Archer: 5 Teases from the Season 5 Premiere Archer returns to FX on Monday [January 13], and the show is undergoing a major reboot in its fifth season, which has been dubbed "Archer Vice." The ISIS team members are forced to explore new career options - which eventually lands them on the wrong side of the law. "I think [creator] Adam Reed probably got very drunk one night while he was writing on his computer," star H. Jon Benjamin told reporters on a conference call this week of the revamp. "When he told me in detail what was going to happen, I was thrilled. I loved the idea. But in fairness, I couldn't reject it. I couldn't say, 'Don't do that.' I don't have that kind of power." Some mild spoilers in the full article. I couldn't find a thread for the new season so here we are. And I put it in SFF because the show regularly has such SFF tropes as cyborgs, clones, space stations, artificial lifeforms, undersea laboratories, etc.
