Louie: FX Comedy Renewed for Season Three

Louie season threeYou may recall a few years ago that Louis C.K. and his Lucky Louie series was cancelled after just 13 episodes on HBO. Well the comedian is having much better luck on basic cable. His FX comedy, titled simply Louie, has just been renewed for a third season.

The news was announced today at the FX portion of the TCA press tour but comes as no surprise. The second season is doing significantly better than the first year. To date, it’s averaging a 0.6 rating in the prized 18-49 demographic and 1.1 million viewers.

C.K., the creator and star of Louie, tweeted the news and wrote, “Season 3 of LOUIE is official. We will be back. I am very grateful to keep the best job on earth for another year.”

There’s no word yet on how many episodes have been ordered but the previous seasons have had 13 installments each and have aired during the summer months. Season two is expected to finish in early September.

What do you think? Are you glad that Louie has been renewed?

    I really like this show. I look forward to it weekly.
    I would like to know the name of the actress who played Eunice in the season 2 finale. The credit list her as being Jenn Lyon. I googled her name and this person died on January 2010. What gives???? I think that someone made a mistake. I spent over two hours researchig her and got nowhere!!
    Can someone help? BTW, I think that she is really sexy!!!

    I’m really happy that Louis C.K. is getting the recognition he richly deserves.

    He’s not just a talented director and editor… he writes with the kind of raw honesty worthy of Bukowski.

    His exploration of themes through his film edits are moving, astonishing and they echo long after the credits fade.

    Thank you Louis for staying in there.
