Archer is one of the most popular animation shows on television nowadays. The eighth season of the show will debut on April 5 and it promises to be even greater than the ones before. This time around, there will also be a hidden storyline. Fans can uncover hidden items through a companion smartphone app. The Archer, P.I. app will reportedly use augmented reality technology. Thanks to this, when fans watch an episode of the show, they can point their smartphone camera at the TV screen, while the app is running. This will show items that aren’t visible on the TV screen.
All the hidden objects and people come together in creating a new storyline. This is different from the one of the series and allows users to solve their own cases. The TV show is not the only one that hosts the hidden clues. Users can also find them in promotional videos for the show and on billboards. The videos are easily accessible on Facebook and over the internet. The billboards, unfortunately, aren’t present everywhere. Only users from places where these billboards are on display can find additional clues through these means.
The app is already available on Google Play and on the App Store. Users can download it before the new season kicks off. This way, they can become familiar with the application so they can use it when the first episode of season eight launches on April 5. We must admit, this is a truly innovative way to connect with fans. It definitely is a lot more interesting than just allowing them to get in contact with a show’s characters. The show first debuted back in 2009. After that, it’s popularity constantly raised. No wonder the show received a number of awards, including Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program, and Critics’ Choice Television Awards for Best Animated Series.
Archer is the story of an egocentric, yet funny and somewhat capable spy, Sterling Archer, and his colleagues at ISIS. The episodes present different cases, while they also follow the lives of the heroes. Ever since 2009, seven series appeared. Last year, FX renewed the series for an eighth, ninth, and tenth season, each to consist of eight episodes. The eight season will launch on Wednesday, April 5.
