Archer does an amazing job of keeping the show fresh by re-imagining the characters in different times and settings. Season 5 (Archer: Vice) mixed things up by putting the gang in a new location (Tunt Manor instead of ISIS headquarters), with a new job as drug dealers instead of secret agents. Likewise Season 7 moves them out west to Los Angeles where the team works for The Figgis Agency doing private investigations in Hollywood. Season 8 (Archer: Dreamland) mixed things up further by taking place in a 1947 noir-esque Los Angeles setting with alter-ego versions of all the characters.
Watch the Archer: Danger Island (Season 9) Trailer, and see that they’ve gone all out with making this season fresh as well. It takes place on South Pacific island of Mitimotu, in 1939, with World War II looming. Sterling Archer is now a hard-drinking pilot; Lana Kane is island royalty, Princess Lanaluakalani; Pam Poovey is Archer’s co-pilot; Cheryl is an abandoned heiress, Charlotte Vandertunt; Cyril Figgis is German spy, Siegbert Fuchs. Ray Gillette is a French Capitaine Reynaud, and Doctor Krieger is a scarlet macaw, Crackers.
The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin as the hard-drinking pilot, “Sterling Archer;” Jessica Walter as Archer’s acid-tongued mother and hotel owner, “Malory Archer;” Aisha Tyler as island royalty and local revolutionary, “Princess Lanaluakalani;” Judy Greer as the abandoned heiress, “Charlotte Vandertunt;” Chris Parnell as the obvious German spy posing as a businessman, “Siegbert Fuchs;” Amber Nash as Archer’s co-pilot and loyal sidekick, “Pam Poovey;” Adam Reed as impeccably uniformed French Capitaine, “Reynaud;” and Lucky Yates as the audacious scarlet macaw, “Crackers.”
