"They say you can never go home again," executive producer Matt Thompson says of plans to have Sterling Archer wake up from his three-year coma for Season 11. "Archer goes home again and finds that everything’s changed." Fellow executive producer Casey Wills adds: "As we were doing these seasons of genre-hopping, we started thinking about how interesting it would be if Archer were to wake up to a world that’s had to move on without him. We thought it was so interesting that we wanted to do another season and explore that dynamic. In his coma we found out what’s important to Archer, and we want to see how he’s going to react when he’s back in the real world."
