Archer Vice is the name given to the fifth season of Archer. The season was ordered by FX on February 27, 2013,  Archer Vice consisted of thirteen episodes and began airing on January 13, 2014 on Monday nights at 10 PM.
Season 5 is the first season to be a Themed Season and have a season sub-title: "Archer Vice".
Originally scheduled for a premiere in February, this was the first time that the series was scheduled to premier a season outside of January, with the exception of promotional runs and teaser premiers.
The opening Title Sequence has been remade for this season, with some minor changes. Cheryl's action changes slightly, Cyril uses a walkie-takie in his action, Malory takes a longer drink in her action, and Lucky Yates, the voice of Dr. Krieger, was added to the main credited cast.
Episodes in this season appear to be more connected than episodes in previous seasons due to a continuous running plotline.
Note: Video streaming site Netflix is currently playing the season out of airing order, with Smugglers' Blues following Southbound and Down and Baby Shower airing after On the Carpet, which is the order the episodes were produced. It only causes one continuity problem, as the gang is shown to still have plenty of cocaine in Baby Shower, however it is revealed to be gone after Krieger blows most of it up in On the Carpet. This makes it impossible for Baby Shower to take place after On the Carpet, as it does on Netflix.
The title 'Archer Vice', along with the art style and character clothing, refers to the popular 80's television series, 'Miami Vice' and the popular video game "Grand Theft Auto Vice City.
The phrase that was used most often by the characters for Season 5 is "Your words", as well as a continuing focus on the fact "phrasing" was no longer a running gag.
