"Portlandia" addicts don't have to wait until 2013 to get their next fix of the sketch-comedy series.

Though the show's Season 3 premiere isn't scheduled to debut until Friday, January 4 at 10 PM ET - a date announced earlier today by the cable network - a special pre-season holiday episode is slated to air three weeks prior, on Friday, December 14 at 10:30.

As if that weren't enough, you can practice your Dharana with a brand-new clip from the upcoming season - featuring, naturally, series leads Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein - below. Namaste.
