Net has ordered 13 episodes for season two, which will launch in 2011. FX is showing confidence in the series by increasing its episode order. Ten episodes were ordered in season one.

Through seven episodes, the skein about a dysfunctional spy agency is averaging 1.2 million viewers and has drawn the most viewers of any first-season FX comedy besides “The League,” which also has received a season-two pickup. “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” generated 1.1 million viewers in its first season and has had an impressive run, gaining strength over the years. Sitcom recently concluded its fifth season and the cast also tours the country as part of a comedy showcase.

“We’re very happy with the audience response and critical acclaim for ‘Archer’ and are excited to move forward with it,” said exec VP of original programming Nick Grad.

Also on the comedy front, FX recently announced the premiere for “Louie,” from exec producer Louis C.K., has been moved to June 1, and will be paired with hourlong Denis Leary starrer “Rescue Me.”

“Archer” is exec produced by Adam Reed and Matthew Thompson, and produced by FX Prods.
