Ever since 1966, has there been a better way to explore what ails the human body than the ridiculously unwieldy process of shrinking yourself down into a miniature spaceship and seeing it first-hand? The Fantastic Voyage’s plot has become one of the most beloved tropes of popular culture, and here are 11 of our…
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 may be over, but io9's coverage lives on in our many, many posts, and we’ve collected them all here for you: movie and TV news and trailers, only-at-Comic-Con footage descriptions and experiences, amazing toys from the show floor, and so much more.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Sunday’s actually the best day to attend Comic-Con. “But Charles,” you’re surely saying to yourself. “All of the explosive new stuff comes out on Saturday!”
On Friday morning, Welsh animator Simon Chong logged onto Twitter and share a side project of his that he’d been laboring over for months: a carefully constructed Bob’s Burgers/Archer crossover that he illustrated and animated himself using various audio clips plucked from Archer.
The “Danger Zone” is about to get a whole lot more tropical. FX revealed at San Diego Comic-Con that season nine of Archer will be subtitled Danger Island, taking place on a remote beach in the South Pacific in 1939, where Sterling will be an eyepatch-wearing seaplane pilot. This sounds fantastic.
During today’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle panel, Fox premiered a new digital short, a delightfully fun crossover where Kingsman’s Eggsy (Taron Egerton) runs into world’s-greatest-spy-but-also-kind-of-an-idiot Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin), where the two secret agents do what they’re best at: being dapper and…
Joe Manganiello hints when The Batman is set to start filming. Get a new tease of Gerard Butler’s new environmental disaster movie. Matt Nix’s X-Men TV show finds the final member of its main cast. Plus, a Batman legend comes to Powerless, and another new clip from Beauty and the Beast. Praise Hera, the spoilers are…
After last week’s first trailer for Archer’s eighth season, subtitled Dreamland, FXX has released a boatload of new, very short promos, further teasing the show’s 1940s noir setting. So what if the whole thing is (probably) taking place in Sterling Archer’s comatose brain? This looks like a lot of fun.
The show’s done spy-fi. It’s done ‘80s P.I. shows. And now, the latest target of Sterling Archer and friends is the seedy world of noir. It looks incredible.
Archer is heading to a new network, FX offshoot FXX, and a new era. Though the show has traditionally had a lot of fun never specifying exactly when it’s taking place, season eight, subtitled Dreamland, is most definitely set in the past. We get our first glimpse of the 1940s milieu in these two quick promo clips.
Sterling Archer is not known for his commitment to self-care. The fictional spy is regularly beaten and shot, and subsists almost exclusively on a diet of booze. That is, with one glaring exception: Eggs Woodhouse.
Calling Archer an “animated secret-agent comedy” is accurate, but it leaves out so much. The snarky characters, the esoteric references, and the classic art style mean it’s a show as unique as it is hilarious. Now you can get a fully illustrated behind-the-scenes look at the making of the show with The Art of Archer.
Grab yourself a bear claw and a blue cocktail, preferably served in a goldfish bowl. Sure, we had a feeling this was coming—PHRASING—but FX’s animated spy comedy Archer will end after its 10th season. We’ll still be getting three more seasons, but they will only run eight episodes each.
Most of Comic-Con is spent either waiting in line or huddled in crowded rooms, so the chance to see a live reading of an Archer episode aboard a yacht docked just behind the convention center was a welcome diversion. The entire cast of FX’s animated secret agent/drug kingpin/private-detective series was there, with…
FX has renewed animated spy/drug dealer/private investigator/outlaw country comedy Archer for three more seasons, which will take the show through its 10th season. But while previous seasons ranged between 10 and 13 episodes, these upcoming editions will contain just eight eps each.
There’s long been talk that after the adventures of animation’s goofiest spy, Sterling Archer, came to an end on TV, the team behind the show would want to try an Archer movie. Recently the show’s producers teased an idea for a live-action film, and if they go that way they already have a perfect star in mind: Mad Men…

We’re now three episodes into Archer’s seventh season, which has seen the gang relocate to Los Angeles and set up shop as private investigators. Though Archer probably could have kept going with the secret-agent shenanigans, this new status quo has made an already great show even better. Here’s why.
