We’re only a few days away from FXX official launch of Archer: 1999, but that doesn’t mean the network’s “promo-palooza” looks to be ending any time soon – all meant to get viewers psyched about the gang’s upcoming trip across time and space (and genres) ahead of its May 29th return. Now we’re getting yet another look at what fans can expect when The World’s Worst Spy Agency (still keeping out fingers crossed it gets back to that someday) takes to space to save the day (and cause as much damage as they can in the process).
From the benefits of not yelling and the awkwardness that comes when one of your two heads ain’t all that to the saddest, lamest game of “I Spy” in the entire galaxy, here’s another look at Archer: 1999.

In the past, Archer and the crew have found themselves in the film noir/dime novel detective-themed Archer: Dreamland. From there, it was a South Pacific world filled with spies, smuggling, and danger in Archer: Danger Island.
Here’s a look at the official trailer for Archer: 1999, shining a spotlight on the humorous side of sci-fi films like Alien – with our “special” team (in every sense of the word) of agents breaking beyond the bonds of Earth to spread humanity’s message across the universe.

Archer: 1999 is an animated, half-hour comedy that follows Sterling Archer, Lana Kane, and their crew of acid-tongued misfits onboard the M/V Seamus salvage ship.
