FX Renews LOUIE for Season 4

     July 28, 2012


FX Networks has renewed Louis C.K.’s impossibly great comedy series Louie for a fourth season, per TV Line.  The show is currently in the middle of a fantastic third season run, and it’s a minor miracle that the offbeat series has lasted this long.  C.K. basically films whatever he wants, and FX thankfully decides to air what he turns in (which is gold).  He acts as showrunner, writer, director, and star of the series, and he also edited every episode for seasons one and two before bringing in Woody Allen’s longtime editor Susan E. Morse for season three.

For a gauge as to just how “offbeat” Louie can get, look no further than the latest episode of season three.  The installment featured C.K. and guest star Parker Posey on a date that at one point found C.K. wearing a dress.  The episode was at once hilarious, heartbreaking, sweet, and insightful as it followed the two wandering aimlessly around New York City at night.  This season four renewal is great news indeed, and if you haven’t checked out Louie yet I highly recommend you do so.

    He’s going to go down as one of the best and most important comedians of our time. Not only for his stand up comedy and TV shows (Lucky Louie & Louie) but for the way he’s revolutionizing DIY self promotion for comedians and entertainers. Selling his DVD’s/CD’s and event tickets directly through his own website for cheap instead of going through a third party distributor is quickly becoming the new business model.

    So Happy because it’s the best comedy on Tv

  • Scurvy

    You have to give it a few episodes to let it grow on you and get accustomed to the humor.

    I caught a few episodes last season after Wilfred and I decided to start recording it. It’s depressingly hilarious most of the time but I’m glad to see them turn in a few more positive shows this season (the Miami and the most recent episode mainly).

    The man throws up basically what everyone thinks(or at least I do) on screen. Love it. It’s just raw entertaining material.
