Archer, FX network's cult spy comedy is all set to return for Season 6 and show creator Adam Reed has made it clear that they will not use the acronym ISIS in the upcoming hit animation series after the recent controversies related to the dreaded terrorist state.
Although there is no word about the plotline of the upcoming series, there are rumours that the series will focus on Sterling Archer's baby issues as the previous season ended with Lana delivering a baby girl, conceived through IVF.
But the show creator hinted that baby AJ will play an important role in the super hit animation series from FX.
"Archer is going to end up taking baby A.J. and the toddler Seamus on a covert mission for hilarity to ensue—trying to break into the CIA, but he's got these two babies in tow. That will probably happen somewhere in the middle of the season," Reed told the Daily Beast.
Reed also explained why he introduced Archer and Lana's baby during the Season 5 finale.
"I worry that people will get bored of the show, so I figure, "Here comes cousin Oliver!" But the baby's not along on every mission. It's like shows where the kid would ostensibly be part of the family, but then you're just like, "Oh, where's our kids? They're over at Joe's house," and they won't be in the rest of the episode."
During a radio interview the show creator hinted at the return of the key villain, Barry.
"Barry comes back in a big way and is going to be the key villain of the season," Reed said. "Things go bad pretty quickly also for Barry, physically," Reed told the Geek World Radio via Enstarz.
The fan favourite show has been revolving around the prominent spy agency ISIS (International Secret Intelligence Service) until its fifth season, but will remove the name in Season 6.
"We quietly did, e got sort of lucky and could organically make a merger with the CIA, so we went back and retroactively painted out the ISIS logos in parts of the show, and we just don't talk about it in dialogue," Reed told Daily Beast.
Archer Season 6 may premiere in January next year on FX network.
