New ‘Portlandia’ Season 6 Trailer Brings Your Fred-and-Carrie Fan Fiction to Life


In the Portlandia universe, creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are just friends, but in a new trailer for the show’s sixth season, the pair finally push their twin beds together and have sex.

Years of Portlandia fan-fiction has been leading up to this moment, and it does not disappoint. There’s a handshake, an astronaut suit and a New Yorker reference.

“I picture [us] eyes closed, hands out to the sides,” Brownstein suggested.

It’s just like you wrote about in your diary, right?

According to Indiewire, the series return to its traditional sketch comedy format in season six, eschewing the more serialized episode structure employed last season.

The sixth season of Portlandia kicks off January 21 on IFC.
