Two of the year's most critically acclaimed TV shows won't be disappearing from our TV screens anytime soon, as FX has renewed Louie for a fifth season, and Fargo for a sophomore season. Louie has become one of the most critically acclaimed comedies on TV, both for its unusual take on comedy and how beautifully made it is. Audiences relate to the everyman charm of Louis C.K., who serves as lead actor, director, writer, producer (and earlier on in the show's history, editor) for every single episode. The show was put on hiatus for 19 months in 2012 to give C.K. an opportunity to recharge and come up with new, fresh ideas. The fourth season became the show's most dramatic, but also kept the original unanimous critical acclaim - and showing appreciation for his fans' patience, he made an extra episode just to thank them. The fifth season will begin airing next Spring, just like the fourth season, which premiered in May this year. However, there will only be seven episodes at this point, as opposed to the thirteen/fourteen in a regular season. Just when True Detective was looking at being the crime anthology show of the year, Fargo arrived. Its quirky humor and suspenseful plot made it an instant sensation, and managed to receive several Emmy Award nominations (and hopefully wins next month). The show will be back next Fall, signalling over a year we have to wait for the new season, which will tell a completely different story and contain new stars. Creator Noah Hawley has claimed he might consider borrowing more from the Coen Brothers (who directed the film of which Fargo is inspired). If this riveting season has anything to say about what Hawley is capable of, then the wait will surely we worth it. We can't wait for these two great shows to return, but in the meantime, FX has many other exciting projects, including the currently-airing The Strain and American Horror Story: Freak Show, which will arrive in October.
