Following a lengthy, self-imposed hiatus Louis CK is returning to FX.
The network announced today that Season 4 of the unusual comedy Louie will premiere on Monday, May 5 with back-to-back episodes.
In fact, the series will air a set of back-to-back episodes for seven weeks through June 16.
Said John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions in a statement:
“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. Based on the first three episodes we’ve seen, remarkably, he accomplished his goal.”
FX had originally given the green light for 13 Louie Season 4 episodes, but to make this back-to-back arrangement work, the comedian agreed to a bonus installment.
Watch Louie online now to catch up and let the countdown to the return of this terrific series begin.
