He’s only been MIA for three years, but Sterling Archer—who was never one for political correctness to begin with—missed some huge cultural shifts while he was languishing in his coma, dreaming up fantastical Archer seasons. At long last, here’s a season 11 teaser with all the characters back in the “real” world.
And as you can see—the gang is back in their New York offices, but their reaction to Archer’s return is startlingly frosty.
Maybe they didn’t really miss him (and his egotistical, chaos-causing energy) all that much? As for the erstwhile superspy, he’s got both a cane and some major catching up to do, in a world where “everybody splooshes!” is apparently no longer true.
Damn, it’s gonna be the weirdest season yet unless something changes, and that’s saying a lot for a show that has traveled to space, on a blimp, inside a human body, and so many other strange places. Archer returns to FXX on September 16, with episodes popping up the following day on FX on Hulu.
