As PORTLANDIA heads into its third season with stars and co-creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, co-creator and director Jonathan Krisel told the press at the Winter TCA 2013 that Portland, Oregon now embraces the series when they were initially skeptical during the first season of the IFC series.
“When we were doing the first season, people were very skeptical of the TV show,” says Krisel. “They were sort of mad that someone was coming into their town. Now, when we go out in the third season, people are very supportive. I think the humor of the show and sort of absurdity with off the beaten path of the show, they’re like, ‘that’s us.’ They feel like it represents Portland really well, not just in terms of capturing what it is to be there, but not going for the mainstream.”
