Louie Returns in May

Mar 13, 2014

The fourth season of Louis C.K.'s Louie will premiere on May 5 at 10:00 p.m. EST, FX announced today. The show has been off the air for 19 months, so to make it up to fans, the network will air two back-to-back each week. There are 14 episodes total in the new season.

"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," said John Landgraf, the FX chief executive, in a statement. "Based on the first three episodes we’ve seen, remarkably, he accomplished his goal."
