New York, NY - December 10, 2013 - Fred, Carrie, Toni, Candace, Lance, Nina and many more of Portlandia's most loved and eccentric characters are back for a fourth season of the Emmy(R)-nominated, WGA and Peabody award-winning comedy series. With ten all-new episodes this season, Portlandia premieres on Thursday, February 27 at 10:00pm ET/PT on IFC.

An array of talented guests will visit co-creators and stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein in Portlandia 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). Paul Allen and members of the Portland Trail Blazers also stop by this season.

Returning guests from previous seasons include Ed Begley Jr. (Arrested Development, Pineapple Express), Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Jeff Goldblum (The League), Kumail Nanjiani (Newsreaders, Franklin & Bash), Jason Sudeikis (Eastbound & Down, We're The Millers) and director Gus Van Sant (Promised Land, Milk). Kyle MacLachlan (How I Met Your Mother, The Good Wife) will also be back as Portlandia's clueless but lovable Mayor.

Jennifer Caserta, president and general manager of IFC said, "Whether there is no shortage of celebrities who want to visit Portland, or Portlandia has an endless number of friends, it's good news for IFC viewers and we're once again blown away by the creativity and talent this show brings to our air every season."

To see Fred and Carrie announce the new season themselves, watch the video on IFC's Instagram account that posted this morning: http://instagram.com/p/hvwpq2lWnd/

Created as an affectionate love letter to Portland, Oregon, Portlandia expands the boundaries of gentle satire and social commentary. Nothing is safe this season as Fred and Carrie have fun with bacon mania, couples sharing finances, technology overload, wannabe musicians, dog lovers and more. Portlandia's most familiar faces will encounter new characters such as eco-terrorists Benji and Dakota, vivid storytellers Robert and Gabriella, and restaurant workers Troy and Lillian.

Shot entirely on location in Portland, Portlandia is co-created and co-written by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel, who is also the series director. Portlandia is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video.

Portlandia seasons one, two and three are available now on Netflix, just in time for viewers to catch up over the holidays in time for Portlandia's return in the New Year.
