Why Did the Fx Network Renew Archer Season 13?
John Landgraf, chairman of FX Networks, said earlier that he was “optimistic” that the show would come back soon. Now, the wait is over because the network has renewed the show.
Over the course of 12 seasons, this show has gotten better at telling a story, which has helped it get a lot of viewers from all over the world. Because of how the show's creators have handled the characters and the plot, the viewers have become die-hard fans.
According to Deadline, Nick Grad, FX's President of Original Programming, said, “Archer is still one of our most popular shows, and we're happy to continue its legacy with another season that takes us all over the world.”
“Just like Sterling Archer, Adam Reed, Matt Thompson, Casey Willis, and the rest of the Floyd County Productions team are always coming up with new ideas and finding ways to top themselves. We'd like to thank them and the amazing voice actors who keep this fan-favorite spy comedy as exciting and new as ever.”
Thompson and Willis also said, “On behalf of our whole team of talented illustrators, animators, writers, and actors, I just wanted to say… oh, damn. I was going to say something. Nope. Lost it. So… I guess just thanks?”
The Plot of Archer Season 13
In the series, Sterling Archer tries to figure out how the spy world is changing. This season, Archer and the rest of the crew have to deal with a new threat: a spy group called IIA (International Intelligence Agency).
With only a few spy jobs to go around, Archer's mom-and-pop spy agency is in competition with the heartless vultures of IIA. Will Archer's spy agency be the next to be eaten alive?
Mission: Difficult is the eighth episode of Archer's 12th season. It came out on October 6, 2021. Based on how Season 12 of Archer ended, we can make some pretty good guesses about what will happen in the next episode and what it will be about.
“Archer is trapped inside IIA headquarters, and Barry is trapped inside Other Barry,” says the episode's official summary. Megan Johnson is in charge of the episode, and Mark Ganek wrote it. It is thought that about 0.19 million people in the U.S. watched the season finale.
So, viewers thought that the show would pick up some of the most important storylines from the previous seasons to learn more about the characters and their own story arcs. Also, the network just released the official plot summary for Archer Season 13.
It says that Archer is an animated half-hour comedy that follows Sterling Archer as he deals with the changing spy world. Fabian Kingsworth and the spy company IIA have bought Archer and The Agency (International Intelligence Agency) this season.
As the group tries to figure out who they are while doing strange jobs for Fabian, one question comes up: Will they be able to stay independent, or will they give in to their corporate masters?
