Archer Moves To FXX For Season 8

Archer is still going strong and despite the fact that some audiences and critics weren’t huge fans of certain spins over the last few years, it’s easily one of the best animated shows (and shows) currently airing.

It recently received an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program, and was nominated for a Critics Choice Award (and should have won), and we now learn that show will be moving to FXX for season 8.

“Archer is an awesome addition to the growing slate of original comedies on FXX, where it will join It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Man Seeking Woman and You’re the Worst,” said Chuck Saftler, President of Program Strategy and COO, FX Networks, “Adam Reed, Matt Thompson and Floyd County continue to make one of the funniest shows on television and it’s great to see them earn the awards and acclaim that comes with one of the most loyal and avid fan bases in the industry.”

Though the show has undergone some twists and turns when it comes to the overall plot, it continues with Sterling Archer‘s quest to find his partner’s killer in 1947 Los Angeles. Unraveling the case leads Archer in directions that are largely unimaginable, and involve the city’s most powerful crime bosses.

The show is still hilarious, which is really saying something for something working episodic, animated content that has gone on this long. The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin, Jessica Walter, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Chris Parnell, Amber Nash, Adam Reed and Lucky Yates.

Archer returns in spring, and you can catch up on Netflix and other streaming services.
