Archer is a glorious politically incorrect animated series on the FX network. If you knew that already, then you probably watch and love the show. Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) is a spy who works for his overbearing mother Mallory (Jessica Walter) and is joined by a cast a zany characters, most of which he is trying to sleep with. The show completed its 7th season this year, and hit San Diego Comic Con last weekend. Creator Adam Reed was there along with the entire cast was on hand including Benjamin, Walters, and Aisha Tyler (Lana), Judy Greer (Cheryl), Amber Nash (Pam), Chris Parnell (Cyril), Lucky Yates (Dr. Krieger), and more.
No matter what they like to call themselves, Archer, Lana, Cyril, and the rest of the gang that used to be spies, drug smugglers, and CIA freelancers cannot seem to stick to one job. Of course, just by doing that takes away from the fun of it all. But as Archer season 7 ended on a huge cliffhanger, it was unclear if FX wanted to explore more of what the worst thing that could go wrong for these former spies was.
But worry not as FX wants to make sure that they get a proper ending as the network has officially confirmed that The show will be extended all the way to season 10. However, there is a small catch. There will be less episodes for each season. More on the story below.
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 has rocked the cable universe for 6 seasons and the FX show rode into San Diego Comic-Con for a panel discussion, to prep fans for the upcoming season 7. For those who haven’t dabbled in the “Danger Zone” (cue Kenny Loggins!), Archer is a wonderfully crazy, borderline pornographic, and altogether maniacal frenzy of animated drugs, guns, spies, and sex. It focuses on momma’s boy spy Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin), his on-again, off-again love interest Lana (LANA!!!) played by Aisha Tyler, and their partners in secret spy agency ISIS… yeah, well… until they kinda sorta had to change that.

What always works so well for me in a comedy like Archer is how well developed each and all of the characters are. Guest stars or series regulars, Adam Reed and company nail the interactions between all involved. “Sea Tunt: Part 2” fully capitalizes on some of the exact situations you’d expect to happen when Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) and the rest of the ISIS field agents go to an underwater base. But there are still just enough swerves and twists and turns to make the episode enjoyable and downright hilarious.
