FXX has greenlit veteran animated series for a 12th season, which follows Sterling Archer and his return to the spy world after a three-year coma. While many things changed during his absence, Archer (voice of H. Jon Benjamin) is confident it will take just a little time for him to reset things back to the old ways. The problem: does the rest of the team want that?
Debuting in September 2009, “Archer” follows the exploits of a dysfunctional intelligence agency, led by Sterling Archer and seven of his colleagues — his mother Malory Archer (Jessica Walter), Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler), Cyril Figgis (Chris Parnell), Cheryl Tunt (Judy Greer), Pam Poovey (Amber Nash), Ray Gillette (Adam Reed) and Dr. Algernop Krieger (Lucky Yates).
“’Archer’ is back in a big way this season, with viewership up as the Emmy Award-winning spy series returns to its roots and begins to plot a 12th season next year,” said Nick Grad, Co-President, Original Programming, FX Entertainment. “Our thanks to Adam Reed, Matt Thompson, Casey Willis and the entire team at Floyd County Productions for keeping Archer as fun as ever and true to form. Together with its unbelievable voice cast, ‘Archer’ is set to give fans another great season.”
The current eight episode season or “Archer” concludes on Wednesday, October 28.
