As the TV dry season that is summertime approaches, many great shows are wrapping up their current seasons in May. Here’s a rundown of all the television season finales in the next month that you won’t want to miss.
This sketch comedy skewering Portland’s hipster culture will wrap up its fourth season on IFC on Thursday, May 1. The series was co-created by and stars SNL veteran Fred Armisen and punk musician Carrie Brownstein playing a variety of kooky characters inspired by Portland — including a pair of feminist book store owners, an overly attached married couple, and owners of an art boutique in which they put pictures of birds on things. The show has lasted longer and remained more consistently funny than anyone expected from a sketch comedy focused on such a niche topic. It has been aided by a group of eclectic guest stars — many of them musicians — which this season has included Josh Homme, Annie Clark, Jeff Tweedy, Steve Buscemi, and Jeff Goldblum. The season finale promises appearances from k.d. lang and Jason Sudeikis.
