Season 6

Critics Consensus

A soft reboot helps keeps things fresh six seasons in, though its absurd delights are best enjoyed by those familiar with Archer's unique sensibilities.

Yet even if the stories are somewhat stagnant, the writing remains laser sharp.

Now that it's gotten its midlife crisis over and done with, Archer is moving out of its mistress's apartment and returning home to do right by its family again.

Feb 25, 2015 | Rating: 55/100 | Full Review…

Overall, this was a pretty great season finale

Mar 21, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Yes, there's plenty different about this "unreboot" even as it looks and sounds like Archer Classic. And while there's so much ground to cover, Archer still manages to stack jokes on top of rock solid vocal performances that bring it all to life.

Jan 9, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Even as the series begins to show its age, Archer's commitment to character ensures that these episodes never feel too familiar.

Jan 7, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The reset button got hit, they're back on they're spy s**t and I think a few more episodes in, this will be back to being one of the best comedies on TV again. But this feels like the preseason right now.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Archer is a fun show because the main character is fundamentally incapable of contemplating his own death. That's why it's both admirable and scary that season 6 of Archer has seemed so deadset on breaking [it].

Mar 21, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's been a very good season for Archer, which made the transition from ISIS to the CIA with lots of good laughs at the expense of the CIA.

Apr 2, 2015 | Full Review…

Archer Season 6 Episode 1 was hilarious and character-rich.

Jan 12, 2015 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It's so good to have you back, Archer.

Jan 9, 2015 | Rating: 8.9/10 | Full Review…

Funny and surprisingly thoughtful, the season six premiere of Archer finds the show going back to basics with a great amount of success.

Audience Reviews for Archer: Season 6

  • Apr 10, 2020
    Fantastic, loved it.
  • Oct 11, 2019
    Feels a little 'Been there, done that' in its gags, but it's more than made up for by seeing and realizing how far these ridiculous characters have come in their personalities and relationships with each other. While watching the first season I never would have guessed that, five seasons later, that the popular spy Archer and that annoying secretary Pam would ever become best friends. Also the animation has finally reached its peak quality, especially when compared to that of the first two seasons.
  • Sep 02, 2019
    You can never go wrong with Archer.
  • Jan 02, 2019
    Excellent comedy. The entire cast is a talented set of voices and the artwork is entertaining. The relationships are constantly surprising and entertaining. A must watch for the mature adult who doesn't want to be too mature. Pam has become my favorite character by far. Her behavior is beyond comical, and reaches the realm of side burstingly hilarious. The cast is absolutely superb.
  • Jan 17, 2018
    Another brilliant season of Archer that continues to bring new levels of irreverence and vulgarity to the competitive adult animation genre.
  • Mar 28, 2017
    Archer maintains its incredible quality of writing and surprises viewers with the extra resources put into animating the characters.
  • May 29, 2016
    Returning to the espionage back-drop after the "Archer Vice" season, FX's sharply raunchy animated series is still as fresh and funny as ever, even now six years in. Also, has one of the show's best two-part season finales.
  • Jan 03, 2016
    Do you guys do phrasing? At least "that's what she said"?
  • Aug 12, 2015
    i've seen every episode at least 3 times.
  • Jul 20, 2015
    Only Archer can make an entire episode set in an elevator interesting. This show demonstrates again and again why it is one the most inventive and unique on television. These writers know how to switch things up to keep people engaged (e.g. becoming drug dealers, working for the CIA, Archer being a dad. If they keep coming up with storylines like thes, this show will be great for a long time to come.
