List of Archer episodes

The ninth season of the animated television series, Archer, known as Archer Danger Island, premiered on April 25, 2018, on FXX.[1]

Production[edit]

FXX announced that this season would see a change in the time period once again, with this series taking place in 1938. Along with the change in time period, the network announced that although the same voice cast will return as in previous seasons, they will again play different versions of their characters. This means that Archer, who was found shot in actress Veronica Deane's pool at the conclusion of season seven, will remain in a coma, and the events of the season are of his imagination.

These different versions will have similar personalities to their "normal" counterparts but will be in different roles/jobs and have different relationships. The season's premise will see Archer as an alcoholic co-pilot with Pam, who crash land onto the lush and mysterious Pacific island of Mitimotu.[1]

The season also pays homage to the short lived 1980s television series Tales of the Gold Monkey which featured a very similar premise as Danger Island. Adam Reed has previously claimed that Tales of the Gold Monkey was "one of my favorite shows ever".[2]
