Archer Season 6 Spoilers: ISIS Returns (Kinda), Archer Meets Lana’s Parents [VIDEO]
The show about the constantly drunk (but somehow really amazing) spy is returning for a new season next week when Archer comes back to FX for its sixth season.
Co-creator Matt Thompson sat down with Gold Derby and teased at some of the upcoming events for season six of the show.
Season five was based around the Archer: Vice idea which we had been told would be ret-conned before the season even ended. As it turned out, by the end of season five, the crew had found a way to get rid of the coke and get their old jobs back.
But they won't be ISIS anymore because, well, real life news.
We also found out in the season finale that Lana's baby is Archer's baby. In the upcoming season, we'll see Archer meet Lana's parents. We'll also get to meet Pam's sister.
We'll also see Christian Slater return as Slater. Fans may remember him as the double agent Archer met during a cokeless run during the last season.
As for some of the crazier bits of last season, namely Pam's coke addiction and Cheryl/Charlene's music career, expect them to be swept under the rug. What happened last season, for the most part, stays in last season. Of course, at some point in time, they're going to have to deal with the Krieger clone issue.
My guess is that it won't really be an issue though. After all, the Krieger we know and love is more than likely just a clone himself. I imagine that Archer and the gang don't care either way.
Archer returns to FX on January 8, 2015 at 10 p.m. You can watch the interview below.
