The fourth season of IFC's Fred Armisen- and Carrie Brownstein-fronted 'Portlandia' won't officially premiere until February 27 (don't worry, season 5 is already confirmed), but you needn't wait that long for a fresh dose of weird.

The sweeping changes to the late night landscape have only recently begun, with Jay Leno having said his goodbyes to 'The Tonight Show,' with Jimmy Fallon soon to take his place. Seth Meyers too, has left behind 'SNL' for his impending 'Late Night' gig, which we've now learned to feature fellow alumni Fred Armisen leading the band!
It's been some time since we've heard from the weird world of IFC's 'Portlandia,' but with two more seasons guaranteed, Fred and Carrie are due to make a triumphant return with an official February 2014 premiere date. In addition, season 4 with feature an impressive roster of guest stars from former 'SNL' alum, to iconic music stars, returning guests and Hollywood A-listers.
By the end of this year's 'SNL' season finale (which was hosted by 'Argo' director Ben Affleck), it was obvious that series veteran Bill Hader would be depart the series. But while it's still unknown if fellow veteran Jason Sudeikis will also be saying goodbye, it's now clear that Fred Armisen's final tribute performance was meant to confirm the 'Portlandia' star's 'SNL' exit.
'SNL' vet Fred Armisen may have left the long-running, late-night comedy for good this past season, but he won't be hurting for work any time soon. IFC has granted an additional two seasons to its critically adored sketch comedy series, 'Portlandia,' to air in 2014 and 2015 respectively, but will the series come to a conclusion thereafter?
As we eagerly await the third season of IFC's quirky sketch comedy series 'Portlandia' -- or for that matter any of our favorite shows before their return -- one universal rule of TV should always be observed: no spoilers!

So what spoilers are teased in the latest clip from season 3? Find out inside, along with what Rosanne Barr will get up to in her visit! Spoilers a-plenty!
As nice as it was to have Fred and Carrie back for a brief 'Portlandia' winter special, 2013 will see the eternally weird duo back full time for 'Portlandia' season 3. The third year of IFC's quirky sketch comedy will feature an impressive number of guest stars, including the likes of Chloe Sevigny, Patton Oswalt, and several past 'SNL' stars, but why wait until the January 4 premiere date to check it out? Take a look at the first clip from 'Portlandia's third season, featuring 'SNL' star Bobby Moynihan (Drunk Uncle!) paying a visit to everyone's favorite feminist bookstore!
Portland might be known for its weirdness, '90s-era quirk, and even entire professions devoted to putting birds on things, but with all the celebrities floating through, you'd think it'd be the next Hollywood. Regardless, IFC's 'Portlandia' has managed to obtain some impressive star power in its third season, including everyone from Fred Armisen's 'SNL' castmates, to comic everyman actor Patton Oswalt! Who else is on 'Portlandia' season 3's epic list of names, and when might we see them?
Sure, our lives have all been pretty weird of late, considering the storms that flood the tri-state area one week and drench them in snow the next. Disney announces both its purchase of 'Star Wars' and a revival of 'Boy Meets World,' amid other elements that while weird, just aren't Portland weird. Thankfully, Portland weird will be back in our lives sooner than we thought, as IFC's 'Portlandia' has officially set its return, along with an advance winter special!
Certainly none of the '30 Rock' cast will be hurting for work when the show closes up shop after 7 seasons this fall, but it's an awful lot of talent to pour out on the streets. We know that Tina Fey will next take her talents to lend a voice on 'The Simpsons,' but what of Alec Baldwin? Will he simply return to movies, or continue on the small screen? Might there be a place for him in 'Portlandia' when '30 Rock' is said and done?
