It looks like Horace and Pete is closing out. TVLine reports that Louis CK’s web series will not have a second season.
The self-financed web series stars CK and Steve Buscemi as Horace and Pete, the owners of a 100-year-old Brooklyn bar. Edie Falco, Steven Wright, Alan Alda, and Jessica Lange also star.
In a recent email, CK announced that the most recent episode of the series would be the last. The tenth episode was released on April 2nd:
So. That was it. I didn’t want to say [before] that it was the last episode. Because I didn’t want you to know, as you watched the episode, that it would be the last one. But yeah, obviously, that was it.”
In January, the comedian released the first episode with no previous announcement. He’s gone on to say that the dramedy has put him millions of dollars in debt, but it was worth it in the long run:
It is a singular experience to have done this show and a very very sad thing to be done doing it. I loved telling that/those story(ies). I loved working in that (fake) bar with that crew for those 10 weeks. It was a wicked high privilege to act with those actors. I mean holy [s–t]. Those actors.”
All 10 episodes of Horace and Pete are available at Louisck.net.
What do you think? Have you seen Horace and Pete? Are you a fan of Louis CK? Do you think there should be more episodes of the experimental series?
