Sterling Archer and the agency navigate the changing landscape of the spy world and face a new threat: a spy conglomerate known as IIA (International Intelligence Agency).

  • This will be the last season to feature Jessica Walter as the voice of Malory Archer following her death in March 2021; Walter had recorded most of her lines for the season beforehand. Due to Jessica’s death, the ending of Season 12 was changed somewhat to have Malory retire from Spying to live out the rest of her life with her husband Ron who was voiced by Jessica’s real life husband who passed away in 2019.
