FX has pushed back the fourth season premiere of its comedy critical darling “Louie” from Summer 2013 to Spring 2014. FX president John Landgraf tells The Live Feed that star Louis C.K. requested and received the extended hiatus.
“Louie has continued to raise the bar and recharge his batteries. I don’t think there’s anyone else in business who’s produced, starred, directed and edited all but seven episodes … I’m not surprised he needs a bit of a break” says Landgraf.
“I want season four to go somewhere new … I’m looking back to when I did the first season and the time I took to do the show and decide which directions to go in and I want that back again. I want a little breathing room” Louis C.K. told the media.
