Archer Season 8 is getting nostalgic this year.
The FXX animated spy comedy television series will go back to the 1940s when it returns for its eighth season in spring. The forthcoming season will revolve around a private detective and former spy Sterling Archer as he hunts the killer of his partner in 1947 Hollywood. Archer’s partner is Woodhouse, which was voiced by the late George Coe. The actor died in 2015.
In the finale of Season 7, Archer was seen dying. Collider notes that the Dreamland subtitle could have a literal meaning, which is Season 8 is taking place inside Archer’s dying dream. The series also features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as Archer and Aisha Tyler as his colleague/girlfriend Lana Kane.
Moreover, FXXX releases the first trailers for Season 8 as well as its official synopsis. It reads:
“Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around the hardboiled private eye Sterling Archer and his quest to find his partner’s killer in 1947 Los Angeles. The case proves to be more difficult than expected after Archer quickly gets mixed up in a deadly game of tug of war between Los Angeles’ most powerful crime bosses. Every clue leads Archer further away from his goal and deeper into a mystery involving kidnapping, prostitution and drug addiction.”
Archer Season 8 has new home
Season 8 has finally moved to its new home. The series has transferred from FX to FXX, where it joins original shows such as It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Man Seeking Woman, and You’re the Worst.
FX previously said the hit spy series will be transferring to FXX for its seventh season in 2016. The show, however, stayed on its mother network. FX and FXXX are sister companies.
Meanwhile, Archer is set to run through Season 10. In September 2016, creator Adam Reed had indicated that he planned to end the series after the tenth season. “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, is to do eight, nine, and 10 … They’re gonna be each shorter seasons of just eight episodes,” he said during an episode of Murmur podcast.
Mark your calendar for the return of Sterling and company on Archer Season 8 in spring.
