In celebration of April Fools everywhere and in preparation for next Thursday’s Season 5 premiere, FX has made every episode of “Louie” Season 4 available to stream on its FXNOW app. The ambitious 14-episode season will be available for viewing through Thursday, April 9.
As fans and critics of Louis C.K.’s half-hour comedy already know, Season 4 was one of the television auteur’s most daring installments yet, featuring multi-episode story arcs for the first time in the show’s history. While standalone episodes such as the dream-gone-awry “Model” and the Emmy-winning “So Did the Fat Lady” proved the comedian’s knack for constructing episode-long punchlines, it was prolonged narratives such as the “Pamela” and “Elevator” arcs that really pushed C.K.’s storytelling abilities and the show itself into new and exciting territories. The season also gave us the two-part knockout “In the Woods,” which painfully flashed back to Louie’s childhood and featured memorable guest star Jeremy Renner.
The acclaimed fourth season of “Louie” is also available to stream on Netflix and Hulu. Catch up now before the Season 5 premiere next Thursday, April 9 at 10:30pm on FX.
