Louie goes on hiatus. Buys a yacht. Quietly returns to television.

While Louis C.K. will be appearing at the Paley Center this Thursday (tickets on sale at noon today!), we had no idea he was already filming the next season of Louie, set to return in 2014 after a way too long hiatus. Just the news we needed after the forever end of Breaking Bad.

Bowery Boogie, who notes the hiatus was announced almost exactly a year ago, spotted these signs for Louis' production company (Pig Newton) on the Lower East Side. Looks like C.K. & Co. will be filming tomorrow on both Bowery and Norfolk.

The show won't return to the air until May, so we've got another eight months before we see him climb out of the subway and get a slice of pizza again.
