Portlandia Sets Season 5 Premiere Date

Portlandia Season 5 Premiere Date

If you’ve ever wondered what Women & Women First looked like long before it opened its doors, Portlandia‘s fifth season — bowing in January — is for you.

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch-comedy series returns to IFC on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015 (10/9c) for a fifth season, the network announced Thursday.

Expect the episodes to go deep with your favorite characters, such as feminist bookstore owners Toni and Candace, who’ll reveal how they came to open Portland’s lady-championing storefront.

The 10-episode season’s slate of guest-stars features faces both familiar and new; it includes Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live), Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha), Jeff Goldblum (Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad), Jane Lynch (Glee), Natasha Lyonne (Orange Is the New Black), Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks), late-night host Seth Meyers, Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash), Parker Posey, Paul Reubens (Pee-wee’s Playhouse), singer/songwriter Paul Simon, Olivia Wilde (House) and Sesame Street‘s Oscar the Grouch.

Elsewhere in the season: Bryce and Lisa’s taxidermy business is vandalized, Fred and Carrie try to buy a home in Portland’s high-stakes real-estate market, Lance and Nina look into couples’ therapy and Kris and Malcolm publicly fail as parents.

    Can’t imagine seeing Fred Armisen pulling double duty on Portlandia and rocking it out with the 8G Band on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Still missed him on SNL.
