FX Renews Archer for Season 4


A thermos full of maple syrup to celebrate!

FX's Archer is out of the... daaaaaaanger zone. The network today announced its order for a fourth season of the animated spy comedy that celebrates all sorts of naughtiness. Season 4 will consist of 13 episodes.

The renewal was accompanied by a two-year production deal with Archer creators Adam Reed and Matt Thompson, as well as their animation studio Floyd County Productions. This means that Reed and Thompson will continue to work with FX over the next couple of years on more Archer and/or any other projects they develop. FX hooked itself a great one. More Adam Reed, who also created the hilarious Sealab 2021, is always a good thing.

Still no word on the fate of new animated show Unsupervised, which isn't looking good for renewal.

Archer airs Thursdays nights at 10pm on FX.

FX needs to give these guys more than 13 episodes a season. They're killing me with these peanuts.

Archer is a great show. The article mentions Sealab 2021, but Frisky Dingo was so much better, also by Adam Reed and Matt Thompson. Unsupervised was not funny. Let it die.

Awsome news, Archer is one of my favourite shows.



I hope Unsupervised gets a second season, I like the two optimistic idiots.

Yes, Archer continues to get better and FX supports it! I hate to say it, but FX is, in this case, better than Adult Swim who generally don't support their shows all that well, even when they do well. They give like 2 or 3 seasons of dribbling content, 7-episodes per season and then 2 years later a little more, I know it's because of the oddities of their low budget, but it doesn't feel like it develops quality as much as it should. So for Archer to take off on FX is a great thing!

Love the show, and so glad you guys recommended it as a 'catch up' for the winter holidays (thanks)! More than anything I like the 'little things' in this show, like the throaty "yuuuuup!" and the "I know, right?"s, but of course the show as a whole is quite hilarious.

I'm very glad to hear that FX is picking up Archer for a fourth season. Now they need to do the same for Justified.
