And this does mean everyone. The cable network has announced the names of all of the guest stars set to appear on the show this season. They are, in alphabetical order: Roseanne Barr (“Roseanne”), Matt Berry (“The IT Crowd”), Rose Byrne (“Damages,” “Bridesmaids”), the Dirty Projectors (that’s a band), Jim Gaffigan (“Bored to Death” and “Flight of the Conchords”), Bill Hader (“Saturday Night Live”), Juliette Lewis (“Natural Born Killers”), Matt Lucas (“Little Britain”), J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., Bobby Moynihan (“Saturday Night Live”), Martina Navratilova (the tennis star), Patton Oswalt (“Young Adult”) and George Wendt (“Cheers”).
These stars will join a previously announced roster of actors, including Chloe Sevigny (“American Horror Story,” “Big Love”) as Fred and Carrie’s new roommate Alexandra, Jeff Goldblum and Kyle MacLachlan (returning to play the mayor of Portland).
While “Portlandia” will not officially return until Friday, Jan. 4 at 10pm, there will be a pre-premiere episode aired on Friday, Dec. 14 at 10:30pm. This is probably just because “Portlandia” is weird that way.
