Good news.

Great news.

Excellent news.

Margo Martindale is returning to television. FX, to be exact. After her brilliant 2011 turn as Mags Bennett on FX’s Justified garnered her an Emmy win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, the veteran character actress notched a couple of guests spots but is now returning for a series regular position on The Americans. The drama, set during the Cold War 1980s, will revolve around a married Russian couple (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) who are undercover KGB spies, posing as Americans. Martindale will play what sounds like their handler.

Martindale can also be seen in the upcoming all-star film adaptation of the award-winning Broadway play August: Osage County.
