New York comic con attendees were given an explosive sneak peek of the season 5 premiere of Archer on FX network. For the spoiler-phobic, there will be no huge secrets divulged except to say that this season will be much different for Sterling Archer and the employees of ISIS. In essence, Season 5 is a total game-changer.
The panel included series creator Adam Reed as well as the majority of the cast: H. Jon Benjamin, Jessica Walter, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Amber Nash and Lucky Yates. One amusing sight was seeing first-time comic con guest Jessica Walter’s face as multiple fans cosplaying as her character were invited to show off their costumes.
As you can probably guess, a panel for an adult-oriented animated show featuring comedians and comedy actors got a little foul-mouthed and risqué. In particular, H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler and Lucky Yates did not disappoint. Was tentacle porn discussed? Absolutely. In addition, when asked what she was looking forward to doing in the upcoming season, Ms. Tyler mentioned that she was looking forward to her now pregnant character doing all of the things a pregnant woman shouldn’t be doing. “I’m crowning and I’m shooting!”
