Cult animated sitcom Archer will end with its 10th season, creator Adam Reed has revealed.
The seventh season of the show focusing on suave master spy Sterling Archer concluded in June. FX has since ordered another three seasons, but Reed has said these will be its last.
“The plan is to end Archer after season 10,” he explained on the Murmur 7 podcast>. “I don’t know that anybody has talked about that, but that is definitely my plan – to do 8, 9, and 10 and they’re gonna be each shorter seasons of just eight episodes, and then wind it up.”
Continuing, Reed added: “I was gonna end it after 8, but then I had sort of a brain explosion of a way that I could do three more seasons and really keep my interest up. So the three seasons that are coming up are gonna be pretty different from what has come before, and they’re gonna be different from each other.”
Archer has been airing on FX in the US since it debuted in 2010. The show’s voice cast includes H. Jon Benjamin, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Chris Parnell, Jessica Walter, Aisha Tyler and recurring guest stars Christian Slater and Jeffrey Tambor.
