Archer is the latest show to shift its premiere as a result of the global coronavirus crisis: Season 11 of the FXX animated comedy has been pushed from May to later this year, our sister site Variety reports.
“Due to production challenges and scheduling issues, Season 11 of FXX’s Emmy Award-winning animated comedy series Archer will no longer premiere on May 6,” FX Networks said in a statement.
In recent weeks, HBO has postponed the premieres of its limited series The Third Day, The Undoing and I Know This Much Is True, while Showtime announced that Billions and Black Monday will air split seasons. TNT, however, moved up the debut of its long-gestating, post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer.
