‘Archer’ to End After Season 10, Says Show Creator

FX has already renewed animated comedy for three more seasons


The next three seasons of “Archer” will probably be its last, according to the showrunner.

The show’s creator, Adam Reed, recently told the Murmur Podcast that his plan is to end the show 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,” Reed said, according to SplitSider. “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 timeline would fit since FX renewed the show for three more seasons all at once in June, announcing that an eight-episode Season 8 will premiere on the network in 2017.

“Archer” revolves around a former spy agency turned private investigation firm and the lives of its employees. The Figgis Agency presented all new challenges for the former spies in Season 7, the most difficult of which might have been the move to Los Angeles. Every seedy surveillance of a suspected adulterer or investigation into insurance fraud was actually just another excuse for the staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain.

“Archer” was created by Reed and Floyd County Productions ,and is executive produced by Reed and Thompson. The show is produced by FX Productions. The network has also signed a new overall deal with Floyd County Productions.
