Two episodes will air back-to-back on each Monday through June 16. If you’re wondering about the math — 13 half-hours were originally ordered by the network, meaning one would have to be broadcast on its own — creator and star Louis C.K. delivered a bonus 14th installment.

“Louis said he needed extra time between Seasons 3 and 4 of his show because – even though Louie was the most critically acclaimed television comedy series in America – he needed to make it even better,” said FX Networks CEO John Landgraf in a statement. “Based on the first three episodes we’ve seen, remarkably, he accomplished his goal.”
