Sketch comedy Portlandia has been renewed for an eighth and final season by IFC.
Shot on location in Portland the show stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein two thirds of the writing team behind the show which is the flagship of IFC.
Jennifer Caserta said, “We are very proud of the show. There are very few shows that can be credited with both establishing and helping to define a television network, and that’s exactly what Portlandia has done for IFC. It has been at the heart of our ‘slightly-off’ comedy programming strategy since its inception. But all good things must come to an end, and we very much look forward to Season 8 or as Bryce Shivers and Lisa Eversman might say…put a bird on it!“
The show attracted a wide variety of guest stars over the year including Louis C.K., Claire Danes, Judy Greer, Kristen Wiig, Damian Lillard, Natasha Lyonne, Lauri Metcalf, Glenn Danzig, Rose Byrne, recurring guests Kyle MacLachlan, Steve Buscemi, Jeff Goldblum and Kumail Nanjiani.
