Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, announced that the hit FX series, Archer has been renewed for not one, but three whole new seasons.
Archer will return for an eight-episode season 8 in early 2017, followed by two additional eight-episode seasons. FX Networks has also reached a new overall production deal with Floyd County Productions.
Grad spoke on the news of Archer‘s renewed season announcement:
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. 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 series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the highly skilled and incredibly vain private eye “Sterling Archer;” Aisha Tyler as Archer’s fellow detective and on-again-off-again girlfriend, “Lana Kane;” Jessica Walter as Archer’s domineering mother and former spy agency director, “Malory Archer;” Chris Parnell as the agency owner and lead investigator “Cyril Figgis;” Judy Greer as the agency’s loquacious, dingbat secretary, “Cheryl;” Amber Nash as the gruff but lovable muscle, “Pam Poovey;” Adam Reed as the gay voice of reason, “Ray Gillette;” and Lucky Yates as the firm’s possibly mad scientist/possible clone of himself, “Krieger.”
Archer was created by Adam Reed and Floyd County Productions and is executive produced by Reed and Matt Thompson. The show is produced by FX Productions.
Archer season 8 is slated to commence in early 2017 on FX
