Fans of Jessica Walter, who died March 24 at the age of 80, will have the chance to bid farewell and celebrate the beloved actress when the popular FXX animated series returns for its 12th season later this year.
Season 12 of Archer is currently in production, and I hear he recently packed the cast’s voice recordings – which are done first – before the episodes were animated. It’s unclear how many episodes of the Walter series will be in next season, but I hear she’s been working on Archer until the end. “She loved this show so much and was grateful for it every day,” said a friend of Walter’s.
Walter plays one of the main characters on Archer, Malory Archer, the former abrasive CEO of ISIS and mother of Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin). The role earned her two Annie nominations.
