Initially, the riotously funny cast of Archer came by the EW hideout at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the show’s upcoming sixth season. After the madness of season five’s Archer Vice, there was no telling what to expect from the animated spy comedy.
However, there’s also no telling what the Archer cast is going to say when you put them all in a room together. Fortunately, EW had a camera running.
Here’s the video, with a full transcript below.
Entertainment Weekly: Jon, Archer is a father now, a confirmed father. How does that change him? »

Update: Collider had a chance to speak with showrunner Adam Reed shortly before the Comic-Con panel. He shed some light on new developments for season 6. For one, guest voice-actress Alison Tolman will be playing Pam’s sister in an episode when, “They go home for Pam’s sister’s wedding, and she takes Archer as her date. And then things go…horribly wrong.”
Additionally, expect more of everyone’s favorite cyborg. Barry’s back, said Reed:
“Barry comes back in a big way. And he’s gonna be, I think, probably the key villain of the season. But things pretty quickly go really badly also for Barry…physically.”
Original: “Lana? Lana? [deep breath] Lanaaaa!” “What?” Oh right – now that I’ve got your attention, Archer came to Comic-Con this year, and it was pretty awesome. At the panel, audiences got a sneak peek at the opener for the beloved spy comedy’s »

There is more cause for celebration in the Archer camp today, as the show follows up its rare double season order with a Comedy Central syndication deal. Having confirmed production of the sixth and seventh season of the award-winning animated comedy, FX’s grand plans for Archer continue apace, with a move that will hopefully bring the bumbling international spy agency to a brand new set of audiences.
In a development that mirrors its live-action FX sibling, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Archer will find its off-network home with Comedy Central, now that they have agreed terms with Twentieth Television. Those terms cover all five existing seasons of the show, as well as a commitment to future seasons – which is good news for new and potential audiences, who may be slightly confused by the current fifth season Archer Vice re-vamp. With an exclusive pre-midnight window for the first two years of the deal, »

In this wild and wacky season of Archer Vice, Isis matriarch, Malory (Jessica Walter) has endured her role as the plot pusher, but she’s also taken more of a supportive role this season. That doesn’t mean she hasn’t had her set of conflicts to deal with. She is desperately trying to find a way to make money off of the shit-ton of cocaine they have stashed in the Tunt Manor, but it’s dwindling because Pam (Amber Nash) keeps eating it. Now she has been forced her to milk what she can of Cheryl’s (Judy Greer) talents singing country songs as her latest alter ego, Cherlene.
If that’s not enough, Malory has also been dumped by her husband, Ron Cadillac (played by Walter’s real life husband, Ron Leibman), is reminding Lana (Aisha Tyler) of the mistake she has growing in her belly and for »

While we’re sure that Sterling Archer – gloriously self-centred animated star that he is – would not be in the least bit surprised at the popularity of his show, the news of a two-season renewal for Archer is pretty big. At a time when networks and studios are being increasingly cautious with their commitments, ordering a further 26 episodes of anything is a huge vote of confidence.
The award-winning show premiered in January 2010, and is now enjoying an increase in viewership in its fifth season. The original premise of the show centred on the titular egotistical master spy, and his exploits as an agent of Isis (International Secret Intelligence Service). He is helped and hindered in equal measure by his ex-girlfriend and fellow agent, Lana Kane, and his boss – who is also his mother – Malory Archer. A supporting cast of wonderfully dysfunctional characters help to make each episode hilariously off-the-wall.

Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, presidents of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, announced Thursday that FX has ordered 13 episodes for both the sixth and seventh seasons of the Emmy and Annie Award nominated series.
Seven episodes still remain in season five of “Archer,” with the finale slated to air April 21 at 10 p.m.
The half-hour laffer, which revolves around the employees of the International Secret Intelligence spy agency, currently ranks as the second highest-rated comedy in basic cable in delivery of adults 18-49 and adults 18-34. H. Jon Benjamin provides the voice of master spy Sterling Archer and the ensemble voice cast also includes Aisha Tyler, »

When a comedy has enjoyed some longevity, a long-running gag can either get tired or crescendo triumphantly to an ultimate payoff. On tonight’s Archer, that time where all of the nods to “Danger Zone” came to a head as Kenny Loggins, yes, that Kenny Loggins made a guest appearance as himself as Archer (H.Jon Benjamin) asks him to do a favor. The singer-songwriter has songs that played a big part three of the biggest cult classics in Caddyshack, Footloose and of course, Top Gun.
Currently recording with his new band, Blue Sky Riders (with Gary Burr and Georgia Middleman), Loggins has gone back to creating country rock music like when he started his career with Jim Messina. He described himself as a “total badass,” in the episode and we would concur. “Baby Shower” is one of the season’s funnier episodes and contains another two musical performances by »

For years the cast and crew of the hit animated comedy, Archer have been telling anyone who’ll listen that the show is less a series about spy and espionage and is more about the dynamics of a volatile and dysfunctional work place. Just to ensure this claim, the superb fifth season, airing Monday nights on FX, has been a ballsy departure from the first four seasons after International Secret Intelligence Service (Isis) was dissolved and the cast is stuck sneaking around trying to find a way to make money and get rid of a literal ton of cocaine that was stashed in Malory’s office. Lana is pregnant, Cheryl changes her identity again but this time as a country singer, and Pam has replaced all of the basic four food groups with cocaine. The title of the show has morphed into Archer Vice and is the most thrilling and unpredictable season yet. »
