Animated sitcom “Archer,” which debuted on September 17, 2009, has been renewed by FX for seasons six and seven, taking it through at least 2015-16. Twenty-six additional episodes (13 in each season) have been ordered, which will bring the then seven-season tally to 114 half-hour episodes. Seven episodes remain in the show’s fifth season, with the season-finale airing on Monday, April 21 at 10 p.m.
“Archer is one of the best comedies on television and has played a significant role in the growth of the FX comedy brand,” said FX Networks and FX Productions president of original programming Eric Schrier. “We’re grateful to Adam Reed, Matt Thompson and their team at Floyd County, and also our incredible voice cast, and are looking forward to supporting their work for at least two more seasons.”
Season to-date, “Archer” is averaging 1.93 million viewers (and 3.86 million including repeats), according to Nielsen, which is a rise of two percent from one year earlier.
