In anticipation of the upcoming fourth season of Portlandia on IFC, comedic duo Carrie Browenstein and Fred Armisen — the show’s creators and stars — have teamed up with famed photographer Alex Prager for a series of bustling shots that perfectly encapsulate the series. In true Portland fashion, the intersection of absurd and art finds these two smack dab in the middle of it all. Gosh, could these two be any better?
The dream of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein is alive on IFC starting February 27. That's right, curio collectors, Portlandia is back, and the ode to all things nineties and homemade is bringing through a veritable cavalcade of guest stars — twenty-five, to be exact — to usher in the funny and absurd nature of the Pacific Northwest's crafty crown jewel. Musicians, actors, and even the occasional basketball player or two will be on hand to skewer (with love!) the town most noted for its unwavering commitment to staying weird.
The dream of the 90s will remain alive on IFC for years to come. The cable channel announced today that they've renewed Portlandia for two more seasons, which will keep the show on the air through 2015. So it seems stars and creators Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen will have to find more ways to poke fun at hipster culture for seasons to come.
Spoiler alert! This clip from the upcoming third season of IFC's Portlandia is full of spoilers… from other shows and movies. Ever sit around and try to discuss your favorite TV shows and films with other people, some of whom aren't caught up or haven't gotten around to seeing that particular film? That's what the people in this funny scene are doing. And in the process, Portlandia squeaks in some pretty major spoilers from previously aired TV shows.
Part of the fun of IFC's sketch comedy series Portlandia is spotting the occasional guest star who might stop by the quirky town for a bit. We already knew that Chloe Sevigny is set to appear in the series' third season, and here's hoping she has more fun in Portland than Sevigny's character had in Briarcliff on American Horror Story: Asylum, right? Sevigny's not the only guest star set to appear this season. A whole host of other celebrities are lined up to join Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein in Season 3.
Portlandia Season 2 features many returning favorites from Season 1, as well as several new characters, a bit more structure and ten episodes instead of six. But even with the expansion there is still a sense of ‘second verse same as the first’ so if you were a fan of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s Oregonian sketch comedy exploits the first time around then you should definitely be visiting the second season.
The dream of the 90s is still alive in Portland. IFC's popular comedy series Portlandia returns next year (with a special episode airing next month). This new clip gives us a look at what's going on in Portlandia's Portland these days.
Big Love's Chloe Sevigny is already set for a small screen role, joining the FX horror-drama series American Horror Story for its second season. And now it looks like we'll be seeing her in Portlandia at some point in the comedy series' third season.

When IFC’s Portlandia first premiered, the series kicked off with a musical number about the dream of the ’90’s and the city of Portland, where all of the hot girls wear glasses and young people go to retire. This Friday’s episode will feature a follow up song. The dream of the ’90’s is still alive in Portland!... the 1890’s, anyway...
Is everyone a DJ in Portlandia? It’s certainly looking that way in one of the clips we have to show you from this Friday’s episode. And then there’s the adventures of two very enthusiastic dog owners as they take their canine to the dog park.
As someone who has the tendency to compulsively hoard grocery bags for later use, I feel very little guilt when I forget my more environmentally friendly reusable grocery bag. But I’m also fortunate enough to visit grocery stores that don’t serve a side-dish of awkwardness when such a scenario takes place, unlike Jack McBrayer’s character in this Friday’s episode of Portlandia.
The dream of the ’90’s may be alive in Springfield. Just a week after IFC’s comedy series Portlandia returned for its second season comes word that series creators and stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are headed to Fox for a guest spot on the network’s long-running animated comedy series The Simpsons.
IFC’s Portlandia returned to television for its second season last week and beginning next week, stars (and creators) of the IFC comedy series Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein will go on tour across the country.

From the sound of it, IFC is looking to strike while the iron is hot. With some great buzz surrounding the returns of their original comedy series The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret and Portlandia, the network is set to build on their line-up of original comedies with two more series.
