FX obviously knows when not to cancel a good show (are you listening FOX?). The network has renewed their animated spy comedy series “Archer” for not just one but two more seasons. This means Sterling Archer and gang will grace our television sets for a 6th and 7th season.
Each of the two seasons will consist of 13 episodes, and will bring the show into the year 2016. “Archer” is currently in the middle of its fifth season.
President of original programming for FX, Eric Schrier said:
“Archer is one of the best comedies on television and has played a significant role in the growth of the FX comedy brand. 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.”
Archer follows egotistical international spy Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) and the people he works with at ISIS (International Secret Intelligence Service), including his mother and boss Malory (Jessica Walters) and ex-lover and fellow spy Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler). Along with Walters, the show has several other “Arrested Development” alums including Jeffrey Tambor and Judy Greer.
