Season SynopsisEdit

Suave secret agent Sterling Archer is the world’s most dangerous spy, but political intrigue and global crises are nothing compared to the sexual tension and human resources crises at the intelligence agency where he works. Archer must deal with his over-bearing, over-sexed mother--who is also his boss--and his femme fatale ex-girlfriend who seems to be sleeping with everyone except him. Embezzlement, mind control, hangovers, and demented double crossings--they’re all in a day’s work in this outrageously raunchy comedy!

Season CastEdit

  • Guest Starring : ( Listed Alphabetically )


  • Archer was one of three new comedy pilots ordered by FX in July 2009. The other two pilots ordered were for The League (2009-2015) and Louie (2010-Present), both of which were included as bonus material on the Archer's season 1 DVD.
  • In 2009, FX network officially greenlit production of the series, ordering six episodes and an additional four scripts. [1]
  • FX originally planned on pairing Archer with the fifth season of the network's situation comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia on Thursday nights believing it would find support among their fans.[2] However, the network learned of the month-long production period needed to create the necessary six episodes, and realized that there was not enough time to have all of the episodes ready before Philadelphia began its new season.[3]
  • FX instead decided to release a sneak airing of the pilot episode "Mole Hunt" on September 17, 2009, without any promotion or announcement.

  • The opening Title Sequence was changed to include Amber Nash beginning with the first episode "Swiss Miss".
  • Some other changes were noticed by fans of the show. One of the most notable being Archer's skills as the "world's most dangerous spy." In Season 1, his skills as a spy were not showcased very often, so many fans believed he lacked many of the skills. This was proven otherwise with this season's first episode, "Swiss Miss." Here Archer had many opportunities to show that he was a fairly capable field agent.
  • This season increased the show's focus on the Archer supporting cast. This included adding more frequent appearances by the character of Ray Gillette. Instead of being chained to the ISIS control room, he has now been able to get out and about as an ISIS field agent. Also, details about the backstories of Pam, Cheryl and Doctor Krieger were revealed.
  • Furthermore, this season saw the addition of numerous two-part episodes. These were episodes in which the broad story was told over two episodes. They didn't follow the traditional television model of adding a "to be continued" tag at the end, but they did end "Stage Two" and "White Nights" on somewhat dramatic cliffhangers.
  • On a side note, every episode of the second season starts with a character's face at least partially obscured by the TV rating box in the upper left corner of the screen. This was done on purpose by the creator as a protest to a previous accidental incident in which they refused to move the box.
