FX has decided to make today the day they remind us that they have the market cornered on both quality drama and comedy on television. They just announced return dates for the crime drama, Justified, and the hilariously over-the-top animated spy comedy, Archer.
Justified will return to the network with a third season on Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The series stars Timothy Olyphant as renegade Miami-based U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, who is relocated to his home town in rural Kentucky as punishment for his consistent malfeasance. Surrounded by the figures of his past, Givens combats where he comes from with where he wants to go in life, all the while trying to maintain justice is his new/old hometown.
Archer will also return to FX for a third season on Thursday, Jan 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The animated series, starring omnipresent voice actor H. Jon Benjamin, follows the misadventures of the narcissistic manchild and destructive force that is Sterling Archer…who just so happens to also be the top spy at ISIS, a secret agent organization run by Archer’s mother Mallory (Jessica Walters). Although Archer is the biggest jerk in the department, his coworkers aren’t exactly model citizens (or entirely sane) either.
Joining FX this year will be Unsupervised, another animated FX comedy that follows two teenaged best friends in their day-to-day exploits. Unsupervised features the voices of Kristen Bell, David Hornsby, Justin Long, Kristen Olsen and Fred Armisen – to name a few. It will follow Archer‘s season premiere, debuting on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
