Fans of the TV show “Archer” will be treated to yet another adventure in the dangerous zone. The animated spy comedy “Archer,” developed by Adam Reed, has been formally renewed for a third season on FX Networks, according to Deadline.
With Sterling Archer as the main character, we get to meet the world’s greatest secret agent, who also happens to be cynical, unprofessional, and possibly an alcoholic.
Archer is currently working by the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS), which is directed by his irritable mother, Malory, from whom Archer inherited his drinking and addiction.
Archer and his inept band of espionage agents and support workers embark on international espionage missions that frequently go catastrophically wrong and end in humorous mishaps and errors.
“Archer” has become a fan favorite among television viewers since its debut in 2009, and the series has consistently rated high on lists of the greatest cartoons of all time issued by TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly, among other publications.
When fans learned that Reed planned to terminate “Archer” after Season 10 in 2016, they were probably surprised. (Image courtesy of TV Line). Fortunately, because to a rise in viewership from Season 10 to 11, as reported by Variety, this was not the case, and Season 13 of “Archer” would feature even more sexual innuendos and one-liners.
Adam Reed created the American adult animated sitcom Archer on FX. Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) and seven of his coworkers—his mother/boss Malory Archer (Jessica Walter), Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler), Cyril Figgis (Chris Parnell), Cheryl Tunt (Judy Greer), Pam Poovey (Amber Nash), Ray Gillette (Adam Reed), and Dr. Algernop Krieger—follow the exploits of a dysfunctional (Lucky Yates).
The show parodies espionage, culture and society, and the human condition in an antiquated, Cold War-esque environment.
Archer is notable for its artistic reinvention in recent episodes, which foregoes the typical format of a workplace sitcom in favor of self-contained anthologies. After the tenth season, it returned to its spy parody beginnings.
Archer was conceptualized immediately after Reed’s Adult Swim sitcom Frisky Dingo was canceled. His vision for the show was informed by his holiday in Spain and the influence of media franchises such as the James Bond series.
Pop culture reference-heavy humor, rapid-fire dialogue, and meta-comedy are all characteristics. Archer is animated in a constrained animation style that is reminiscent of mid-century comic art. The show uses a rotating cast for minor roles, and actors record their lines individually.
The show has aired 126 episodes since its start on September 17, 2009. Archer has been airing new episodes on sister network FXX since 2017, with the twelfth season set to premiere on August 25, 2021. The series got renewed for a thirteenth season in September 2021.
Critics have praised Archer, and the show has won numerous honors, including four Primetime Emmy Awards and four Critics Choice Awards. It’s also been nominated for 15 Annie Awards, including for outstanding achievement in animation, screenplay, direction, and voice acting, among other categories. As a result of the show’s continued success, a variety of licensed media has been created or suggested.
Season 13 of Archer has been renewed
Archer has been renewed for a 13th season in 2022. THE UNITED TIMES DAILY (LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, September 28, 2021) The Emmy Award-winning animated sitcom Archer will return for a 13th season on FX’s FXX channel, according to Nick Grad, President, Original Programming, FX. The new eight-episode season will air on FXX and be available to stream the following day on FX on Hulu in 2022, similar to the current 12th season.

Season 13 of “Archer” is planned to air in the not-too-distant future, although no release date has been determined as of yet. Season 13 will launch on FXX sometime in 2022, according to the previously stated Deadline source, and will consist of an eight-episode season.
The article doesn’t go into much detail beyond that, but based on previous seasons of the program, we can make an educated prediction as to when Season 13 of “Archer” will premiere.
Seasons of “Archer” appear to premiere roughly a year after the previous season ends, thus with Season 12 ending in October, we may expect Season 13 to premiere anywhere between September and November 2022, depending on when Season 12 ended.
There have been rare anomalies to this release timetable, such as when Season 11’s launch was postponed by more than a year due to the US COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully, the epidemic will have little impact on the production of “Archer” Season 13, and we will be able to watch the animated spy comedy sooner rather than later.
