The Walking Dead alum Laurie Holden is about to activate FBI Agent Stan Beeman’s love life in The Americans Season 5.

Previous seasons have seen viewers watch Stan’s (Noah Emmerich) marriage break down over his dedication to his job, and has since been unlucky in love while struggling to get over his now ex-wife.

Holden is joining the cast in the recurring role of Renee, a new woman in town who captures the interest of Stan when they meet at the gym. Renee easily keeps up with the guys watching sports, drinking beer, and fly fishing, but is she the woman of Stan’s dreams?

Holden, who is also known for roles on Major Crimes, Chicago Fire, The X-Files and The Shield, joins regular cast Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell as Russian spies posing as ‘Americans’ Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings and their children played by Holly Taylor and Keidrich Sellati.

The Americans Season 5 is currently filming with the 13-episode season set to air in 2017. Season 6 has already been commissioned and will be the shows final season.
