Fans of FX's 'The Americans' and its Cold War-era sex and treason are in for double the treat wth not one -- but two! -- trailers for Season 2 circulating online. 

In the first trailer, viewers can hear an unidentified person entering a room, dialing a phone number and saying not-so-inconspicously, "I didn't tell them anything," while a camera pans across a closet to reveal Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth (Keri Russell) hiding amid the clothes. Let's just hope there wasn't any mothballs in there, am I right? 

In the second teaser, which is a bit lengthier, Philip and Elizabeth are at the dinner table with their children, who abruptly leave them when the meal is over ("Thanks, Dad!). Then the lighting gets all red and scary and suddenly there's a gun on the table and Philip and Elizabeth are now in the middle of a game of Russian Roulette, befittingly enough (geez, how bad was dinner?). Then they both grab the gun at the same time, uh oh!...Now what? Intense stuff. 

'The Americans' follows two Russian spies (Rhys and Russell) in deep cover as a married couple in 1981 Washington, D.C. The drama was nominated for two Emmys this year and was recently awarded by AFI as one of the top ten television programs of 2013. 

Season 2 premieres in February.
