Sad news direct from the creative director of The Figgis Agency – Adam Reed, creator of “Archer” has indicated that Archer’s days are numbered, specifically, in three more seasons of eight episodes apiece that will finally end in what will undoubtedly be a blaze of glory in Season 10. The series recently won its first-ever Emmy Award last month.
Reed, speaking in a recent podcast on Murmur radio said:
“The plan is to end Archer after season 10. I don’t know that anybody has talked about that, but that is definitely my plan – to do 8, 9, and 10 and they’re gonna be each shorter seasons of just eight episodes – and then wind it up. … I was gonna end it after 8, but then I had sort of a brain explosion of a way that I could do three more seasons and really keep my interest up. So the three seasons that are coming up are gonna be pretty different from what has come before, and they’re gonna be different from each other.”
Season Eight is currently slated to begin on FX in January 2017.The thread view count is
