Adam Reed and Floyd County Productions created “Archer,” which is executive produced by Reed and Matt Thompson. The new deal keeps the show on FX through its eighth, ninth and tenth seasons – and perhaps more beyond that. Each season is eight episodes.

“We can’t say enough about what Adam, Matt and the entire ‘Archer’ team at Floyd County have done to keep this series so insanely funny and vital through seven seasons,” Grad said.

‘Archer’ centers on a former spy agency turned private investigation firm and the lives of its employees. The show also mined new stories in its move in Season 7 to Los Angeles.
