‘Archer’ on FX to End After Season 10

Season Eight of the Animated Sitcom Will Move to FXX in January 2017

Animated FX sitcom “Archer,” which won its first Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program last month, will conclude after season 10, according to the show’s creator, Adam Reed. “The plan is to end ‘Archer’ after Season 10,” Reed stated in an interview with Modern School of Film’s Murmur podcast. “I don’t know that anybody has talked about that, but that is definitely my plan – to do eight, nine, and ten, and they’re gonna be each shorter seasons of just eight episodes – and then wind it up. I was gonna end it after 8, but then I had sort of a brain explosion of a way that I could do three more seasons and really keep my interest up. So the three seasons that are coming up will be pretty different from what has come before.”

Debuting on Jan. 14, 2010, “Archer” will move to FX’s sister network FXX in January 2017.
