Despite knowing that "The Americans" only has two more seasons left, fans are still hungry for news about the well-loved FX show. Now spoilers for "The Americans" Season 5 indicate that two new characters will be joining Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings.

While it has already been announced that "The Americans" will end its run in 2018, on the sixth season of the show, fans are wondering how showrunners Joel Fields and Joseph Weisberger will handle the end of the show. They have already claimed in an interview that "The Americans" Season 5 will present some interesting story lines for the characters in the series.

The latest season of "The Americans" featured Phillip Jennings, played by Matthew Rhys, being dissatisfied with his job. Paige, the daughter of Phillip and Elizabeth have also found out about their job in "The Americans" Season 4. What should fans expect in "The Americans" Season 5?

New updates for "The Americans" Season 5 is that two TV veterans are joining the cast. Brett Tucker, who has been seen in TV shows such as "NCIS", "Castle" and "Mistresses", will join "The Americans" season 5 as Ben Stobert. He will portray a scientist who is intelligent and charming, but who might be hiding a secret when it comes to the real nature of his work.

Meanwhile, it seems that Stan Beeman (Noah Emmerich) might have a love interest in "The Americans" Season 5 in the form of a former cast member for "The Walking Dead" Lauren Holden. Holden, who played Andrea Harrison in "TWD" for three seasons, will be playing Renee who will catch Beeman's interest. She is a woman who likes to do guy things such as watching sports and drinking beer.

Holden and Emmerich were both in "TWD" so it will be a reunion of sorts when they get together for "The Americans" Season 5. There is no exact date of release for "The Americans" Season 5, but it will air by 2017.
