'Archer: 1999': Release date, cast, plot, trailer and everything you know about season 10 of Adam Reed's adult animated sitcom
'Archer: 1999' will premiere on May 29 and this will be the first time that creator, Adam Reed, has not written every episode for the season
'Archer' fans rejoice! The Adam Reed-created American adult animated sitcom will be back for the 10th season and is titled 'Archie:1999'. Earlier, FXX had announced that the new season will see a change in time period once again (This season, the time period will be 1999) and although the same voice cast will return as in previous seasons, they will again play different versions of their characters. The show's most recent season, 'Archer: Danger Island' transported Archer and Co. to the 1930s on a remote island in the Pacific. Here's what we know about the series so far:
'Archer: 1999' will premiere in FXX on May 29 and will be an eight-episode season.
The events will take place aboard a spaceship. The season will see Archer as the hard-drinking captain of the spacefaring M/V Seamus salvage ship. 'Archer: Danger Island' had already established that Archer was going to space. That theory was proved true when creator Adam Reed pointed out that season 10 takes place on a spaceship. In an interview with EW, he said, "Next season is similar in the fact that they are all kind of cloistered together, but they’re going to be cloistered together on a spaceship."
FXX's official logline reads: "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 one another? Welcome to the space-tastic world of Archer: 1999."
'Archer' has a principal cast of eight actors, H. Jon Benjamin, Jessica Walter, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Chris Parnell, Lucky Yates, and Adam Reed. Benjamin voices the show's titular character, Walter voices Malory Archer, Tyler plays Lana Kane, Greer portrays Cheryl Tunt, Nash plays Pam Poovey, Parnell voices Cyril Figgis, Yates portrays Dr. Algernop Krieger, and Reed plays Ray Gillette.
The trailer shows H. Jon Benjamin's Sterling Archer, Aisha Tyler's Lana and the other characters cast as the crew of a spaceship, with Amber Nash's Pam and Chris Parnell's Cyril playing inhuman aliens. The trailer seems to have been inspired by 'Space:1999', the sci-fi series. It also has specific references from 'Aliens', 'Star Trek' and 'Thor: Ragnarok'.
This is the first season where creator, Adam Reed, has not written every episode for the season. Shane Kosakowski and Mark Ganek have been roped in to pen the episodes. Watch this space for more updates on 'Archer: 1999'
