FX has renewed the fantastic animated comedy series Archer for a sixth season—and a seventh. The network has given a two-season renewal to the show, per THR, ensuring a rich syndication deal and leaving open the possibility for even more seasons past the seventh. The series is a consistent ratings hit in the all-important 18-49 demo, ranking as the second-highest rated basic cable comedy series on TV. By picking up two more 13-episode seasons of Archer, the show’s number of total episodes will put it past the threshold needed to qualify for syndication, meaning previous episodes of the series will now be able to air on cable and broadcast syndication.
Created by Adam Reed and Matth Thompson, the series took a huge gamble in its current fifth season by basically blowing up the central premise of the show and starting over from scratch. The result—subtitled Archer: Vice—is a hilariously ridiculous new conceit buoyed by the sharp writing and excellent voice cast, which is led by Bob’s Burgers voice actor H. Jon Benjamin as the titular character. The season five finale will air on FX April 21st, and one imagines season six will return January of next year.
