In an interview with EW, the creators revealed that three years have passed since Archer fell into a coma and that things are going to be very different once he wakes up in the new season.
"We’re definitely back to doing spy missions," co-creator and executive producer Matt Thompson revealed. "But the roles and people’s personalities have changed. What’s also different is Archer is physically and mentally not what he was. He’s been in a bed for three years. His muscles have atrophied to the point where he can’t even walk that well."
The creators also revealed that Archer would now be equipped with a “tacti-cane”, a cane loaded with cool gadgets that should in theory help Archer make up for the decline in his physical ability.
A trailer for the upcoming season was released during [email protected] 2020. The clip teases Archer's return and shows how everyone else has moved on without him. The company is back in the spy game and everyone seems to have gotten a lot better in Archer's absence. Never fear, Archer's back and he's going to take things back to the way they were, whether they like it or not.
