Like the three prior seasons, Portlandia’s fourth season promises no dearth of stellar special guests when it returns to IFC on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 10 pm ET. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein will be joined by brand new faces like Saturday Night Live’s Vanessa Bayer, Kirsten Dunst, Nick Swardson, Maya Rudolph, Olivia Wilde, Silas Weir Mitchell (Grimm), Mark Proksch (The Office), sex columnist Dan Savage, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and members of the Portland Trailblazers, which Allen owns.
In addition, a ton of musicians will also be appearing: Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio), Jello Biafra, Michael Nesmith (The Monkees), Jeff Tweedy, Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), jazz duo Tuck and Patti and former Guns n’ Roses bassist Duff McKagen are all scheduled to pop in.
And fear not, Portlandia purists. Familiar faces will return– faces that belong to Steve Buscemi, Ed Begley Jr., Annie Clark, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Sudeikis, Kumail Nanjiani, Gus Van Sant and, of course, Kyle MacLachlan— because how can a fictitious Portland operate without it’s amazingly dumb fictitious mayor?
