65th Annual Writers Guild East Coast Awards  - InsideApril will shower us with great television.

FX announced that "Louie" will return for its fifth season on Thursday, April 9 - joining shows like "Game of Thrones," "Mad Men," and "Orphan Black" in premiering that month.

Creator and star Louis C.K. told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour that season 5 will be "more laugh-centric funny than season four," which struck many viewers as dark.

"I had a very playful and goofy feeing going into this season," he said.

Not only that, FX has plans to spin off Pamela Adlon into her own comedy, titled "Better Things." The actress has collaborated and written with C.K. for years. Her pilot will mirror "Louie," in that she plays a version of herself - a working actress raising three kids. Adlon and C.K. will co-write the pilot, and C.K. will direct.
