This is news that has me hunting for Malory Archer’s (Jessica Walter) drink cabinet. Archer creator Adam Reed revealed on the Murmur podcast that the animated FX spy series will end after season 10.
“The plan is to end Archer after season 10. I don’t know that anybody has talked about that, but that is definitely my plan – to do 8, 9, and 10 and they’re gonna be each shorter seasons of just eight episodes – and then wind it up.”
Apparently, Archer could have ended much sooner than season 10.
“I was gonna end it after 8, but then I had sort of a brain explosion of a way that I could do three more seasons and really keep my interest up. So the three seasons that are coming up are gonna be pretty different from what has come before, and they’re gonna be different from each other.”
The series wrapped Season 7 in June, which found the team solving cases as private investigators in Hollywood.
Archer is voiced by H. Jon Benjamin (Archer), Aisha Tyler (Lana Kane), Judy Greer (Cheryl), Amber Nash (Pam), Chris Parnell (Cyril) and Lucky Yates (Doctor Krieger). Reed himself voices Ray Gillette.
