The Portlandia Season 2 Blu-ray cover is hot off the presses! The second season will be released September 25 on both DVD and Blu-ray with more bonus features than a bike mover can transport in a day, including IFC’s upcoming special “Brunch Village: Director’s Cut.” Stay tuned for more details, but here’s what we know now: The second season of Portlandia, Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s endearingly quirky sketch comedy show, is finally coming out on DVD/Blu Ray!

In the second season, some of Portlandia’s most loved and notable characters from season one return. You know, the people who brought you memorable catchphrases such as “Put a Bird On It” and “Cacao”! They are back, along with Portland’s trusty openly reggae bass playing Mayor (Kyle MacLachlan, Desperate Housewives, Twin Peaks); Peter and Nance, Spyke, the militant bike messenger, Bryce Shivers and Lisa Eversman, who aren’t putting birds on things anymore, and, of course, Toni and Candace, the shopkeepers of the feminist bookstore, “Women and Women First.”

Many new residents moved into Portlandia for the show’s season two, including the “Sanitation Twins,” some serious Battlestar Galactica fans, and Kevin the Cat. Plus a whole new crop of guest stars graced Portlandia with their presence, including Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig, Joanna Newsom, Annie Clark a.k.a. St. Vincent, Miranda July, Isaac Brock from Modest Mouse, Tim Robbins, and many more.

Fans who pick up the Blu Ray/DVD of Portlandia’s second season will also get a bunch of extras. The DVD and Blu Ray come with commentary with Fred, Carrie and director Jonathan Krisel over 4 episodes. You’ll also get behind-the-scenes footage and highlights from Portlandia: The Tour and a peek at the making of the show as well as deleted scenes. Also on the Blu Ray/DVD are two specials, both “The Brunch Village: Director’s Cut” and an “Introduction to Portlandia.”

Portlandia returns to IFC for a third season in January 2013 with a special airing this summer and another during the holidays

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
