Season five of FX’s Archer isn’t over yet (there are still seven new episodes to go), however the network’s already confirmed the popular, award-winning animated series will be back for season six and seven. FX has given the series two 13 episode season orders, according to Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions Eric Schrier and Nick Grad.
“Archer is one of the best comedies on television and has played a significant role in the growth of the FX comedy brand,” said Schrier. “We’re grateful to Adam Reed, Matt Thompson and their team at Floyd County, and also our incredible voice cast, and are looking forward to supporting their work for at least two more seasons.”
“I am figuratively over the moon,” said series creator Adam Reed after being told Archer was renewed for two more seasons.
The season five finale will air on Monday, April 21st at 10pm ET/PT.
Archer, an animated, half-hour comedy, revolves around the spy agency known as the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillances has always been daunting and enigmatic, every covert operation and global crisis is actually unmitigated occasions for the ISIS staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gains and selfish pleasures. In season five, after discovering that ISIS activities were unsanctioned by the U.S. government, the crew was forced to set out in a new direction, attempting to cash in on a stockpile of cocaine and transforming “Cheryl” into country music’s next big star, “Cherlene.” What is in store for Archer and the rest of the ISIS crew in seasons six and beyond? Tune in to find out.
The voice cast includes H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, and Lucky Yates.
