The next season of Archer finally has a premiere date

After a month of teasing us with a “Spring” release date for the much anticipated eighth season of FX’s animated comedy series Archer, we finally know when the first episode will hit our screens.

Wednesday, April 5th will see Archer and the gang return, in an alternate 1947 dreamland reality, while our titular hero is in a coma. Yes – this season will be the animated equivalent of the now classic British series Life on Mars.

No word on when Australians will get to legally watch the series, but those in the US will be able to watch the series from 5th April (6th April our time) on the network FXX – FX’s sister network, which it’s moving to for the first time this season.
