FXX has released the first trailer for the new season of Archer. Titled "Archer: Dreamland", the new season will take place in 1947 L.A. and have Archer trying to find his partner’s killer. As you can see from the trailer, the show looks as delightfully insane as always, and I’m glad that the writers are just now running with transplanting Archer into various genres rather than just rehashing spins on the spy genre. While I’m sure they could have done it, that approach would have lost its appeal over time. This way, the show stays fresh while retaining its signature sense of humor. I also like that they’re putting the characters in new roles that fit them. It should be interesting to see how they balance the personalities with the noir setting, and how many callbacks there will be now that the show has an entirely new setting. READ MORE...
The show’s done spy-fi. It’s done ‘80s P.I. shows . And now, the latest target of Sterling Archer and friends is the seedy world of noir. It looks incredible . We’d gotten a hint of the show’s new premise in a few short promos recently , but now Entertainment Weekly has released the first full trailer for the next season of the show, its first on FXX—and it’s a pretty radical re-imagining of the cast and premise we love, which is saying something considering how much the show has loved tinkering with its settings in the past few seasons. ...Read More... http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/JT0EI6FOeUc/archer-goes-full-on-noir-in-the-first-trailer-for-seaso-1792481616

Calling Archer an animated secret-agent comedy is accurate, but it leaves out so much. The snarky characters, the esoteric references, and the classic art style mean its a show as unique as it is hilarious. Now you can get a fully illustrated behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show with The Art of Archer . ...Read More... http://feeds.gawker.com/~r/io9/full/~3/e94DrR3RSUM/the-art-of-archer-peeks-into-the-coolest-booziest-supe-1789580607
As great as Netflix’s original live-action series are, they tend to overshadow the streaming giant’s excellent original animated shows. Thankfully that trend is starting to change as the company embraces new and emerging voices in the world of animation. (Hey, you know who also gets overlooked? Australians! Amirite?) So it’s with that in mind that we happily bring you the exclusive first trailer for their new original animated comedy series, Pacific Heat! From Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner and Rob Sitch, the creative and hilarious minds of the award-winning Working Dog team, Pacific Heat follows "an unconventional, covert unit of police investigators fighting crime along the glitzy ‘Gold Coast’ of Australia." For those of you who are familiar with Archer, Pacific Heat feels like it’s cast in that same mold, providing a Down Under companion to that long-running super spy comedy cartoon. And honestly, who doesn’t love Australian accents? It’s worth a watch for that alone! READ MORE...

The next three seasons of Archer will probably be its last, according to the showrunner. The shows 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 dont know that anybody has talked about that, but that is definitely my plan to do 8, 9 and 10 and theyre 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 theyre gonna be different from each other. ...Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/archer-ending-season-10-show-creator-says-fx/
