'Archer' Season 4 preview: Sterling Archer and company describe their perfect day [Video]

Yahoo TV

A perfect day in the life of suave spy guy Sterling Archer … what would that be like? Unsurprisingly, it would involve lots of food, alcohol, and hookers, as Archer himself -- voiced by Emmy nominee H. Jon Benjamin -- reveals in a new video touting the Jan. 17 Season 4 premiere of "Archer."

Archer and his ISIS cohorts will return for 13 new episodes, beginning with the season premiere, "Fugue and Riffs," which finds Archer suffering from amnesia after a traumatic event that only he would find traumatizing.

The episode also includes a clever nod to "Bob's Burgers," the Fox animated comedy in which Benjamin also stars.

Meanwhile, the Jan. 24 episode, "The Wind Cries Mary," features a hilarious guest appearance by "Justified" star Timothy Olyphant, who plays Archer's onetime BFF.

Archer's former girlfriend (voiced by Aisha Tyler) -- and fellow spy -- Lana tries to describe her perfect day, only to have her ex once again interrupt:

When Mama Archer, Malory (Jessica Walter), describes her perfect day, we're yet again reminded of why Archer is so … the way he is:

A perfect day for ISIS human resources director Pam Poovey (Amber Nash) involves indulging her many appetites (including a meal she's dubbed "dunch"):

ISIS comptroller Cyril (Chris Parnell) reveals that his perfect day might involve the death of a certain pompous spy, and Cyril seems to have given a lot of thought as to the many ways the death could occur:

And Malory's secretary, Cheryl (Judy Greer), says her perfect day would be her wedding day, but then … well, it's important to remember that Cheryl has sniffed a lot of rubber cement and indulged in a lot of recreational pharmaceuticals:

"Archer" Season 4 premieres Thursday, 1/17 at 10 PM on FX.
