The Baskets TV show wasn’t cancelled last year, despite a sizable drop in Nielsen ratings. Now that it is back for a fourth season, will the numbers continue to plummet, or can it regain its footing and recover some of its audience? Will Baskets be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An FX black comedy-drama, Baskets stars Zach Galifianakis, Louie Anderson, and Martha Kelly, with Alex Morris recurring. The surreal series centers on rodeo clown Chip Baskets (Galifianakis), his twin, Dale (Galifianakis), and mother Christine (Anderson). In season four, Chip decides it is high time to move out but has a hard time adapting, despite the help of Martha (Kelly) and a life coach.
