IFC announced today a roster of guest stars who will be visiting the network's hit original series Portlandia when the show returns in January. Penny Marshall, Jack McBrayer, Tim Robbins, Andy Samberg, Amber Tamblyn, and Kristen Wiig will partake in Portlandia's satirical rendering of this Pacific Northwest community's quirkiness. As previously announced, Kyle MacLachlan will return as Portlandia 's Mayor and Mary Lynn Rajskub will also guest star. Season two premieres Monday, January 9 at 10pm ET/PT on IFC.
Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein as a variety of wonderfully eccentric characters including Peter and Nance, a bohemian couple caught up in the organic and local food movement; Bryce Shivers and Lisa Everesman, an arty and obsessive couple; and Toni and Candice, the formerly activist, self-involved shopkeepers of the feminist bookstore "Women and Women First." In addition to the current inhabitants, several new residents will be moving in for season two.
Shot entirely on location in Portland, OR the series is directed, co-created and co-written by Jonathan Krisel, executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video. For IFC, the series is executive produced by Jennifer Caserta, Debbie Demontreux, Dan Pasternack and Evan Shapiro.
