Phillip and Elizabeth's daughter Paige will be a lot more involved when The Americans come back for season 2.
The Jennings will not only be facing national threats but threats from home as well, reported TVLine's Michael Ausiello on Wednesday. Season 1 ended with Phillip and Elizabeth's teenager daughter coming close to discovering her parents' secret.
"There's going to be a lot of Paige in Season 2," said Americans executive producer Joe Weisberg. "That [moment] was not just a one-off. It's not just 'Paige got suspicious and looked in the basement.' There's going to be a lot of Paige thinking about her parents, and parents thinking about Paige."
Weisberg also confirmed that Phillip and Elizabeth will be living together again when season 2 picks up. Phillip is "moving back in" after Elizabeth told him in the season finale "come home." Weisberg added "he's been waiting for her."
Matthew Rhys (Phillip) talked with the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday and revealed that for season 2 he is "holding out a lot of hope for Phillip and Elizabeth," calling himself a hopeless romantic.
The Americans has achieved critical acclaim over the past few weeks, getting significant nominations at both the Critics' Choice TV Awards and the Television Critics Association Awards. At the former, The Americans received nominations in Best Drama Series, as well as acting nominations for Rhys, Keri Russell (Elizabeth) and Noah Emmerich (Stan).
Enstars reported on Monday that the TCA nominated The Americans for Outstanding Achievement in Drama, Best New Program, Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama for Rhys and Program of the Year.
Adding to its success, Zap2it reported in late May that The Americans tied Justified's record for most-watched first season of any FX drama, averaging 3.4 million viewers per episode.
The Americans will begin production on season 2 in September and is set to premiere early 2014 on FX.
