It's been awhile since we've heard any thing on the front of Louis C.K. FX darling 'Louie,' which lest we forget, promises to return in 2014 after a lengthy hiatus from the third season. The long break in between seasons occurred to provide the acclaimed comedian with honest and fresh material, but how long does C.K. see the Emmy-winning dramedy lasting on FX?

FX has yet to schedule an official return for the fourth season of 'Louie,' most likely placing the target date in May 2014, though the comedian isn't altogether worried about the show closing up shop any time soon. In conversation with fellow comedy icon Jerry Seinfeld during the latter's new season of 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,' C.K. professed that he could envision 'Louie' lasting “seven or eight years, tops.”

Of course, the hiatus between seasons 3 and 4 could well imply that future seasons might well have equally sporadic spacing, though the comedian has always thrived in deriving comedy from his increasing age. If nothing else, C.K. also offered that some of the scripts for season 4 have been written in collaboration with fellow comedian (and prior guest star) Steven Wright.

Hopefully the coming fourth run of episodes will provide some insight into future 'Louie' seasons on FX, but what do you think? Would you want to see Louis C.K.'s comedic darling last up to eight years?
