Adam Reed has created the adult comedy series. Upon the release of its first season, Archer has acquired a massive fanbase with its quirky humor and over-the-top action.

Archer Season 13: What’s Next For Sterling Archer?
At the end of the twelfth season, Archer returned to its roots of spy comedy after delving into many sub-genres from multiple seasons, when Archer woke up from the coma. Fans also saw the spy agency ISIS struggling to survive after the big players were taking over the spy business. They were unable to keep up with the changing dynamics of the espionage industry.
So, Malory persuaded Lana’s husband Robert to invest in ISIS. However, when things ruined between Robert and Lana, he sold the agency to a shell company owned by Fabian’s IIA. As a result, Archer and the entire gang are now technically employed by the IIA.
Unfortunately, after the tragic demise of Malory Archer’s voice actor Jessica Walter fans saw Archer’s mother Malory taking retirement from spy work. The season ended with Archer finding a letter written by his mother. In the letter, she told ISIS members about her decision to quit. She also mentioned that she is now passing the leadership torch to Archer.
Now, for Archer Season 13, fans sure know that the gang (except for Ray Gillette) is unhappy about being occupied by the IIA. Thus, Archer and the team need to find a way to reestablish the ISIS they all love and worked in. Also, since Lana’s marriage with Robert is now in ruins, we might see Archer and Lana getting together again. After all, they are platonic.
