Archer: 1999 will be getting a companion aftershow at FXx called Archer After Hours to be hosted by cast members Amber Nash and Lucky Yates. For Archer’s longevity and rabid fan base, this makes a certain sense, but we’ll be curious to see how this plays out (and if this means that Archer will have more cliffhangers to drive the after show conversation).
What’s curious here is that this is, to our knowledge, the second network aftershow show for a comedy series. For a brief window of time, Rick and Morty had a live aftershow when Starburns Castle existed (RIP). It was pretty grand as they interviewed the writers in front of a live audience that got to watch the episode right before the aftershow taping.
If Archer After Hours does well enough, we’ll be curious to see if other series will make the jump (maybe The Simpsons, Barry, or maybe another Rick and Morty aftershow)
