The Emmys come only but once a year. And this year's looks to be more diverse than ever, comedy wise that is. The usual suspects like Veep are there but then newcomers like Samantha Bee and Pamela Aldon join the fun. The Emmys air on Sunday, September 17th at 8 PM. Stephen Colbert will host so we know who's not winning his award...(jk I don't know).
As he takes time off from making more Louie episodes, being a cop in movies, or producing a Zack Galifianakis series, comedian Louis C.K. is set to show his mug on IFC's Portlandia. Production of the current season just wrapped but Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen both put up photos of themselves with C.K. This is great and all but, dang it Louis, I need my Louie fix.
Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are busy people. Both have several projects in the works from Brownstein's revival of Slater-Kinney and her book writing to Armisen's work on Late Night with Seth Myers and Documentary Now, which got a double season renewal months ago. With so much to do, the duo has decided to end the run of IFC's hit hipster phenomenon Portlandia. Splitsider found the news in an interview with The Oregonian.
The show has been renewed for seasons six and seven so eight is probably a given. The show is IFC's longest running series even now in its upcoming season. Jen Caserta, IFC President, is very supporting in the program stating "I will do this show until there's no more show to do." Portlandia was also the first series on the network since its rebranding from the Independent Film Channel.
January is going to be a packed month with the return of a guest star filled Portlandia.
Millions of people are appearing on the show some returning stars like Jeff Goldblum, Kumail Nanjiani, Olivia Wilde and some newcomers like Seth Meyers, Matt Groening, Paul Reubens, Parker Posey, Brigitte Nielsen, Natasha Lyonne, Anna Gunn, Justin Long, and Oscar the Grouch.
The new season premieres on January 8th at 10 PM on IFC.
