Archer Season 5 premiered this week as practically a whole new show, also known as Archer Vice. The cast, including J. Jon Benjamin, Judy Greer, Amber Nash and Chris Parnell, as well as executive producers Adam Reed and Matt Thompson were on hand at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California this week.
Here are 7 things you need to know from the panel:
Lana will have her baby in the final episode of the season. According to the executive producers, Lana will deliver her baby in a South American country with Archer in attendance.
Cherlene is here to stay and she will be making her very own country album, called (of course) “Cherlene.” The album is expected to be released on Feb. 17, and will feature a remake of Kenny Loggins’ hit “Danger Zone” as a country song, with Cherlene and Loggins singing it as a duet. The press got to hear a clip of it at the panel and it actually sounds pretty good.
Kenny Loggins will also be a guest star on the show as himself, sort of. Loggins will play a “bastardized” version of himself, according to the executive producers. He will make an appearance in an episode about Lana’s baby shower and will somehow be involved in the festivities.
According to the executive producers, Malory will be “untethered” this season. “She is kind of directionless” until the end of the season when she will pick herself up.
Archer will enjoy his new position in life and continues to embrace his job as a drug dealer. He likes selling cocaine and will have a good time adopting a Miami Vice lifestyle. His biggest goal in life? To get a pet tiger. No word on whether or not he’ll make that dream a reality.
Pam will develop an addiction to cocaine, but she won’t be snorting it. Instead, Pam will be ingesting the substance in food and will sprinkle it in yogurt, spread it on bread and basically take it on any food she can find.
The list of guest stars this season will blow your socks off. Who can fans expect this season? Ron Perlman will be back, Gary Cole will be coming on for multiple episodes, Christian Slater will make an appearance, Fred Armisen will be doing multiple episodes as a dictator, plus Thomas Lennon and George Takei will also return.
