Last summer, it was announced that Louie, Louis C.K.’s FX series, would be on an extended hiatus due to scheduling conflicts. FX Networks and FX Productions CEO John Landgraf shared it could be six months to two years before Louie would make a return, and expressed that it would be up to the comedian when it’s time to make a comeback.
The panel at the Television Critics Association press tour last night offered some updates on where the series is at now. “We still talk about making more seasons,” Landgraf said (also noting Louie may never return to the small screen).
When C.K. was asked if Louie would return, he said: “I don’t know. I just don’t know. I don’t know. I think about it sometimes and I just don’t know. It’s such an autobiographical thing that I could do a version of ‘Louie’ when he’s 60, if anyone gives a sh-t… By the time I want to, I might say, ‘Hey guys,’ and they’ll be like, ‘Who is this?’”
C.K. was attending the panel for Baskets, a new FX series he co-created with Zach Galifianakis about a wannabe clown (played by Galifianakis). The show premieres on January 21.
