TORONTO, Jan. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Master spy Sterling Archer's debonair charm returns to TELETOON at Night in the highly-anticipated Season 5 of Archer, making its Canadian premiere on Monday, January 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, day-and-date with FX in the U.S. New episodes of this award-winning series will premiere Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TELETOON at Night each week, with episodes repeating Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
"Archer has quickly emerged as the new must-see adult animation show and has gained a huge cult following over the past four seasons," said Carole Bonneau, Vice President, Programming, TELETOON Canada Inc. "We are thrilled to now give Canadian fans immediate access to this smash hit by presenting the fifth season day-and-date with the U.S. broadcast."
Archer is an animated, half-hour comedy that revolves around the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous, every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the ISIS staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain. The series features the voices of H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Adam Reed and Lucky Yates. Archer was created by Adam Reed who also serves as Executive Producer, alongside Executive Producer Matt Thompson and their Floyd County Productions who animates the series. Archer is produced by FX Productions. Season 5 consists of 13 half-hour episodes.
In the lead-up to the new season, from Monday, January 6 to Friday, January 10 at 11 p.m. ET/PT, TELETOON at Night will present special "How to Archer" episodes from previous Archer seasons, showcasing how to become more like the attractive and suave Sterling Archer in the areas of espionage, style, women and cocktails among others.
