  • 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 main opening sequence has been remade for this season, with some minor changes. Cheryl's action changes slightly, Cyril uses a pen 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.
  • 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. 
  • This season is the first of the series to not feature Barry Dylan, Bilbo, or Boris in any episodes.
  • Archer: Vice was poorly received by many fans and reviewers, citing the character changes as more annoying than funny and the change of tone wearing thin quickly. Following the end of season 5, the show returned to its original spy format.
