The dream is almost over in Portland. It’s bittersweet, but Portlandia season 8 will be the final season of the breakout sketch comedy. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein introduced us to a city where the young go to retire back in 2011 and we’ve felt at home ever since.
We’ll get to say goodbye to all of our favorite characters in 2018, and see an impressive crop of guest stars this season. Here’s what we know so far about Portlandia Season 8…
Portlandia Season 8 Release Date
The beginning of the end: Portlandia’s final season premieres on Thursday, January 18th at 10 p.m. on IFC. The season consists of 10 episodes.
