FX Networks has finally moved its animated Archer TV show to FXX. Will the audience follow? Fans shouldn’t have to worry whether Archer is cancelled or renewed for season nine, because it was picked up through season 10, back in June of 2016, and creator Adam Reed says it will end there. We’re still keeping an eye on the ratings though, and not just because it is fun. Even renewals can be cancelled, so stay tuned.
An adult animated spy 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. Taking place in 1947 Los Angeles, the story revolves around former agent, and now private investigator, Sterling Archer. In season eight, he’s on the hunt for his partner’s killer. Now, he finds himself caught in the struggle between the city’s organized crime factions. Each clue pulls him away from his primary cause. Archer is soon embroiled in a mystery involving kidnapping, the sex trade, and drugs.
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.
