"Portlandia," IFC's very funny send-up of Portland, just got a pair of new seasons -- a 4th and 5th. This also means Fred Armisen, who stars with Carrie Brownstein, will continue to be gainfully employed, now that his "Saturday Night Live" run has ended.

"IFC has renewed its hit original comedy series 'Portlandia' for fourth and fifth seasons. Each season will feature 10 half-hour episodes, to premiere in early 2014 and early 2015, respectively. The Emmy® nominated, Peabody and WGA Award-winning series is created and written by Fred Armisen ("SNL") and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney), stars of the show, and Jonathan Krisel, the show’s director. Portlandia is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video."
