FX Renews ‘Louie,’ Orders More Russell Brand, & Martin Sheen to Join ‘Anger Management’

Emmy nominated Best Writing comedy series, “Louie” has been renewed for a fourth season.

FX’s entertainment president, John Landgraf announced the news earlier today at the Television Critics Association in Beverly Hills. Last Thursday, the comedy series was nominated for three Emmys: best writing, best director and lead actor in a comedy series, Landgraf said at TCA,  “we were obviously disappointed when show was not nominated for best comedy series.”

The series was renewed for a fourth season of 13 episodes.

The 64th Primetime Emmy Nominees Are….

FX’s press tour highlights…

Russell Brand’s “Brand X’ received an order of seven more episodes that will air this fall, but the show will undergo some creative changes.

Although “Wilfred” has not been renewed, Landgraf told critics he expects the comedy to be around for “many years.”

Landgraf also expects “Justified” to remain on the network for “at least six seasons.”

Martin Sheen is set to appear on “Anger Management’ season finale as Charlie Goodson’s dad. The actor will be bumped up to a series regular if the series gets an order of 90 episodes. However, the decision won’t be made until the first season has been aired. But the renewal seems “very likely.”

Landgraf informed reporters at the TCA press tour, “What the entry of Martin Sheen’s character will do is it will give an extra dimension to the show and make it a multi-generational family show. The show will still deal with his relationship with his patients and the women in his life, but will also [expand to focus on his family].”
