After a long break, the fourth season of the critically acclaimed show around comedian Lois C.K. will return this spring. FX will begin airing back-to-back episodes, 14 in total, on May 5 to make up for the 19-month hiatus

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.”
