Adam Reed Says ‘Archer’ Will ‘Unreboot’ for Next Season


The latest season of Archer transformed the animated espionage show into a tale of cocaine dealers, but according to show creator Adam Reed, the sixth season will go back to the old Archer premise. “I think this next season we will sort of unreboot, or whatever – deboot, and get back to the basics of some spy missions,” Reed told EW. Next season won’t be totally the same, though: “Lana’s going to have a baby, so I see some funny things with getting her co-workers to babysit,” Reed said. “I wrote this down the other day: ‘Somebody walks in on Pam chewing up Vienna sausages and then spitting them into the baby’s mouth like a gorilla.’ They’re like, ‘What are you doing?’ And she’s like, ‘This is how I always do it!’” So there you have it – next season of Archer will go back to the basics with some added new mother-themed flair.
