Season SynopsisEdit

The season will be set in 1939, just as Japan's war with China enters its second year and Germany has just annexed Austria and taken Czechslovakia.

“In the middle of this, seaplane pilot and semi-functioning alcoholic Sterling Archer is drinking, screwing, gambling, and generally bumbling around French Polynesia with a smart-ass parrot named Crackers,” executive producer Matt Thompson explained at the Archer panel. “Welcome to Danger Island.”

Lana is still MIA, as Aisha Tyler's new role will be as a princess. Jessica Walter will still play Sterling's mom Malory Archer - this time, a bar owner - and H. Jon Benjamin will also play Archer as we currently know him, “except that he’s got an eye patch and he’s a sea pilot.” Pam will be Archer's “loyal sidekick and co-pilot", Judy Greer is heiress Charlotte, who initially arrived on the island to celebrate her honeymoon, but “her new husband caught her in bed with Archer and took off.” Chris Parnell will be adopting the German accent this time around to play a Nazi intelligence officer pretending to be a breadfruit exporter, and, hilariously, Lucky Yates will be the voice of Crackers the parrot.

“Last season, we loved it, but things got pretty dark, pretty fast,” said Thompson. “And [Archer creator] Adam Reed had talked about just doing something that’s fun and just having a blast with this season. So we basically stuck all these people on this tiny volcanic island, and we’re just going to have as much as fun as we can, with quicksand, cannibals, super intelligent monkeys, and a volcano, and a talking f**king parrot.”

TriviaEdit

  • Season 9 : Danger Island is the second season to take place fully in Archer's head as a "coma dream".
    • The first season to be a coma dream was Season 8 : Archer Dreamland.
  • Season 9 is the third season to be a subtitled Themed Season :
  • Danger Island, is a possible reference to the Hanna-Barbera live-action adventure serial Danger Island (1968-69).
  • The visual style of Danger Island bears a strong resemblance to the short-lived 1982 ABC series Tales of the Gold Monkey.
  • The opening title sequence has once again been changed to reflect Season 9's overall tropical island theme.
  • The Opening Theme Music has once again been altered. It has been given more of a tropic sound to match the theme of this season.
  • Season 9 was ordered along with Season 8 and Season 10 in 2016.[1]
  • The Morse Code Cyril (Fuchs) writes in the title sequence translates to 934TXS
