Archer Season 12 Update: Archer had been made some new changes for season 12 on FX, FXX, and Hulu in 2021. What are the expectations of a newly-mature sterling?

As we all know it is hard to expect things from archer season 12 when producers of the animated action series had been willing to change the settings and the genres at a drop of a hat.

As we follow this series over the years, the spy agency had become a drug cartel (season 5), also a private detective business (season 7), and the crew of a spaceship (season 10).

But season 11 is pointing to the return of Serling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) to the real world, it indicates that the new season (season 12) will drive more deeply into his personal relations and to show more about the family dynamics apart from office politics.

Archer is launched in 2009 as a hysterically funny spy satire focused on “the world’s greatest secret agent” Sterling Archer, his ex-girlfriend Lana and their various dysfunctional co-workers. Sterling Archer, an alcoholic ladies person, often throw missions off course in stalking of his personal agenda, only to later rescue teammates from his inability via hand-to-hand combat and sharpshooting.

Sterling’s ignorance for others generated frustration and chaos among the team members of the spy agency, showcasing their own moral fault. The show uses vulgar jokes alongside sophisticated high-brow humor, serves a variety of audiences.

There is the possibility of the impact of corona on the air date of season 12, with the release of season 11 have been pushed back to nine months because of the COVID-19.

As Hollywood gets back to the work, Archer’s animated formal will give a boost to the comedies that have to bring in large casts and crews to make a film outside the sound studio.

Sterling’s initial humility quickly wears off, but as he is in a coma for three years that experience does leave him a changed person.

As shown in the final episodes of season 11, Archer wants to make Lana jealous by a double date and reconnect with his daughter AJ. Both the episodes ended with a small reflection in Archer, thinking how he about to change in his life to make a positive in him.

As Archer is a secret agent the season ends with a classic spy mission to save the world from destruction. Sterling gains a big achievement which makes him advance to his future career by overcoming a near-death experience.

But there are some unanswered about his personal life. Will he get into relation with Lana again? Does he need her in his life? How he will take responsibility for his daughter AJ? As the character of Archer goes deep and became mature, season 12 may be focused on his interpersonal problems other than his job. As Lana got married to Robert this makes the new episodes of season 12 as family drama and comedy.
