IFC Renews 'Portlandia'

Sketch comedy series gets callback for second season

Portlandia's parodic look at the Northwest city where "the dream of the '90s is alive" will return to IFC for a second season.

The series, created by Carrie Brownstein and Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen, debuted on Jan. 21 and has benefited from a host of celebrity guest stars, including Jason Sudeikis, Heather Graham, Kyle MacLachlan and local Portland, Ore., musicians Jenny Conlee and Colin Meloy (The Decemberists) and Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney).

IFC ordered 10 new half-hour episodes, which will premiere in January 2012.
