FX has not only announced a return date for Louie, but given us date that is only a couple months away. On May 5th, the fourth season of Louie will premiere. Exciting, no?

It also appears that FX is going in the opposite direction of that "break the season up into two seasons to really milk it" routine that AMC has been so fond of with Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and The Walking Dead. Rather, they're giving us two thirty-minute episodes a week for seven weeks. If you ran to your calculator like I did after that last sentence, you'll see we're in for 14 new episodes.

What are we in for? No idea. But it will probably be really weird, intense, and not quite as funny ha-ha as we would expect from a stand-up comedian. And it will probably be really, really good.
