Comedy fans rejoice! Louie is back for its fifth season and FX has just released an extended clip from the show’s season premiere — my review of that episode is right here. Of course, the clip is awkward and hilarious, and, amazingly, not even the funniest moment in the episode. The clip highlights how the episode represents a shift from the fourth season, which carried with it heavier dramatic tones. FX has also released a teaser for next week’s episode, and based on this brief little teaser, it seems quite apparent that Louis C.K.‘s focus on comedy will run throughout the show’s fifth season.
Louie airs on FX Thursdays at 10:30pm.
