Renewed: Portlandia confirms final season

US sketch comedy Portlandia has confirmed rumours of an eighth and final season, due in 2018.

The series that stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein was confirmed as ending during the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

Armisen commented, “For us, it seemed like a way to figure out a way to have a beginning, a middle and an ending.”

Brownstein added, “In some ways, just trying to create a container for something that has edges, in terms of intentions…I think in terms of the creation of art, it’s nice to put parameters around it. I think it helps to keep it pointed.

“I think nothing ever really ends anyway.”

The series has screened in Australia on ABC.
