Following a somewhat successful 'SNL' return, Louis C.K. will return to TV this coming May for the long-awaited fourth season of FX's Emmy-winner 'Louie.' Most of the early spots have cryptically avoided the award-winning comedian's face, but 'Louie' himself is at last front and center in the newest promo for the May 5 premiere, despite a dire end teased.
Set to the tune of Doris Day's "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps," the latest look at 'Louie' season 4 arrives with tonight's 'Fargo' premiere, and shows the prolific comedian swan-diving off the Brooklyn bridge with a flower in his mouth, apparently making it through the plunge to the water below. Surreal as 'Louie' episodes have prove, we have to wonder if any upcoming episodes of the season could see Louis C.K. in so dire a state.
Despite the 19 months in between ‘Louie’ seasons 3 and 4, Louis' appearance on the new season of ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' saw the comedian envisioning ‘Louie’ lasting “seven or eight years, tops," while some of the scripts for season 4 have been written in collaboration with fellow comedian (and prior guest star) Steven Wright. The new season will also run for 14 episodes, delivering two new episodes each week for seven weeks straight.
