The series has also received numerous awards, including three Primetime Emmy Awards and four Critics Choice Awards. The series has also received 15 Annie Award nominations, for outstanding achievement in animation, writing, direction and voice acting.
The team is led by Sterling Archer, voiced by H. “Archer” is an animated, half-hour comedy that follows eight dysfunctional spies of the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS), a fictional New York-based intelligence agency. Jon Benjamin, who returns to the scene after a three-year coma. Previous seasons have reimagined the core cast as stock characters from a noir film, following the team’s mission in a remote South Pacific island in 1939 and in a retro-futuristic outer space.
“Archer” was conceived by creator Adam Reed following the cancellation of his Adult Swim series “Frisky Dingo." The dark comedy draws inspiration from the James Bond franchise, referencing heavy humor and meta-comedy. There have been 110 episodes broadcast in the show’s history.
Watch the trailer below.
The upcoming season is produced by FX Productions. “Archer” was created by Reed, executive produced by Reed, Matt Thompson and Casey Willis at Floyd County Productions.

PT/ET. The 11th season will premiere two back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 10 p.m. “Archer,” the Emmy-winning comedy series, is returning to FXX.

Fan outcry finally convinced the home entertainment unit to release Season 18 in 2017. But the show's producers, and some cast members, had also already recorded commentaries for Seasons 19 and 20.
The DVD announcement was made during "The Simpsons" panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
"The Simpsons," of course, is heading into Season 31 this fall, so at this slow pace, it might be a long time (if ever) for the show's entire run to be available on DVD. A barebones Season 20 DVD was released in 2010, out of order, to capitalize on the show's 20th anniversary. With Season 19 now getting a release, that means collectors will at least have the first 20 seasons available on disc.
But when the new Disney Plus streaming service launches this fall, the complete "Simpsons" run will move there.
Executive producer Al Jean revealed on Saturday that 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will finally release the 19th season of "The Simpsons" on DVD this December 3, two years after it last put Season 18 on sale.
There are also custom menus on every disc, along with commentary on every episode, he added. The Season 19 DVD includes 20 episodes and features "collectible Homer Simpson packaging," Jean said.
And then production halted on any future seasons. That will finally give fans a complete set of the first 20 seasons. For a long time it looked like DVD collectors would be out of luck, as "The Simpsons" had been on a regular DVD release schedule up until Season 17 in December 2014.
"The Simpsons" episodes have already been available for digital purchase, and cable subscribers who have FX and FXX (which currently holds the off-network cable and streaming rights to the show) have access to Simpsons World, where every episode of the show ever produced is available.
Episodes that season included "Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind," which won the Primetime Emmy for outstanding animated program, and "The Homer of Seville," nominated for a WGA award. Season 19 of "The Simpsons" originally aired on Fox between 2007 and 2008. Guest stars that season included Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, Glenn Close, Stephen Colbert, Matt Dillon, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jack Black and "Weird Al" Yankovic.
"I can’t think of a better thing to put on your shelf between seasons 1-18 and 20," Jean quipped to Variety.” />
"The Simpsons" DVD collectors who also happen to be obsessive-compulsive can rest a little easier: You'll finally be able to fill in that missing Season 19.

Main-title theme music nominees, in addition to the aforementioned "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" trio and the composers of "Good Omens" and "Our Planet," are past winner Thomas Newman ("Six Feet Under") for Hulu's "Castle Rock" and first-time nominee Nicholas Britell for HBO's "Succession."
Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement received their seventh and eighth nominations, respectively, for a song in HBO's "Flight of the Conchords: Live in London," while newcomers Mark Sonnenblick, Ashley Paseltiner and Molly Reichard received nominations for a song in HBO's documentary "Song of Parkland." "Saturday Night Live" music director Brueggemann's co-songwriting nominees are Bryan Tucker and Leslie Jones, both previous nominees.
Their fellow nominees in the original-song category include "Late Night" host Seth Meyers (on his 21st nomination, having won once for a "Saturday Night Live" song), first-timer Eli Bolin and two-time Emmy winner John Mulaney, for a song in the "Original Cast Album: Co-op" episode of IFC's "Documentary Now!"
Similarly, about half the nominees in the music direction category are Emmy veterans. Greg Phillinganes, who won in 2015, is back at the Emmys for BET's "Q85: A Musical Celebration for Quincy Jones." Rickey Minor earned his eighth and ninth nominations for overseeing the music for CBS's "Aretha! A Grammy Celebration for the Queen of Soul" and ABC's "The Oscars"; he won in this category in 2017.
Maisel; and another nominee from last year, Thomas Golubic for AMC's "Better Call Saul." In only its second year of existence, the music supervision category — honoring the creative use of previously existing songs — includes last year's winners, Robin Urdang, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino for Amazon Prime's "The Marvelous Mrs.
Only one of those is in a music category; she's nominated for music direction of a variety special alongside co-music director Derek Dixie (a first-time nominee). Her other nods are as a producer, co-director and writer of the special. Beyoncé's "Homecoming" special on Netflix was nominated in six categories, and four of those include a nod for the pop superstar herself.
Bareilles, nominated last year for her performance as Mary Magdalene in "Jesus Christ Superstar," was cited this year as co-songwriter of a new song on CBS's Tony Awards, "This One's for You." Her co-host on that show, Josh Groban, shares the nomination and is up for his first Emmy.
Music awards will be handed out at the Creative Arts Emmy awards, televised on Sept. 14 and 15 on FXX, with the main Emmy show to air on Fox on Sept. 22.
Eli Brueggemann, who won last year for a "Saturday Night Live" song, received his fifth and sixth nominations for music direction and song for NBC's "Saturday Night Live." His co-directors, receiving their first nominations, are Lenny Pickett and Leon Pendarvis. They are joined in this category by Alex Lacamoire, receiving his first nomination for FX's "Fosse / Verdon."
His co-composer on the rock-climbing film, Brandon Roberts, also earned his first Emmy nomination. Only Marco Beltrami, nominated for the NatGeo doc "Free Solo," has been in the Emmy competition before.
Beyoncé and Sara Bareilles could add Emmy trophies to their awards shelves this year, having been nominated in key music categories Tuesday by the Television Academy.
Half of the nominees in the category of music composition for a limited series, movie or special have been to the Emmy rodeo before. Previous winner Edward Shearmur ("Masters of Horror") is up for Showtime's "Escape at Dannemora" while another past winner, David Arnold ("Sherlock") earned two nominations, for the score and main title theme for Amazon Prime's "Good Omens."
Earning their first nominations in that category were Hildur Guonadottir for HBO's "Chernobyl," Kris Bowers for Netflix's "When They See Us," and Keefus Ciancia for HBO's "True Detective." Music producer T Bone Burnett earned his third Emmy nomination as co-writer with Ciancia on "True Detective."
They are joined by first-time nominees Steven Gizicki for "Fosse / Verdon," Jasper Leak for Netflix's documentary "Quincy," and Brienne Rose for Netflix's "Russian Doll."
They were the most high-profile performers cited by Emmy voters in the seven music categories. As always, the results were a wide-ranging collection of newcomers and previous Emmy winners.
Emmy's newest category, for music composition in a documentary, saw six entries, nearly all of them earning their first Emmy nominations: Hannah Peel for HBO's "Game of Thrones: The Last Watch"; Benjamin Wallfisch, for NatGeo's "Hostile Planet"; Miriam Cutler, nominated for both CNN's "Love, Gilda" and "RBG"; and Steven Price, who earned two nods for Netflix's "Our Planet" (both score and main title theme).
Three of the five nominees in the category of music composition for a series are first-timers: David Wingo for HBO's "Barry," Adam Taylor for Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" and Siddhartha Khosla for NBC's "This Is Us." But the competition in this category is fierce, as they are up against five-time Emmy winner Jeff Beal for the final episode of Netflix's "House of Cards," and last year's winner, "Game of Thrones" composer Ramin Djawadi, for "The Long Night" episode of the final season of HBO's behemoth.
Fox's "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" collaborators were cited in both the songwriting and main-title theme categories, hoping for a win from the show's final season. They've all contended for the celebrated musical-comedy show before — Rachel Bloom earned her fifth and sixth nominations, Jack Dolgen his third and fourth, while their co-writer Adam Schlesinger earned his seventh and eighth — he's the only past winner of the trio, having won twice for original songs at the Tony Awards.

The series is set in a video game development studio, with McElhenney also attached to star in addition to writing and executive producing alongside Day. The series marks the duo's first collaboration as writers since "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." McElhenney co-created "It's Always Sunny" with both he and Day starring and serving as executive producers on that show.
McElhenney and former "It's Always Sunny" writer and executive producer Rob Rosell currently have an untitled comedy pilot in contention for midseason at Fox, which will feature "It's Always Sunny" star–and McElhenney's wife–Kaitlin Olson in a lead role. Day is also an executive producer on that project, in addition to co-creating the Fox multi-cam comedy "The Cool Kids," which will launch on the broadcaster this September with McElhenney also executive producing.
FX has already renewed the show for Seaosn 14, which will tie it with "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" as the longest running live-action sitcom in American TV history. It originally aired on FX but moved to FXX ahead of its ninth season. "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" will begin airing its thirteenth season in September.
McElhenney and Day are repped by WME, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern, LLP.” />
Michael Rotenberg and Nicholas Frenkel will executive produce on behalf of 3 Arts, with Gérard Guillemot, Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik of Ubisoft also executive producing. The series will be produced by the recently announced Lionsgate-3 Arts Entertainment venture along with video game publisher Ubisoft. Day and McElhenney will executive produce via their RCG banner.
Apple has given a straight-to-series order to a half-hour scripted comedy from Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, Variety has learned.

"We went through all sorts of ideas before we knew that Glenn was coming back," McElhenney said. "He's in pretty much every episode."
Dennis Reynolds is hanging around after all.
FXX had previously announced that Howerton wouldn't be as big a part of Season 13 of the series.
During an appearance at the TCA summer press tour on Friday, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" cast members Charlie Day, Danny DeVito, Rob McElhenney, and Kaitlin Olson revealed that Glenn Howerton will in fact appear in most of the episodes of the show's upcoming thirteenth season.
5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FXX.” /> The new season of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” will premiere on Sept.
Day also revealed that the team behind the show got creative with ways to shoot around Howerton's absence, such as doing an all-female reboot of a past episode of the series. "He's in the majority of them," Day chimed in.
In that show, he plays a philosophy scholar who loses out on his dream job and goes to work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher. Howerton’s reduced role was not unexpected, given he is currently the lead on the NBC comedy “AP Bio,” which was renewed for a second season back in May.
"Dennis takes on the new role of father in North Dakota…Even without Dennis Reynolds, the Gang has its hands full as Charlie hopes to have a child with The Waitress, Mac sets out to understand his newfound sexuality, Dee takes feminism to new heights, and Frank goes to great lengths for the Gang to experience the greatest moment in Philadelphia sports history – an Eagles Super Bowl victory.”
The official synopsis for the season read, in part:
