Archer’s trailer to tease its upcoming seventh season recreates the credits from 80s spy series Magnum P.I.

Archer Does Magnum P.I.

The trailer opens with a mustached rocking Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin), flying a helicopter, shirtless and loading a pistol, in Magnum’s naval officer uniform, leading a snorkeling lesson, cruising around in the red corvette, annoying Jonathan Higgins (Chris Parnell‘s Cyril Figgis) and teaming up with a female incarnation of T.C. (Aisha Tyler‘s Lana Kane).

At the end of the trailer it’s revealed that it was all a dream – one that Archer was retelling for his pals with the help of a few action figures and toy helicopters and cars. “And that’s the long and short of it,” he tells the group. “Any questions? Yes, Pam.”

“Are we still doing phrasing?”

For its sixth season, Archer fully embraced 80s crime drama series Miami Vice, going so far as to change the name of the show to Archer Vice. While it doesn’t look like Archer will be channeling Tom Selleck full time for Archer‘s seventh season, it’s possible that he’ll be working primarily as a private investigator.

Archer returns for a new season of shenanigans March 31 on FX.
