Created, written by and starring Fred Armisen ("Saturday Night Live" "Late Night with Seth Meyers") and Carrie Brownstein (WILD FLAG, Sleater-Kinney vocalist/guitarist), the Emmy(R)-nominated and Peabody(c) award-winning series returns with a new season of character-driven sketches taking place in the affable and absurd land of "Portlandia".

Among the Armisen and Brownstein characters returning for the latest installment of this surreal yet affectionate portrait of Portland, Oregon are Dave and Kath, two of the town's most uptight residents who decide to give relaxing a try; Spyke and his girlfriend, Iris, who struggle through a hard time at a bad Thai restaurant; and Nina and Lance, who recover from the trauma of a deceased pet.
An eclectic collection of talented guests visit Portlandia: Season 4 on this season: Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Vanessa Bayer ("Saturday Night Live"), Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia, Spider-Man), Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), singer-songwriter k.d. lang, Duff McKagan (Gun N' Roses, Velvet Revolver), Silas Weir Mitchell ("Grimm"), Michael Nesmith (The Monkees), Mark Proksch ("The Office"), Maya Rudolph (The Way, Way Back, Bridesmaids), columnist Dan Savage, Nick Swardson ("Reno 911!"), jazz duo Tuck and Patti, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and Olivia Wilde (HER, "House")!

Kyle MacLachlan ("How I Met Your Mother", "Desperate Housewives") also returns as Portlandia's clueless but lovable Mayor.
