Louis C.K. has cancelled Louie, at least for the foreseeable future.
“I think the guy that I played on the show — the just-divorced, kinda under-water dad/struggling New York comic — I don’t think I have stories for that guy anymore”
However, referencing the ‘time capsule’ renewal FX handed the series last year, C.K. allowed for the possibility that Season 6 may yet happen one day:
“The show is autobiographical, so what [FX president and general manager] John Landgraf and I have always thought is that it may come back with a different set of stories from a different angle, a little further down the road. And I don’t know where that’s from yet, so it just depends on if it writes. I think, for me, if I’m on TV again doing a single-camera show, it’s Louie. But I don’t know. I have no idea.”
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the graveyard for signs of Louie Season 6…
