Portlandia Returns S5

Don’t miss the Emmy®-nominated comedy Portlandia, as it returns for its fifth season on January 8th at 10pm ET on IFC!

Co-creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein aren’t strangers to SXSW, having appeared on SXSW Comedy Panels two years straight. Last year’s panel gave attendees an inside look into the creation of the hit series.

Through Fred and Carrie’s variety of overly well-intentioned characters, this new season continues to delve deeper into the lives of the Portlandia residents we’ve grown to know and love. The premier of the season on January 8th at 10pm ET takes viewers back in time to see the origins of everyone’s favorite feminist bookstore owners Toni and Candace. By the end of the episode, our perception of Toni and Candace will never be the same.

The season features brand new guest appearances from artist Shepard Fairey, Greta Gerwig, Matt Groening, Anna Gunn, Justin Long, Jane Lynch, Natasha Lyonne, Seth Meyers, Paul Reubens, Paul Simon and Oscar the Grouch.

It also sees the return of guest stars Vanessa Bayer, Jeff Goldblum, Kyle MacLachlan, Kumail Nanjiani, Olivia Wilde and Steve Buscemi.

Binge-watch past seasons and catch-up on what’s happening on Portlandia when IFC airs a marathon of episodes all day on New Year’s Day, January 1st. Portlandia season 1-4 are also available on Netflix and iTunes.
