The misadventures of the world’s most self-centered and perhaps stupidest ex-spy-turned-space captain will continue. FXX said during its panel at Comic-Con today that the animated spy spoof Archer has been renewed for Season 11.
“We are incredibly excited for our 11th season and look forward to Archer waking up from his coma and returning to a spy world that has continued without him for the past three years,” executive producer Casey Willis said.
The show is wrapping the third of a three-season renewal it scored in 2016. That pickup followed a two-year renewal in 2014. The series was moved from FX to FXX for Season 8 in its 2017 season. No details about the Season 11 setting were announced.
The half-hour comedy’s current season, titled Archer:1999, airs its penultimate episode Wednesday. It follows Sterling Archer, Lana Kane and their crew of acid-tongued misfits on board the M/V Seamus salvage ship. An important question arises as they explore deep space and try to outsmart giant aliens, intergalactic pirates, and vicious bounty hunters: how do they survive each other?
Archer:1999 features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the hard-drinking Captain Archer; Aisha Tyler as his co-captain and short-tempered ex-wife Kane; Jessica Walter as Archer’s mother and ball of energy, Malory Archer; Judy Greer as the eagle-eye fighter pilot, Cheryl/Carol Tunt; Chris Parnell as the attention-seeking first mate, Cyril Figgis; Amber Nash as the crew’s rock monster muscle, Pam Poovey; Adam Reed as the out-of-place-in-space courtesan Ray Gillette; and Lucky Yates as the synthetic human with questionable morals, Algernop Krieger.
The series, created by Adam Reed, has bounced around time and settings in recent seasons. Along with its current space place, it was centered on a lush South Pacific island in 1939 last season and in a noir 1940s Los Angeles the year before.
Executive produced by Reed, Matt Thompson and Casey Willis at Floyd County Productions, the series is produced by FX Productions.
