Archer’s 11th season will no longer premiere on May 6th and will instead premiere sometime later this year as a result of issues stemming from remote working conditions brought on by the #stayhome directive in an attempt to stave off the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
The announcement was released today by FX Networks, and while production on the 11th season is still ongoing, delays have arisen as a result of the aforementioned new working arrangements.
FXX’s Archer is an original animated, half-hour comedy that, in its tenth season, follows Sterling Archer, Lana Kane and their crew of acid-tongued misfits onboard the M/V Seamus salvage ship. An important question arises as they explore deep space and try to outsmart giant aliens, intergalactic pirates and vicious bounty hunters: how do they survive each other?
The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the hard-drinking Captain, “Sterling Archer;” Aisha Tyler as Archer’s Co-Captain and short-tempered ex-wife, “Lana Kane;” Jessica Walter as Archer’s mother and ball of energy, “Malory Archer;” Judy Greer as the eagle-eye fighter pilot, “Cheryl/Carol Tunt;” Chris Parnell as the attention-seeking First Mate, “Cyril Figgis;” Amber Nash as the crew’s rock monster muscle, “Pam Poovey;” Adam Reed as the out-of-place-in-space courtesan, “Ray Gillette;” and Lucky Yates as the synthetic human with questionable morals, “Algernop Krieger.”
