Is Louis C.K. aban­don­ing Louie?

Ottawa Sun - - SHOWBIZ - — The As­so­ci­ated Press

Louis C.K. says if he re­sumes his FX com­edy se­ries it won’t be the same be­cause he’s changed.

The co­me­dian told a TV crit­ics’ meet­ing this week that he’s no longer the guy with the “stained black T-shirt” he por­trayed on Louie, who was grap­pling with life and his ca­reer.

FX Net­works CEO John Land­graf said that the show likely would re­flect C.K.’s suc­cess, which in­cludes pro­duc­ing the FX se­ries Bas­kets and Bet­ter Things.

But Land­graf re­frained from pre­dict­ing the fate of Louie. He said it’s pos­si­ble there will never be an­other sea­son or, con­versely, mul­ti­ple sea­sons over 30 years.

The last sea­son of Louie, its fifth, aired in 2015.
