FX has released a flurry of news from the ongoing Television Critics Association press tour, between a renewed Strain and its hottest premieres, but the latest news might prove more worrisome. After six seasons, Archer will move to FXX (gaining a new companion series), while FX has officially granted Louie star Pamela Adlon her own series.
Earlier this week, we were saddened to learn of the passing of Archer voice and original SNL castmember George Coe, at the age of 86. And while Coe (and his character Woodhouse)’s contributions often went unappreciated on the animated FX spy comedy, the network has compiled the late actor’s work to pay tribute.
A sad day for fans of George Coe and his extensive body of work, as the Oscar-nominated 86-year old actor and activist has passed away. The lifelong star was recently known for his work as Archer’s ever-faithful servant Woodhouse, and also dates back to the original cast of SNL.
FX’s ‘Archer’ has sustained plenty of impressive guest voices over the years, but rarely does the script flip to see the rest of the world become animated. That said, watch Conan O’Brien get a sexual thrill out of killing in an ‘Archer’-ized short against Russian mobsters!
The ‘Archer’ gang will beat its 2015 FX brethren to the punch with a season 6 premiere as early as Thursday, but the former ISIS gang won’t leave any network stars behind. Not only has ‘The Americans’ star Matthew Rhys been tapped as a guest star for the animated spy comedy’s sixth season, but so too has ‘Sons of Anarchy’'s CCH Pounder, and ‘Community’ guest Keith David.
Now that 'Sons of Anarchy' has come to a close, FX's year ahead looks brighter than ever, bringing with it premieres for the final season of 'Justified,' 'Archer''s sixth year, and 'The Americans'' return. That said, comedy may win the day, as a new FX trailer previews our first look at Zach Galifianakis and Louis C.K.'s 'Baskets,' along with Denis Leary's return in 'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.'
We’ve not yet crossed Thanksgiving into December, but the rapidly-approaching 2015 slate of FX and FXX’s returning series has us ready for the new year. The cable networks have officially scheduled the season 6 premiere of ‘Archer,’ as well as the sixth and final season premiere of ‘Justified’ for January 2015, along with a third year for ‘The Americans,’ 10th for ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ and more.
FX's 'Archer' dropped the spy schtick from its previous season to shake things up with a little more 'Vice,' but there's nothing wrong with getting back to business, as evidenced by the first season 6 teaser trailer. Watch Sterling, Lana, Pam, Cyril, Ray, Krieger, Cheryl Carol and the rest get back to work at ISI...uh, spy stuff, in the first look at 'Archer''s new season in 2015!
By now we've seen 'The Simpsons' tackling a number of pop-culture funhouse mirrors of themselves, from the recent 'Family Guy' crossover to last season's LEGO installment, and this year's "Treehouse of Horror" is no different. Watch Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie meet not only their Tracey Ullman counterparts, but countless more parodying anime, 'Adventure Time,' 'Archer' and more from last night's Halloween special!
A few weeks ago saw Warner Bros. unleashing its full docket of Comic-Con 2014 panels, but 20th Century Fox and the fine folk at FX are certainly no slouches.
