Archer fans should be happy. A lot of times, Archer has been able to get away from things that should have killed him. Adam Reed, the creator of the show Archer, told fans in 2016 that the show wouldn’t last more than 10 seasons.
The eleventh season that aired in fall 2020 was going to be the last one for Sterling Archer (via NBC). In October, Variety said that FXX had renewed the animated series, Archer, for a 12th season because of a 32% increase in viewers in the 11th season.
When Can We Return to the Danger Zone?
In Archer’s 12th season, we don’t know if everyone from Bob’s Burgers will be in the show at the same time as Sterling. We also don’t know how long the show will be. Archer creator Adam Reed and the rest of the team have given us a general idea of when we can expect new episodes.
The twelfth season of the animated television series Archer debuted on FXX on August 25, on Hulu. In 2021, the article doesn’t say when we can expect to see new episodes. Our best guess is that season 12 will start sometime in the fall of that year.
A rival spy agency provides the perfect foil for Archer’s misfit spies as the series makes a welcome return to its roots in the two-episode Season 12 premiere.

Usually, there has been a year between seasons of Archer. The next season usually starts in the same month like the last one. During Season 11, which started last September, we hope to see Sterling and the rest of the group in new stories between August and October 2021.
As for COVID-19, there’s no way to be sure. In this case, there was a one-year gap between season 10 and season 11. Season 10 came out at the end of May 2019. Season 11 was put back until September 2020 because of the coronavirus.
Archer’s 12th Season Is Coming Up. Who Will Be There?
For now, we don’t have any reason to think anyone from the cast of “Archer” will be absent.
During the interview, Looper talked to a number of actors who play the voice actors on the show, like H. Jon Benjamin (Sterling Archer), Amber Nash (Pam Poovey), Lucky Yates (Dr. Krieger), and Chris Parnell (Cyril Figgis).
In the “Danger Zone,” none of them seem to be in any hurry to talk. If Judy Greer and Aisha Tyler came back, we would expect them to. They probably already know about Jessica Walter’s death this year at the age of 80. Fans of Archer and comedy, in general, are likely aware of this.
There are no easy shoes to fill for Walter because he has been Mallory Archer’s voice since the very beginning of season 1. As a good thing, Deadline says that she finished all of her voice work on season 12 of Archer before she died, so fans can have one last bittersweet hurrah with a legend when new episodes of the show finally come on TV.
Then there are the guest stars that Archer is known for. If Stephen Toblowsky comes back as Lana’s oversharing billionaire husband, Robert, in season 11, that would be great! There is a good chance that Dave Willis will be back as the cyborg. Sterling now likes Barry.
As long as season 12 goes as well as season 11 and 12, we’re likely to get some great surprise guests. As a group, the cast of Archer would most likely choose Christian Slater, Kenny Loggins, and Peter Serafinowicz as the three people they’d like to see again.
It’s the 12th Season of Archer. What Can We Expect?
So, no, we can’t say for sure what Archer’s plot will be like in season 12. The answer isn’t clear, but we can make some good guesses about what is going on. That doesn’t mean that Archer won’t do one of its famous crazy things like put the whole cast in outer space or make them all drug dealers.
It’s a good bet that they won’t do that this season. There is a good chance that part of what drew so many people to Archer’s 11th season was that it was very simple. When Archer wakes up from his coma in season 11, he goes back to being a spy.
To make a new change in setting, time, or anything else would be weird since this one did a lot for the show’s popularity. Even though we might be wrong about our first prediction, we’re willing to bet that we’ll be right about our second one. That is, we think that Sterling will finally face at least some of the personal demons that haunt him in season 12.
In season 11, Archer wakes up to a world that is just as strange as the worlds he sees in his coma. Cyril looks like he could bench press Archer and two other people like him. Lana is married and his daughter doesn’t care about him. Stop looking for things like alcohol and food to keep him from thinking about what he’s going to do in this new world. Find a way to fit into this new world.
