Creatively, the show is great, and we think the final season was as strong as ever. Fans love the show, so we’ll keep going as long as they want. »

Meanwhile, Archer heads into its first season without the voice talents of the late Jessica Walter as Archer’s mother and spymaster Malory Archer. Its 13th season will air later this year.

“It’s not meant to be the last season. I think we feel really good with the scripts, they’re now livening them up for the next season. We’re waiting to see what the creators think about the progression time. We are very excited about this show and its continued longevity. When you have an animated half hour like this, it can go on, as you can see with The Simpsons, for a very long time. Archer always does good for us and people love it and the fans love it, so as long as they can keep doing it and maintain the quality, we’ll want to support it,” Schrier said.
