Archer renewed for three more seasons on FX
FX has renewed animated comedy Archer for three more seasons, the network announced Tuesday.
Archer, which hails from Adam Reed and Matt Thompson, will return for an eight-episode eighth season in early 2017, followed by two more eight-episode seasons. The news comes as FX has reached a new overall production deal with Floyd County Productions, which produces the series.
“We can’t say enough about what Adam, Matt, and the entire Archer team at Floyd County have done to keep this series so insanely funny and vital through seven seasons,” said Nick Grad, FX president of original programming. “The move to Los Angeles this past season as private detectives was just the latest twist in Archer’s legendary exploits, and the next three seasons will to be just as amazing and unpredictable. We are thrilled to continue making great TV with our friends and colleagues at Floyd County.”
The animated comedy, which centers on the lives of those who work at the former spy agency-turned-private investigation firm, features a voice cast including H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Judy Greer, and Chris Parnell, among others.
