Archer Season 8 renewal is up in the air at FX, but executive producer Matt Thompson has confirmed plans for the next chapter in the series, per Zap2It:
We have a plan in place, it’s just FX has not announced if we’re renewed or not. Talks are on-going. One way or the other I know we’ll know by the time we get to Comic-Con by the end of July … that Comic-Con might be pretty interesting. [laughs]
On what Season 8 will look like if the animated series is renewed, Thompson offered:
We have three competing ideas. We have one that we like the best but unfortunately I can’t talk about it at this time. One way or the other it’s going to come out, what we’re thinking about, and I know that we’re headed to some sort of thing when we do Comic-Con in July.
Thompson also confirmed the possibility of an Archer spinoff, with talks already in motion:
I love Archer and Archer-bot hanging out together. Those two guys together are just great, and I think what [creator Adam Reed] realized as he was writing them is what perfect buddy is there for Archer but himself? We do have a couple different ideas that we’re avidly talking to FX about and that’s actually in the mix. Think “Simon & Simon,” but not.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Archer Season 8…
