After winning two Emmys and grossing millions from his stand-up special and forthcoming tour, Louis C.K. announced that he's taking a sabbatical from his show on F/X. “I want the show to keep getting better. That’s my goal, and I don’t want it to be making the doughnuts," the comedian told the Times. "I want it to keep being something that comes from somewhere fun and important, and I want it to stay funny. It’s a luxury that I asked for, which is more time to create Season 4.” How much more time? Louie's fourth season is expected to air in the spring of 2014. By then the Criterion Collection will be selling Pootie Tang.

Louis C.K. writes, acts, and (sometimes) edits his show, so the break seems well-earned. "The last three seasons have been this surge of fun and work and stories, and it’s been great to share all this stuff, and I want to keep going,” he said. When asked if he'll keep including long story arcs in season four, he replied, "Maybe there’ll be a six-episode story, or maybe there won’t be. I still have to noodle it all out, but there is potential for that.” Or maybe the entire season will be shot ON A YACHT.
