According to star/creator Louis C.K., the series is headed toward a lighter tone after the heaviness of Season 4. “This season is more laugh-centric funny than season four,” he said. “I had a very playful and goofy feeing going into this season.”

Also debuting in April are Game of Thrones Season 5, Veep Season 4, and Silicon Valley Season 2 on HBO; Mad Men Season 7 Part 2 on AMC; Orphan Black Season 3 on BBC America; and Daredevil Season 1 on Netflix.
