After 19-months off the air, the Emmy winning comedy series Louie will be returning to FX this May. Unlike conventional shows, series creator, star and writer Louis C.K. has gone about producing his hit show in a strange way, as it’s been almost two years since we last saw an episode, yet the May premiere of the fourth season is already highly anticipated.
According to Deadline, Louie will be returning to FX on May 5th with two new episodes to kick off the latest season.
After a 19-month hiatus, television’s most-critically acclaimed comedy series Louie will make its season four debut on Monday, May 5 at 10:00 PM E/P, and FX will air two all new episodes of the Emmy Award winning show back-to-back every Monday at 10:00 and 10:30 PM E/P for seven consecutive weeks through June 16, announced John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions.
This is great news for fans of the series who have been wondering just where the heck it has been all this time. In the meantime, Louis C.K. has released a new HBO comedy special, gone on a tour and starred in two Academy Award nominated films – Blue Jasmine and American Hustle.
But his following is fierce and loyal, which is why after nearly two years off the air, the return of Louie on FX won’t be miss by many.
