BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
Archer creator Adam Reed flipped the script with the fifth season of FX’s animated comedy, turning the cast from a group of super-spies into a gang of drug dealers. However, he promises the upcoming sixth season will return everything to normal — well, “normal.”
“I think this next season we will sort of unreboot, or whatever — deboot and get back to the basics of some spy missions,”Reed told EW.com. However, he did say some threads will carry over.
“Lana’s going to have a baby, so I see some funny things with getting her co-workers to babysit,” Reed said. “I wrote this down the other day: ‘Somebody walks in on Pam [Poovey, ISIS human resources director] chewing up Vienna sausages and then spitting them into the baby’s mouth like a gorilla.’ They’re like, ‘What are you doing?’ And she’s like, ‘This is how I always do it!'”
Archer airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
