One wonders if Archer Season 8 will actually take time to spell out the nature of its Dreamland makeover, but a flurry of new trailers should also help do the trick. Probe the noir world of Season 8 a little more deeply with not one, but six new trailers for the April premiere, including some fresh looks at characters we haven’t seen much of yet.
There’s a mystery dancing around the edges of Archer Season 8, which reboots its core cast and premise to that of a noir Dreamland after that deadly Season 7 cliffhanger. There’s plenty of mystery in Dreamland as well, judging by the first full trailer.
And lo, FX has descended from upon the mountain to lay out our TV future for the next few months. Schedule-wise, at least, we know know when The Americans and their quaint Russian spy antics will return for Season 5, as well when Archer will enter “Dreamland” in the spring.
Yesterday brought word that Archer would be moving to FXX for Season 8 (albeit without a formal premiere date beyond “spring”), and a first look at the new “Dreamland” setting more than ensures we’ll follow. Watch Sterling and co. give their best noir in new promos for the Season 8 premiere!
Archer Season 8 seemed pretty touch-and-go for a few minutes last year, between that cliffhanger ending and a delayed renewal, and now another notable change seems to be afoot. Archer will follow a number of FX comedies in making the move to FXX, getting closer to a spring 2017 premiere for Season 8.
The seventh season finale of Archer left it … unclear how the series would proceed with its title character, even if a three-season renewal guaranteed it. Now, all is revealed, as a complete and total reset of the series will give Archer a dreamy new setting in Season 8.
FX’s Archer renewal came down to the wire this year, though a three-season guarantee through 2019 pretty well ensured Sterling would live through that Season 7 cliffhanger. Still, creators believe Season 10 will likely be the last for the team, potentially even with shortened episode runs at that.
Boy howdy, is it a good thing FX opted to renew Archer for three seasons, lest Comic-Con 2016 get seriously awkward. The animated spy comedy will officially take aim at Comic-Con 2016 with a full appearance, along with an early look at The Strain Season 3, but what’s missing from the lineup?
Anyone keeping up with the seventh season of FX’s Archer likely panicked over its finale cliffhanger, especially as the network had yet to confirm additional seasons. Now, Figgis Detective Agency (or whatever we’re doing next) will be back in spades, as FX confirms a whopping three (!) more seasons for Archer.
After a delayed start in 2016, this Thursday will see the Archer gang returning in yet another new role, the days of organized spywork largely behind them. And while we wouldn’t expect “ISIS” to return anytime soon, creator Adam Reed says the team will stick to their new line of private eye work beyond Season 7, while talk of a movie and series’ ending begins to swirl.
