FXX describes Archer as "an animated, half-hour comedy that, in its 11th season, follows Sterling Archer and his return to the spy world after a three-year coma. While many things changed during his absence, Archer is confident it will take just a little time for him to reset things back to the old ways. The problem: does the rest of the team want that?"

The show's voice cast includes H. Jon Benjamin as the newly awakened secret agent, "Sterling Archer;" Aisha Tyler as super spy, "Lana Kane;" Jessica Walter as Archer's mother and spymaster, "Malory Archer;" Judy Greer as the surprisingly well-adjusted assistant, "Cheryl/Carol Tunt;" Chris Parnell as the newly-minted alpha male, "Cyril Figgis;" Amber Nash as the lovable comrade in arms, "Pam Poovey;" Adam Reed as the consummate professional, "Ray Gillette;" and Lucky Yates as the unscrupulous scientist, "Algernop Krieger."
