This week though, series creator Adam Reed has confirmed that the series will be coming to a close when it has run through its tenth season - three seasons on from now.

Speaking to the Murmur Podcast, he explained: "The plan is to end Archer after season 10. I don't know anybody that has talked about that, but that is my plan to do 8, 9, and 10 - and they're going to be shorter seasons of just eight episodes - and then wind it up."

Reed also spoke of his former plans: "I had sort of a brain explosion of a way I could do three more seasons and really keep my interest up. So the three seasons that are coming up are gonna be pretty different from what has come before, and they're gonna be different from each other."

Recently winning an Emmy award for Outstanding Animated Program, there's no telling exactly what else the show will achieve before it comes to an end. One thing is for certain though - it has cemented its place in television history.

Archer season 8 premieres in the US on FX next year.
