Archer Goes On A Pulpy Jungle Adventure In The First Trailer For Season Nine

Indiana Jones meets Tarzan meets... well, the belligerent, drunk bunch of goofballs we all know and love as the cast of Archer. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, both "very little" and "maybe everything", given that the show's ninth season - subtitled Danger Island - is mostly taking place in Archer's head, or specifically the island of Mitimotu, as Sterling still isn't out of the coma he's been in since the finale of season six. It's just now that instead of old-timey noir, he's dreaming about 1930s pulp adventure novels.

While it's a little disheartening that there still isn't much movement in the "real" world of Archer to be found in this trailer, it's an absolute delight to see the show continue to tinker with stretching its limits to a very weird and wonderful breaking point. One that includes an eyepatch-wearing Archer, Nazis to be punched, and... Krieger as a talking parrot? Yes, please.

Archer: Danger Island heads to FXX April 25.



    I believe he's been in a coma since the end of season 7, or did I miss something?

      No, you're right. Archer has been in a coma since the end of Season 7... Now it just feels like the show is struggling to work out an ending or just killing time till the contacts run out.

        Or taking advantage of it to try new things, which is never bad.
