FX Networks today announced a pickup of three additional seasons for the racy FX spy comedy “Archer.” The animated program, which wrapped up its seventh season earlier this month, will return for an eight-episode season eight in 2017, to be followed by two additional eight-episode seasons.
Created by Adam Reed, the series revolves around a family-run agency of spies turned private detectives. Reed executive produces along with Matt Thompson.
Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, announced the renewal.
“We can’t say enough about what Adam, Matt and the entire Archer team at Floyd County have done to keep this series so insanely funny and vital through seven seasons,” said Grad. “The move to Los Angeles this past season as private detectives was just the latest twist in ‘Archer’s’ legendary exploits and the next three seasons will to be just as amazing and unpredictable. We are thrilled to continue making great TV with our friends and colleagues at Floyd County.”
