After a delayed start in 2016, this Thursday will see the Archer gang returning in yet another new role, the days of organized spywork largely behind them. And while we wouldn’t expect “ISIS” to return anytime soon, creator Adam Reed says the team will stick to their new line of private eye work beyond Season 7, while talk of a movie and series’ ending begins to swirl.
FX’s Archer made up for a late start to the year with an impressive shot-for-shot remake of the Magnum P.I. opening credits, but it seems the Tom Selleck spoof was more than homage. Our first Season 7 details confirm the former spy team will move to California to start a new agency, with guest turns from J.K. Simmons to Patton Oswalt.
By now we've seen 'The Simpsons' tackling a number of pop-culture funhouse mirrors of themselves, from the recent 'Family Guy' crossover to last season's LEGO installment, and this year's "Treehouse of Horror" is no different. Watch Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie meet not only their Tracey Ullman counterparts, but countless more parodying anime, 'Adventure Time,' 'Archer' and more from last night's Halloween special!

Other than Burt Reynolds himself, it's possible the only man who'd make a better ISIS agent than Sterling Archer is Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise. That said, Archer would also make a damn good animated Kirk, as evidenced by these Starcher Trek videos, featuring the voices of Sterling, Lana, and the rest of the crew from Archer dubbed over clips from Star Trek: The Animated Series. I'd describe them further, but they're pretty much exactly what you'd expect, so I suggest just checking out the first installment below.
Fans of Kevin Mellon likely know him as the artist of Heart with Blair Butler, Lovestruck with Dennis Hopeless, American Muscle with Steven Niles, and a storyboarder/designer on FX's Archer -- among other collaborative efforts. Beginning today, though, Mellon will fly indie as the writer, artist and colorist of his new creator-owned series, Suicide Sisters.
