‘Portlandia’ Sets Eighth and Final Premiere for January, Plus New and Returning Guests
We’re not quite ready to say goodbye to Portlandia just yet, but thankfully, we have time. The ever-weird social satire will return for its eighth and final season in January, while the traditionally stacked guest roster now includes Tessa Thompson, Rachel Bloom and the Oh, Hello guys.
Per AMC and IFC’s official confirmation, the final season of Portlandia will premiere the first of its last ten episodes on Thursday, January 18 at 10:00 P.M. New additions for the season include 30 Rock alum Scott Adsit, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator Rachel Bloom, SNL favorite Aidy Bryant, musician Brendan Canty, John Corbett, Terry Crews, Dan Gregor, Cherry Jones, Rashida Jones, Andy Kindler, Oh, Hello stars Nick Kroll and John Mulaney (in character), Krist Novoselic, Henry Rollins, Tracee Ellis Ross, novelist Cheryl Strayed, Tessa Thompson, Wet Hot creator David Wain, Brent Weinbach, Dolly Wells, Shannon Woodward and singer-songwriter Kurt Vile.
But why stop there? Returning for final bows are guest stars Ed Begley Jr., Jeff Goldblum, Natasha Lyonne, Kyle MacLachlan and Kumail Nanjiani. We’ll probably have a trailer in the next few months, but stay tuned for the latest on Portlandia Season 8, and get ready to say goodbye to Fred and Carrie.
