Tonight marks the much anticipated season premiere of the hit IFC comedy show Portlandia, as the show is finally returning after a hiatus. While the show is premiering on schedule, there was some doubt as to if the show would come back on time or if it would take a break much like the Emmy-nominated FX show Louie did.
But the hiatus was of normal length and the show is officially back in our lives on IFC. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein return with the comedy gold in the premiere episode entitled “Sharing Finances”, as we’re in for new episodes each week.
Armisen recently took the job as Seth Meyers Late Night band leader, but he’s assured fans of the series that it won’t cut into his time on the show too much. Being a driving force behind Portlandia, as well as the star and writer, the IFC series cannot exist without Armisen, which is why doubt was cast over the future of the series.
But even if the fifth season is hazy at the moment, a fourth season arrives tonight and we had better enjoy Portlandia while it lasts.
