As psyched as you are for Archer: 1999 to head out on its space-faring 10th season, don't forget that the fine folks over at FXX are giving the hit animated series its own aftershow, starting with the series' return on May 29th. Hosted by cast members Amber Nash (Pam) and Lucky Yates (Krieger), Archer After Hours will stream on Facebook Live on Archer's Facebook page.
Set to air on May 29, June 26, and July 24, the show will be part after-show, talk show, sketch show, and party – with special guest interviews, behind-the-scenes commentary, cosplay spotlights, and more.
You know what? Let's let Nash and Yates tell you about what it's all about in this new teaser…
Returning for its 10th season, Archer: 1999 features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as hard-drinking Captain Sterling Archer; Aisha Tyler as Archer's Co-Captain and short-tempered ex-wife, Lana Kane; Jessica Walter as Archer's mother and ball of energy, Malory Archer; Judy Greer as the eagle-eye fighter pilot, Cheryl/Carol Tunt; Chris Parnell as the attention-seeking First Mate, Cyril Figgis; Nash as the crew's rock monster muscle, Pam Poovey; Adam Reed as the out-of-place-in-space courtesan, Ray Gillette; and Yates as the synthetic human with questionable morals, Algernop Krieger.
The series writers have been taking full advantage of the "It's all in Sterling's head" theme, using it to their advantage to offer diferent takes on the characters, new environments, and unique storyline situations. In the past, Archer and the crew have found themselves in the film noir/dime novel detective-themed Archer: Dreamland. From there, it was a South Pacific world filled with spies, smuggling, and danger in Archer: Danger Island.
Here's a look at the season's official trailer, shining a spotlight on the humorous side of sci-fi films like Alien – with our "special" team (in every sense of the word) of agents breaking beyond the bonds of Earth to spread humanity's message across the universe.
You know? Like a disease…
Archer: 1999 is an animated, half-hour comedy that follows Sterling Archer, Lana Kane, and their crew of acid-tongued misfits onboard the M/V Seamus salvage ship. An important question arises as they explore deep space and try to outsmart giant aliens, intergalactic pirates, and vicious bounty hunters: how do they survive each other?
Welcome to the space-tastic world of Archer: 1999.
Now here's a look at the season previews released over the past few weeks – ranging from why you shouldn't get a rock monster aroused and Sterling channeling his inner-Captain Kirk to Krieger's questionable knowledge of space safety:
