THE DREAM OF MORE "PORTLANDIA" IS ALIVE!

IFC Renews Hit Comedy for Two More Seasons

New York, NY - February 10, 2015 - Currently in its fifth season, IFC has renewed Portlandia for seasons six and seven, ordering ten half-hour episodes for each. Creators and stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, along with co-creator and director Jonathan Krisel, will remain at the helm of both seasons. Portlandia is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video.

"We are so excited to get to do more Portlandia with IFC," said Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein in a joint statement. "Getting to work with Jon and our talented writers and crew, it really is our favorite thing in the world. Also, we get to spend more time in Portland!"

"Portland may be a place where young people go to retire, but IFC is not retiring Portlandia," said Jennifer Caserta, IFC's president. "And if you order a book from Toni and Candace at the Feminist Bookstore right now, it might even arrive by the time season seven rolls around."

Over the past five seasons, Portlandia has expanded our knowledge of the peculiar characters of America's damp northwest. As we've come to know and love them - Malcolm and Kris with their helicopter parenting, Toni and Candace with their overzealous dedication to a cause, Bryce and Lisa with their taxidermy and pickling, or Doug and Claire's binge-watching - their idiosyncrasies have evolved from niche to normal.

Portlandia has seen some of the biggest names in movies, music and television pass through its city. In addition to recurring appearances by Vanessa Bayer, Ed Begley Jr., Steve Buscemi, Jeff Goldblum, Kyle MacLachlan, Kumail Nanjiani, Jason Sudeikis, Gus Van Sant and Olivia Wilde, guest stars over the past five seasons have included Roseanne Barr, Vanessa Bayer, Selma Blair, Rose Byrne, Kirsten Dunst, Shepard Fairey, Greta Gerwig, Heather Graham, Matt Groening, Oscar the Grouch, Anna Gunn, Bill Hader, k.d. lang, Juliette Lewis, Justin Long, Jane Lynch, Natasha Lyonne, Aimee Mann, Penny Marshall, Sarah McLachlan, Seth Meyers, Bobby Moynihan, Martina Navratilova, Patton Oswalt, Aubrey Plaza, Parker Posey, Paul Reubens, Tim Robbins, Maya Rudolph, Andy Samberg, Paul Simon, Amber Tamblyn, Eddie Vedder, Kristen Wiig and many more.

Shot entirely in Portland, Portlandia is created by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel. They also serve as writers, along with Karey Dornetto and Graham Wagner.

Season 5 of Portlandia airs Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT on IFC. Seasons 1-4 are available now on Netflix.
