News of Archer Season 11 was shared with fans at Comic-Con during a sneak peek screening and Q&A with its cast and producers in support of the series’ current 10th season, Archer: 1999.
“We are incredibly excited for our 11th season and look forward to Archer waking up from his coma and returning to a spy world that has continued without him for the past three years,” said executive producer Casey Willis.
Archer: 1999 returns Wednesday, July 24, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FXX with the season’s penultimate episode, “Cubert.” In it, Archer is convinced a mysterious object is causing the crew to act strangely.

Archer 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?
