IFC’s silly sketch show Portlandia is sadly coming to an end.

According to EW, IFC has announced that the show,  starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, has been renewed for an an eighth season–which will unfortunately be the show’s last.

Portlandia is a goofy show, set in Portland, Oregon, that has had a plethora of excellent sketches (about hipsters, birds and more) and guest appearances over the years.

There are very few shows that can be credited with both establishing and helping to define a television network, and that’s exactly what Portlandiahas done for IFC,” IFC president Jennifer Caserta recently said in a statement. “It has been at the heart of our ‘slightly-off’ comedy programming strategy since its inception. It is a joy and a privilege to work with Fred, Carrie, Jon, [executive producer] Lorne Michaels, and everyone at Broadway Video to create a show that was prescient in its satirization of modern culture while having a sensibility and state of mind that has only become more prevalent across its run.

Portlandia Season 7 is currently running, while Season 8 is expected to premiere sometime in 2018.
