A: Archer is the best thing to happen to television since sound. And B through Z: It’s renewed for seasons six and seven. The mentally questionable fan base of the show (hi there) will get their fix at least until 2016 because apparently we haven’t had all we can swallow, yet. Phrasing.
Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, presidents of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, announced the 26 new episodes Thursday, according to Variety. Additionally, fans still have seven episodes remaining for season five, dubbed Archer Vice.
The show centers on the dysfunctional cockamamie staff (phrasing) and agents of the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) that is run by Malory Archer, mother of Sterling Archer, our unbalance hero with mommy issues. Nothing is off limits in the danger zone. This season we’re seeing a lot of drugs (as per usual), loose morals (what else is new), and unexpectedly positive (ish) personal story lines.
According to Deadline, the half-hour series, created by Adam Reed and Matt Thompson, is the second-highest-rated comedy on basic cable among adults 18-49.
“Archer is one of the best comedies on television and has played a significant role in the growth of the FX comedy brand,” said Schrier. ”We’re grateful to Adam Reed, Matt Thompson and their team at Floyd County, and also our incredible voice cast, and are looking forward to supporting their work for at least two more seasons.”
Archer has been nominated for multiple Annie nominations including Outstanding Achievement in Storyboarding in an Animated TV/Broadcast Production and Best General Audience Animated Television Production, and one Emmy for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance.
