‘Louie’ Renewed for Second Season on FX

Louie renewed for a second season on FX FX has ordered another season of its newest critically acclaimed comedy series Louie, starring actor/comedian Louis C.K., picking up a 13-episode second season, today announced John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks.

"Louie has made a truly original series - a comedy unlike anything on television, but perfect for his unique voice," said Landgraf. "We are very happy with the show's performance and critical acclaim, and are delighted to move forward with a second season. With the pick up of Louie, FX has renewed all three new original comedies that the channel debuted over the last year."

Louis C.K. serves as executive producer, writer and director, and Dave Becky and 3 Arts Entertainment are executive producers. FX has ordered 13 episodes of the series which is produced by FX Productions.

Through six episodes, on a first-run basis Louie is averaging 1 million total viewers and 727,000 Adults 18-49 (most current).
