You 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.
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?
