‘Portlandia’ Gets Season 8 Renewal – No Season 9
“Portlandia” kicked off its seventh season on Jan 5, 2017 on IFC, gaining 0.161 million viewers with a 0.07 demo rating among adults (18-49) and has been praised by critics and viewers as usual. Most likely, many fans of the sketch comedy series are wondering whether or not we will see “Portlandia” Season 8 on IFC, and if this happens, when should we expect its release date? Fortunately, on Jan 14, 2017, IFC announced that “Portlandia” will return in 2018 for its eighth and final season.

Unfortunately, IFC has decided to wrap up its surreal humour series after eight seasons. Though the cable network admits that “Portlandia” has become a cultural conversation-starter, portraying the great city of Portland as being inhabited by a variety of residents played by Armisen and Brownstein. The television series has been nominated for numerous awards, including a Peabody Award in 2012, a Writer’s Guild Award in 2013, four Creative Arts Emmy® Awards, and 17 Primetime Emmy® Award nominations. However, the series has achieved its logical conclusion and thus will end after a Season 8. All eight seasons will still be available via Netflix and iTunes.
Notification of the Release Date (Season 8)
“Portlandia” Season 7 was launched on Thursday, January 5, 2017 at 10:00 PM on IFC and its debut drew over 0.16 million viewers and was well received by the target audience. Despite the brilliant reception of all seven seasons, numerous awards, as well as pretty satisfactory television ratings (for a cable network) of the current season, IFC made a decision to abolish the series after its eighth season. According to the official announcement, “Portlandia” Season 8 is set to premiere in 2018. However, IFC has yet to specify the release date for a next season.
