Louis C.K. will be debuting two new specials on Netflix, the streaming service announced Wednesday. The first, titled 2017, will debut April 4.

“Louis has been one of the most innovative comedy voices in this new era of stand-up,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in a statement. “He has also been a thought leader in the business of comedy. We have marveled at his creativity and his ability to invent comedically and commercially, and are thrilled that he is bringing his newest specials to Netflix.”

His most recent special, Live From the Comedy Store, was released via his website for $5 in January 2015 before later premiering on FX. The hour scored him the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special, an award he previously nabbed for 2013’s Oh My God and 2011’s Live at the Beacon Theater.

C.K. is also accomplished in the television world: His FX show Louie received three Emmys and was nominated for Golden Globes. More recently, he released Horace and Pete on his website. The show, starring C.K. and Steve Buscemi, is now streaming on Hulu.

By filming these two specials for Netflix, C.K. is joining a slate of comedians also debuting hours on the streaming service this year, including Amy Schumer, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, and Jerry Seinfeld. While 2017 will premiere this spring, the second special doesn’t yet have a title or release date.
