NEW YORK (AP) - FX network says it's delaying the return of its hit comedy "Louie" until spring 2014.
The network said Tuesday it had granted the request by the series' Emmy-winning star, Louis C.K., for what he called "a little breathing room." Along with performing in the show, he serves as producer, writer and editor, and also created it.
"Louie" recently concluded its third season. Until the extended hiatus was announced, its return for a fourth season was expected next summer.
During a teleconference, Louis C.K. said he gets "irritated" when he's not working but that he sought a break from the show "to feel hungry" again.
But he won't be idle in the meantime. This fall, he's continuing a live standup tour.
