'Portlandia' Season 5 Trailer Is Hilariously Epic And Intense

"Interstellar Part 2" or "Portlandia"? The new trailer for Season 5 of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's comedy show is of seriously epic proportions. Set to some intense Hans Zimmer-esque music, the trailer shows the chaos that is slowly unravelling in the quaint city of Portland. There's a taxidermy shop that gets vandalized, Olivia Wilde returns to help free the whales at Sea World and Paul Reubens acts like a "weirdo." There's also raw milk advocates, a scared Vanessa Bayer, machine guns and Brownstein dangling from a building.

Season 5 of "Portlandia" will also feature a handful of celebrity cameos, including Natasha Lyonne, Anna Gunn, Greta Gerwig, Seth Meyers, Parker Posey, Justin Long, Shepard Fairey and more. When the series returns on Jan. 8, we'll also get a flashback to the beginnings of the Feminist Bookstore and how Toni and Candace became friends. The only bad news? Having to wait for Season 5 makes us feel like Brownstein's Claire at the end of "Battlestar Galactica."
