A fifth season of Louis C.K.’s critically acclaimed comedy “Louie” will be heading to FX.

John Landgraf, chief executive of FX Networks and FX Productions, made the announcement Monday at the Television Critics Assn. media tour in Beverly Hills.

The fifth outing is scheduled to consist of seven episodes and set to roll out on the network in the spring of 2015.

“Louie’s fourth season was once again groundbreaking. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking -- always thought provoking,” Landgraf said in a statement. “The show went to narrative and cinematic places no comedy has gone before and we look forward to seeing what Louis comes up with next.”


“Louie” is up for five Emmy Awards this year, including outstanding comedy series and lead actor in a comedy for C.K.
