"The Americans" season 4 finally has a premiere date, as well as a cool, blue-tinged new poster.

This morning, FX announced that the '80s spy drama — one of the very best shows on television — will return on Wednesday, March 16, at 10 p.m. That's a bit later than previous seasons have premiered.

I've seen the season's first two episodes, and they're terrific. The second episode continues the show's knack for taking songs of the period and making it impossible to hear them again without thinking of something truly horrible.

Here's the poster. Looking forward to everybody seeing these, and resuming the conversation.
