FX Picks Up Louie for a Fifth Season


FX has officially renewed “Louie” for a fifth season! The next season will feature seven episodes and will premiere in Spring 2015. The show comes from Creator/Executive Producer/Writer/Star/Director/Editor Louis C.K.

“Louie” is a comedy filtered through the observational humor of Louis C.K.. Each episode puts a spotlight on Louis’ hectic life as a successful stand-up comedian and newly single father raising his two daughters. The single-camera comedy is a mix of Louis C.K.’s stand-up comedy and scripted stories. Louis C.K., M. Blair Breard and Dave Becky are Executive Producers. The series is produced by FX Productions.

FX Networks & FX Productions CEO, John Landgraf, said,

“Louie’s fourth season was once again groundbreaking. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking – always thought provoking,” said Landgraf. “The show went to narrative and cinematic places no comedy has gone before and we look forward to seeing what Louis comes up with next.”
