After a 19-month hiatus, FX’s Emmy-winning show “Louie” will return on May 5 for a fourth season.
The net will air two new back-to-back episodes every Monday for seven weeks. FX originally ordered 13 eps for the show’s grand return, but creator-star-writer-director-exec producer Louis C.K. surprised with a bonus 14th episode.
“Louis said he needed extra time between seasons three and four of his show because – even though Louie was the most critically acclaimed television comedy series in America – he needed to make it even better,” Landgraf said in a statement. “Based on the first three episodes we’ve seen, remarkably, he accomplished his goal.”
