FX Networks just announced the animated adult comedy series Archer is moving from FX to FXX beginning with the upcoming season. Archer‘s eighth season will debut this spring on FXX, and the critically acclaimed series has already earned renewal orders for seasons nine and 10. By making the move to FXX, the popular show will be joining that network’s comedy lineup that includes It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, You’re the Worst, and Man Seeking Woman.
The Emmy Award-winning comedy series was created by Adam Reed. The talented voice cast includes H. Jon Benjamin, Jessica Walter, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Chris Parnell, Amber Nash, Lucky Yates, and series creator/executive producer Reed.
“Adam Reed, Matt Thompson and Floyd County continue to make one of the funniest shows on television and it’s great to see them earn the awards and acclaim that comes with one of the most loyal and avid fan bases in the industry,” said FX Networks President of Program Strategy and COO Chuck Saftler.
The Plot: The animated, half-hour comedy revolves around the hardboiled private eye Sterling Archer and his quest to find his partner’s killer in 1947 Los Angeles. The case proves to be more difficult than expected after Archer quickly gets mixed up in a deadly game of tug of war between Los Angeles’ most powerful crime bosses. Every clue leads Archer further away from his goal and deeper into a mystery involving kidnapping, prostitution and drug addiction.
