Louis C.K. is no stranger to dark material — in his FX show Louie, his character has found himself fearing for Parker Posey’s life as she discussed jumping off a building and trying to talk an old comedian friend out of committing suicide. But in the latest teaser for the show’s upcoming fourth season, Louie’s the one flirting with death.

After a 19-month hiatus, Louie is returning May 5 at 10 p.m. ET with special back-to-back half-hour episodes.
