Once Archer made its fifth season a Miami Vice spoof, every season has reinvented the show in a different genre. There was the film noir Archer: Dreamland, the ‘30s serial Archer: Danger Island and more. The upcoming tenth season will be a sci-fi spoof set in deep space and full of aliens.

FXX brought the voice cast and executive producers of Archer to WonderCon to preview the new season. /Film spoke with EPs Matt Thompson and Casey Willis in a press room roundtable to find out more about the new season, coming sometime in 2019.

Archer Danger Island - Archer Season 9 NYCC Panel

Two words: Peanut butter. If I remember anything about what went down at the Archer: Danger Island panel at New York Comic Con Saturday evening, it’s that Lucky Yates (Dr. Krieger) was taught how to poop at age 3, when he opened the refrigerator, spied a jar of peanut butter and…success!

This story, shared by Yates himself, set the tone for what would become a delightfully random panel conversation between actors and apparent friends Aisha Tyler, Amber Nash, and Lucky Yates along with writer Casey Willis and director Bryan Fordney about their hit animated FX series held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in front of a packed audience that extended all the way down the street. While the crowd found this entertaining, the talk focused on the show, which will be celebrating its 9th season premiere early next year. And we got a chance to watch it.

Find out more from the Archer season 9 NYCC panel below. Read More »

2017 Emmys Opening - Stephen Colbert

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards were broadcast on CBS last night, handing out awards to HBO’s Big Little Lies and Veep, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Netflix’s Black Mirror, NBC’s This Is Us, FX’s Atlanta, and many more (get the full list of winners right here). But if you weren’t able to watch, we have the best moments from the show for your viewing pleasure.

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert served as master of ceremonies, opening the show with a musical number and an extensive monologue that featured one surprising guest that not only shocked people, but also made them feel a little uncomfortable. Plus, we get to see Emmy come to life thanks to Ru Paul, and Stephen Colbert breaks down during his hosting gig and needs a little Westworld check-up.

Check out the 2017 Emmys opening monologue, musical number and more below. Read More »

Archer Dreamland teaser trailers

Though it started out as a spoof of James Bond-style spy stories, Archer‘s reinvented itself a couple of times over the past few years. There was that time it became a Miami Vice riff in season five, before “un-rebooting” itself in season six. It re-rebooted itself in season seven, this time as a Magnum P.I.-inspired private eye series. And it’s getting yet another makeover for season eight, refashioning itself as a 1940s noir mystery called Archer: Dreamland. Get your first look via two new teasers below.
