In a Miami Vice-inspired scene, a new official poster for the fifth season of Archer features a white-suited Sterling Archer striding confidently — as if he strides any other way — across a beach, armed with a sawed-off shotgun and a designer bag stuffed with cash. He’s swapped out his trademark tie and black shoes with a polo shirt and loafers. Perhaps more interestingly, agent Lana Kane is shown in the background and she’s pregnant. Sterling’s mother Malory is looking toward her son, half-caring and the support crew at Isis — Pam, Ray, Cyril, Cheryl and Dr. Krieger — seem to be boat-wrecked.
We’ll have to wait until Monday, Jan. 13 to find out what all of this means (if it means anything), but for now you can just bask in the knowledge that there will be 13 new episodes of one of the best animated comedy series of all time. We can’t wait to see how the dysfunctional posse at Isis — voiced by Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Jessica Walter, Amber Nash, Lucky Yates and Adam Reed (also the show’s creator) — get along during this long-awaited season.
