Both TV Squad and the Huffington Post have announced that Portlandia has been renewed for a second season, while still having two of the six season one episodes yet to air. The network has ordered 10 new half-hour episodes to premiere in January 2012.
“We’re thrilled with the success of Portlandia and the overwhelmingly positive feedback from
our viewers,” IFC’s senior vice president of original programming Debbie DeMontreux said in the announcement. “Fred and Carrie’s humor is perfectly in line with the sensibility and comedic tone of IFC which makes this show such a great fit for us. This early renewal signifies that IFC’s alt comedy programming is indeed resonating with our audience.”
It has not been confirmed yet if Portlandia will be coming back to film season two in Portland in 2011 but here’s hoping they return.
