Come Season 5, the show took a radical departure from its usual approach to prevent SeasonalRot. In the first episode, the FBI closes down ISIS, citing that the agency was never actually legally sanctioned in the first place. No longer spies but unwilling to be unemployed, the staff remain in Malory's employ to further help her "dispose" of the leftover evidence in her concealed vault: a literal, not figurative, [[InsistentTerminology metric tonne]] of ISIS-confiscated cocaine, worth about fifty million dollars, literally changing the entire premise of the show from a spy agency to a drug cartel. From that point on, the season was dubbed ''[[NewSeasonNewName Archer Vice]]''. The ''Vice'' story finished in the season finale, with ISIS (no longer using that name [[RealLifeWritesThePlot because of the real life terrorist group]]) heading into Season 6 with a new direction: being subcontracted by the CIA. After a string of failures, they are permanently blacklisted from espionage, and, in Season 7, the cast moves to UsefulNotes/LosAngeles and starts a private detective agency.

When Adam Reed, the creator of ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2021}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/FriskyDingo'', went to Creator/AdultSwim with the idea for '''''Archer'''''--a show [[WordOfGod aptly described as]] "''Film/JamesBond'' meets ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''"--the network passed it over. The FX network saw potential in ''Archer'', however, and greenlit the show, which began to air in September 2009.[[note]]To their credit, [adult swim] plugs it every so often during their bumps.[[/note]] Creator/ComedyCentral also airs it on Monday nights.
