Portlandia fans are just halfway through season five -- how do seasons six and seven sound?

IFC announced on Feb. 10 that the Portland bougie-Northwestern-neo-hippie sketch comedy show has been renewed for another two ten-episode seasons. Yes, that's right -- the show that once seemed genius yet hopelessly niche and left field will likely be with us through 2017.

Leads Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, along with director Jonathan Krisel, will be on board through seasons six and seven.

"We are so excited to get to do more Portlandia with IFC," Armisen and Brownstein said via a joint statement from IFC. "Getting to work with Jon and our talented writers and crew, it really is our favorite thing in the world. Also, we get to spend more time in Portland!"

"Portland may be a place where young people go to retire, but IFC is not retiring Portlandia," IFC president Jennifer Caserta said. "And if you order a book from Toni and Candace at the Feminist Bookstore right now, it might even arrive by the time season seven rolls around."

New episodes of season five are currently airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. (ET) on IFC.
