FX Renews ‘Archer’ for a Fifth Season


The FX network announced today that it’s ordered a fifth season of its critically-acclaimed animated spy comedy Archer, one of TV’s smartest and funniest shows. The show, created by Adam Reed and boasting a voice cast that includes Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Chris Parnell, and Jessica Walter, is currently in the midst of its fourth season, which has been earning record ratings and experiencing big gains over the previous one. There are currently seven episodes remaining in Archer’s current season, which concludes April 11th. Like the last couple seasons of the show, the new fifth season will consist of 13 episodes. No premiere date is set, but the new season should be coming your way sometime in 2014. Don’t get greedy; there are already new Archer episodes going on right now, you impatient jerks.
