Louis C.K. Ready to Give “Louie” a Rest?

“I think the guy that I played on the show — the just-divorced kinda underwater dad, struggling New York comic — I don’t think I have stories for that guy anymore,” C.K. told The Hollywood Reporter‘s “Awards Chatter” podcast.

The comedian added that he’s unsure whether he wants to continue with the Emmy Award-winning series. “I think, for me, if I’m on TV again doing a single-camera show, it’s Louie. But I don’t know,” he said. “I have no idea. I needed to not know if I’d ever do it again — I needed to feel that way — so that’s the way I feel right now.”

The most recent season of Louie, season five, aired last spring.  C.K. ended his online series Horace and Pete April 2, after ten episodes.
