Sterling Archer is heading into retirement.
The long-running animated comedy Archer will end with its upcoming 14th season, FXX announced Monday.
The farewell run will kick off Wednesday, Aug. 30, at 10/9c with a two-episode premiere; new episodes will also be available to stream on Hulu the next day. Interestingly, FXX had not announced a formal Season 14 renewal for Archer until now, but cast member Chris Parnell previously told Screen Rant in January that a 14th season was in production. (Get more of FX’s summer premiere dates here.)
Archer debuted on FX in 2009, then relocated to sister network FXX in 2017. During its run, the series has notched nine Primetime Emmy nominations and three wins (including for Outstanding Animated Program in 2016). The voice cast includes H. Jon Benjamin as the titular spy, Sterling Archer; Aisha Tyler as Lana Kane; Judy Greer as Cheryl Tunt; Amber Nash as Pam Poovey; Parnell as Cyril Figgis; Adam Reed as Ray Gillette and Lucky Yates as Dr. Krieger.
Jessica Walter, who had voiced Sterling’s mother, Malory Archer, since the show’s debut, sadly passed away in March 2021. Archer subsequently said goodbye to the actress in its Season 12 finale, in which Malory left the spy agency and passed the torch to her son. The character was last seen with her husband, Ron Cadillac, lounging on a tropical beach and sipping cocktails.

I figured this was coming but I will miss it.
All time great show. It is an expensive cast, and the syndication outlook was spotty.
This was a great show that has simply run its course. I love it and it had a great run.
One of the few long-running shows that I never lost interest in. I’ll miss it, but I’m sure it will go out well.
I hope they knew it was the final season going in so it gets a well deserved send off.
I also hope the writers knew it was going to be the final season and that they were able to give the series a great ending. Looking forward to seeing the new episodes.
I thought this show would go on forever, surprised they didnt just switch to the ONE season every TWO years model of airing. Oh well, will miss the gang!
oh man, this sucks, I really love the show and there is no other like it to replace it
Aww I’ll miss the show but it had a good long run. It was just a matter of time after Jessica Walter’s death. Anyway, I’d rather see Archer go out while it’s still somewhat relevant than get canceled further down the line from waning interest and a shrinking audience.
15 years of memories. The end was coming but makes me no less sad about it.
To this day, I find myself quoting Archer on more than a daily occurrence.
I’ll definitely miss it
I will miss this show…It was never boring…
