Louie may have seen its last day already. Series creator and star Louis CK says he’s unsure if the FX comedy will continue, TV Guide reports.
Louie, which features CK as a semi-fictionalized version of himself, went on an extended hiatus after its fifth season ended last year.
In a recent interview, CK said he doesn’t think he has any more stories for the character of Louie:
I think the guy that I played on the show — the just-divorced, kinda under-water dad/struggling New York comic — I don’t think I have stories for that guy anymore.”
He added that the series could always come back years later, but he isn’t sure yet:
The show is autobiographical, so what [FX president and general manager] John Landgraf and I have always thought is that it may come back with a different set of stories from a different angle, a little further down the road. And I don’t know where that’s from yet, so it just depends on if it writes. I think, for me, if I’m on TV again doing a single-camera show, it’s Louie. But I don’t know. I have no idea.”
CK recently created and starred in his own independent web series, Horace and Pete, starring Steve Buscemi, Alan Alda, and Jessica Lange.
