FX plans to bring their Louie back for a sixth season but it doesn’t sound like the TV series will be returning anytime soon.
At the Television Critics Association press tour, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf told reporters that Louie creator/star Louis C.K. will be taking an “extended hiatus” from producing the series while he focuses on other projects. They include new series Better Things and Baskets, plus a third that will be announced soon.
Langraf indicated that C.K. could take a six month or even two year haitus and noted, “It’s going to be his choice. He has made 61 incredible episodes of television.”
The CEO likened this relationship to the one that HBO has with Larry David and his Curb Your Enthusiasm series. When C.K. wants to return to make more episodes of Louie, FX will air them.
What do you think? Do you like the Louie TV show? Are you hoping that a sixth season is eventually made?
