The series is executive produced by Reed, Casey Willis (The Xtacles), and Matt Thompson (High Noon Toons), and the upcoming season is to premiere on FXX on September 16 with next-day streaming options through FX on Hulu.

Archer is an adult animated television series that centers on the exploits of an often-corrupt, disorganized, and small intelligence agency run by Malory Archer. Malory’s son Sterling is the show’s main character who merges a James Bond personality with narcissistic overtones. Malory is voiced by Jessica Walter (Arrested Development) while Sterling is voiced by H. Jon Benjamin (Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy). Additional cast includes the likes of Judy Greer (13 Going on 30, Kidding) as Cheryl Tunt, Amber Nash (Frisky Dingo) as Pam Poovey, Aisha Tyler (Criminal Minds) as Lana Kane, Lucky Yates (Good Eats) as Dr. Algernop Krieger, Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Rick and Morty) as Cyril Figgis, and Reed himself as Ray Gillette. The animated show is also known for some of its seasons taking on new titles and new settings such as season five set in Miami and aptly titled Archer: Vice in addition to season eight’s Archer: Dreamland, season nine’s Archer: Danger Island, and season ten’s Archer: 1999.
Season eleven of Archer follows the return of Sterling to the agency after waking up from a coma and relearning how to walk. Unlike the previous three seasons, it has not been announced whether or not this iteration will also carry a different title. For Archer and television fans, check out the trailer below:
