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.
