‘Louie’ Season 4 to Premiere in 2014

“Louie” will return in the Spring of 2014. Louis C.K., Emmy winner, writer, producer, director, editor and actor of “Louie” said the comedy series will be taking a hiatus.

Louis requested the break between the third and fourth seasons to ensure the show’s quality continues to live up to its standards, he said in a conference call Tuesday.

“The last three seasons have been this surge of fun and work and stories and it’s been great, but I want the show to keep getting better,” Louis C.K. said in a conference call. “That’s my goal, and I don’t want it to be making the donuts, I want it to be something that comes from somewhere important and stays funny. It’s a luxury I asked for … Season 4 is my job right now, but I’m going to take a whole lot of time to turn it in.”

Louie also stated, that he thinks in trilogies and that the first three seasons completed one such trilogy. And so he wanted to take some time to set up the next trilogy.

“I want season four to go somewhere new, even if it’s only a slight shift.”

“My goal from the very beginning is not to force Louis to adapt his skills to a specific structure of story,” FX President John Landgraf said. “Why does it have to be one thing? Why can’t it be anything Louis wants it to be? Louis will do whatever he wants to do, and we’ll try to figure out from a channel standpoint how to support that.”
