IFC’s silly sketch show Portlandia is coming to an end.
According to EW, the network announced that the show, which stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, has been renewed for an an eighth season–this will be the show’s last.
Portlandia is a wacky show, set in Portland, Oregon, that had many really good sketches (about hipsters and more) and guest appearances over the years.
“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,” IFC president Jennifer Caserta said in a statement. “It has been at the heart of our ‘slightly-off’ comedy programming strategy since its inception. It is a joy and a privilege to work with Fred, Carrie, Jon, [executive producer] Lorne Michaels, and everyone at Broadway Video to create a show that was prescient in its satirization of modern culture while having a sensibility and state of mind that has only become more prevalent across its run.”
Portlandia Season 7 is currently running, while Season 8 is expected to premiere in 2018.
