Archer will be moving to FXx where it will hopefully live on successfully like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has. With it being the 8th season, that’ll probably happen. More interestingly, FX head John Landgraf wants this move to signal a move towards animation for the FXx network.
Well, after all these years, it would seem that the divide between FX and FXx will come in at being live action (and series that get heavy awards consideration) on FX and animation and more pure comedy on FXx.
We’ll be curious to see where FX will take this move, especially since adult-skewing animated comedy is more crowded than it has ever been.
