Big changes ahead for “Archer”
“We’re sort of keeping it under wraps. We’re a little behind in production. We normally have the premiere episode ready for Comic-Con. But we’re doing something a little different next year and we’re creating a lot of new elements. There’s a lot of drawing going on . . . we’ve recorded two episodes so far and we’ve already had Patton Oswalt in one episode and J.K. Simmons in another episode. So we’re getting very lucky with our guest stars,” Reed said.
Reed was joined by producer Casey Willis and stars H. Jon Bejamin, Jessica Walter, Aisha Tyler, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash and Lucky Yates.
Greer, who voices Cheryl Tunt, said “there are some major changes coming, everyone sort of takes on a new role and Cheryl’s one of those people.” She says she was speechless when Reed told her the new concept and praised him for being fearless and constantly reinventing the show.
Yates, the ever-inventing Dr. Krieger, said his character is “towing the Krieger line, he’s on his own path, whatever path that is for whatever Krieger we got.”
Despite the ambiguous future, Tyler can’t see Lana Kane saying goodbye to the world of espionage. Even after recently becoming a mother, Tyler said Kane is “incredibly ambitious and having a child didn’t change that . . . it’s the same dynamic for a lot of ambitious women out there . . . yeah I had a kid, but I didn’t die and I want to keep moving forward in my life.”
Season 7 of “Archer” will premiere early next year, which gives you plenty of time to catch up on your binge watching.
