Louis C.K.’s FX Series ‘Louie’ to Go on Hiatus for 2013

So there’s good news and bad news for fans of the Emmy-winning comedy Louie, which comedian Louis C.K. not only writes but stars in.  The good news?  There will be a season 4.  The bad news?  It won’t begin airing until spring 2014 at the earliest.  Louis C.K. revealed this news to reporters several days after the third season finale aired and while he is on a lengthy national standup tour.

Louis C.K. explained that he is taking the break primarily to recharge his creative batteries.  He says, “The last three seasons have been this surge of fun and work and stories, and it’s been great to share all this stuff, and I want to keep going.  I want the show to keep getting better. That’s my goal, and I don’t want it to be making the doughnuts. I want it to keep being something that comes from somewhere fun and important, and I want it to stay funny. It’s a luxury that I asked for, which is more time to create Season 4.”  FX, the channel that airs Louie, had no issue with granting Louis C.K. a break from producing the series.

The third season of Louie won acclaim for its multi-episode story arcs — particularly a lengthy storyline in which the title character auditions to replace David Letterman as host of The Late Show — but Louis C.K. admitted that he isn’t sure if he’ll continue in that direction.  He said, “Who knows? Maybe there’ll be a six-episode story, or maybe there won’t be. I still have to noodle it all out, but there is potential for that.”
