Are you excited yet?
Set to premiere on April 25th @ 10 pm ET/PT for FXX will be the Emmy-winning franchise Archer: Danger Island.
At Comic-Con it was revealed that Sterling Archer will, in fact, be part of another alternate setting that sees him as a pilot at the start of WW2 that crash lands on an island and meets deviations of the Archer principal cast. The ninth season will have eight episodes and will be on both FXX and FX+.
This season of the animated spy comedy finds Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) as a semi-functioning alcoholic seaplane pilot — a lush on the lush South Pacific island of Mitimotu. It’s 1939, and while the rest of the world is concerned about the looming Second World War, Archer is concerned only with who’s buying his next drink. Along with his trusty co-pilot/sidekick Pam (Amber Nash), Archer must navigate quicksand, cannibals, super-intelligent monkeys, poison darts and pirates in this dangerous and mysterious land.
Jessica Walter plays Archer’s acid-tongued mother and hotel owner; Aisha Tyler is Princess Lanaluakalani, island royalty, and local revolutionary; Judy Greer is the abandoned heiress Charlotte Vandertunt; Chris Parnell is Siegbert Fuchsthe, an obvious German spy posing as a businessman; Adam Reed as the impeccably uniformed French Capitaine Reynaud; and Lucky Yates plus the audacious scarlet macaw Crackers.
Below you can see a killer new digital poster released by FX Networks in anticipation of the new series.
