“Due to production challenges and scheduling issues” season 11 will no longer premiere on May 6,” the network said Monday in a statement. FX will shift the premiere date to later this year.
Archer, as with most other animated series, have been able to continue production during the coronavirus crisis, but things have slowed down due to the new challenges of virtual production, making it impossible to meet the May 6 date, the network said.
Created by Adam Reed, Archer‘s most recent season followed 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?
Series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Judy Greer, Chris Parnell, Amber Nash, Adam Reed and Lucky Yates.
Executive produced by Reed, Matt Thompson and Casey Willis at Floyd County Productions, the series is produced by FX Productions.
