Our first look at Archer Season 7 memorably recreated Magnum P.I. shot for shot, albeit only offering a few clues toward the team’s newest iteration. Now, “Hollywood’s Biggest Dicks” have arrived in the first first Season 7 trailer, opening up a detective agency on the West Coast.
FX’s Archer made up for a late start to the year with an impressive shot-for-shot remake of the Magnum P.I. opening credits, but it seems the Tom Selleck spoof was more than homage. Our first Season 7 details confirm the former spy team will move to California to start a new agency, with guest turns from J.K. Simmons to Patton Oswalt.
Archer took a bit longer than usual getting back to business in Season 7, promising a new direction on the road to its March premiere. We can’t say for sure that direction will be adapting every episode of Magnum P.I. shot for shot, but nevertheless, add it to the ranks of the FX animated comedy’s pitch-perfect parodies.
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.
