Once again, Archer is rebranding with its new season. This time, the secret agent is blasting off into the space age, with Archer: 1999. While the backdrop is new, the cast of degenerates at the International Secret Intelligence Service remains just as goofy as before, albeit, with a few sci-fi variations. Archer and Lana are still divorced but are somehow trying to work together as they pilot the M/V Seamus. Mallory is still running the show, voiced to the hilt by comedy queen Jessica Walter, but is now a sphere.
As for fan favorite Pam Poovey? She's a rock monster now. Aisha Tyler described her new character as, "if The Thing had a really bad case of eczema." The usual cast is back, but so are fan favorites. Archer's nemesis Barry returns, this time as a robot. Everyone's favorite bullet magnet Brett will be present as well, likely soaking up some lead as usual.
Here's everything you need to know to stream Archer.

What the critics are saying
- "These are still the same characters we've laughed with dressed in other people’s movie clothes, save for Pam Poovey (Amber Nash), who is literally built like a rock in this 10th season. This just goes to prove that the best TV delights can put on any old clothing; as long as they remain true to the core of what makes us adore them, we’ll keep our eyes on them." -Melanie MacFarland, Salon
- "My only gripe with Archer: 1999 is that there’s no bigger plot to the season; it’s just a collection of episodes that are loosely tied together through the space-travel setup. So while it was fun to watch the crew track down a xenomorph, battle in space gladiator combat, get addicted to psychotropic alien eggs, and fight their way out of a celestial mollusk, I wish they had some greater goal in mind." -Dave Trumbore, Collider
