Archer is here to stay, at least for two more years.
The show has undergone a pretty dramatic transformation this past season with its “Archer Vice” plotline that has ditched the ISIS origins of the show. But FX loves Archer and whatever it’s doing, and it’s just been renewed for two more seasons. Here’s their statement:
“Archer is one of the best comedies on television and has played a significant role in the growth of the FX comedy brand,” Eric Schrier, one of the presidents of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, said today in a statement. ”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’m curious as to where the show is going to go from here. I can’t imagine they’ll do another Vice season, but will they go back to ISIS? Will they have some new wonky plotline instead? Archer Roadhouse? Archer Trek? It could be anything, really.
FX sticks with their best shows for the long haul, particularly comedies. Could we see Archer run for ten seasons like Always Sunny? At this point, it seems likely.
