Yes, ladies and gentlemen: Archer is (almost) back.
The highly anticipated sixth season of the hilarious spy-spoof will premiere on FX at 10 pm EST on January 8, 2015. Creator Adam Reed’s show is coming off its first Emmy nomination for its radical departure of a fifth season—one that saw Sterling Archer and his spy cronies form a makeshift drug cartel to try and move “a literal tonne of cocaine.” Now, following the birth of baby Abijean (named after Reed’s grandmother), Malory and Co. have decided to drop the name ISIS and are forced to work for their CIA overlords, including Slater (voiced by Christian Slater, of course).
Reed’s described Season 6 as an “unreboot,” and one that will see the gang revert back to the Mad Men-meets-Bond format that made it so damn indelible to begin with.
The Daily Beast is exclusively premiering six “Certified” videos depicting the mad scientist Krieger training your favorite Archer characters for their sixth season duties, as well as new key art signaling the show’s return.
