The cable network has renewed the freshman drama about KGB agents posing as a suburban couple living in the Washington, D.C., area with a 13-episode order. The announcement came after the airing of the drama's fourth episode.

The premiere of the series, which stars Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich, scored FX's most-watched debut ever for a series, with 5.1 million viewers.
