THR is reporting that Louis C.K.’s hit series, Louie which just ended its third season, will be on hiatus until spring 2014 instead of the previously scheduled premiere date of summer 2013. Citing exhaustion, FX president and GM John Landgraf told reporters that Louis C.K. had requested and received an 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.”
On a personal note, Louie is a very funny show, but I can’t get excited about waiting two years for a 13-episode season of a basic cable comedy. Thanks, but I probably won’t be coming back.
