‘Archer’ renewed for 3 more seasons on FX
FX has renewed “Archer” for three additional eight-episode seasons. The move will carry the animated comedy through Season 10. The eighth season, the first covered under the extension, is set to premiere in 2017.
Floyd County Productions, the company behind the show, has also signed a new overall deal with FX Networks.
“We can’t say enough about what [creator] Adam [Reed], [EP] Matt [Thompson] and the entire ‘Archer’ team at Floyd County have done to keep this series so insanely funny and vital through seven seasons,” says Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “The move to Los Angeles this past season as private detectives was just the latest twist in Archer’s legendary exploits, and the next three seasons will be just as amazing and unpredictable. We are thrilled to continue making great TV with our friends and colleagues at Floyd County.”
Archer features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as private detective and former spy Sterling Archer and Aisha Tyler as his colleague and occasional girlfriend Lana Kane. Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Reed and Lucky Yates also star.
