A new trailer has been released for season seven of the animated comedy Archer which perfectly mirrors the opening of the hit ’80s TV series Magnum, P.I., which starred Tom Selleck and followed a private investigator living the life in Hawaii and taking on various jobs. The show had a solid run, airing from 1980 to 1988.
The new season of the show, which follows secret agent Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) and the other employees of an international spy agency, is set to arrive on FX starting on March 31st. Click on over to the other side now check out the trailer below.
Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around a spy agency and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous, every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain.
The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin asthe highly skilled and incredibly vain master spy, “Sterling Archer;” Aisha Tyler as Archer’s fellow agent and ex-girlfriend, “Lana Kane;” Jessica Walter as Archer’s domineering mother and spy agency director, “Malory Archer;” Chris Parnell as the easily intimidated comptroller-turned secret agent, “Cyril Figgis;” Judy Greer as Malory’s loquacious, dingbat secretary, “Cheryl;” Amber Nash as the discordant director of human resources, “Pam Poovey;” Adam Reed as the gay voice of reason, “Ray Gillette;” and Lucky Yates as the spy agency’s possibly mad scientist/ possibly clone of himself, “Krieger.”
As an added bonus, someone has already made a video that plays the new Archer trailer right next to the previously mentioned Magnum, P.I. opening, so you can watch that below as well after giving the trailer itself a peek.
