Announced at their summer TCA, FX has renewed Louis CK’s Louie for its fifth season. This really comes as no surprise as Louie has been a huge fan favorite and critically acclaimed series since its debut, and has racked up plenty of award nominations including two Emmy wins. It’s fourth season alone racked up five Emmy noms this year.
“Louie’s fourth season was once again groundbreaking. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking — always thought provoking,” said John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks & FX Productions. “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.”
According to Variety, Louie will return with a seven-episode season in spring 2015.
