Archer Gets A Third Season, Maybe More?

The future of the most outrageously fun half-hour comedy series on the air right now, FX’s biting adult spy comedy “Archer”, is looking rosy.

Vulture has learned that negotiations are well under way on a deal to renew the show for a third season, potentially in time for next week’s FX upfront presentation to advertisers.

Extended negotiations over the renewal have gone on for a few weeks, and their sources claim that might be a sign the network has been discussing the idea of a multi-year renewal like the three year deal it gave “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” back in 2008.

The critically acclaimed show, currently two-thirds of the way through airing its second season, delivered solid ratings in its first year and improved in its second.
