FX Networks moved the animated Archer TV show to FXX in 2017, and the ratings have yet to recover. Whether Archer will be cancelled or renewed for season 11 may not depend on its Nielsen numbers, though. Creator Adam Reed has been saying for a few years that the series will end here. FXX hasn’t confirmed that however, so it could just be that Reed end his involvement, yet the show will go on. While we wait for more final news, we’re still keeping an eye on the ratings, so stay tuned. *Status update below.
An adult animated comedy, Archer began with the spies of the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS). The FXX voice cast includes: H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Lucky Yates, and Adam Reed. The tenth season, Archer: 1999 kicks off with misfits aboard the M/V Seamus salvage ship. As they explore deep space and try to outwit giant aliens, intergalactic pirates, and brutal bounty hunters they start to wonder how they’ll survive one another.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
