Louie Season 4 Delayed to 2014

Jon Lachonis October 9, 2012 1

Fans of FX’s Louie will have to wait a little longer than expected for season 4.  Louie C.K. himself has requested the series be put on hold until spring of 2014.  Yes, I said 2014.  Louie made the announcement during a conference call earlier today.

“The last three seasons have been this surge of fun and work and stories and it’s been great, but I want the show to keep getting better. That’s my goal, and I don’t want it to be making the donuts, I want it to be something that comes from somewhere important and stays funny. It’s a luxury I asked for … season four is my job right now, but I’m going to take a whole lot of time to turn it in. I want season four to go somewhere new, even if it’s only a slight shift.”

Louie explained further that he thinks of the series as trilogies with every three seasons completing a chapter.  Pressed further, Louie added that he could see the series stretch on for another six seasons before wrapping up totally.

    That’s a bummer, but if it will improve the quality of the show I’m for it. My coworkers at DISH got me watching last season and I’ve been hooked. I’ve been recording every episode I can to my Hopper, and with 2000 hours of recording space; I have plenty of space. I love Louie C.K.’s sense of humor and can’t wait for his show to return with new episodes.
