When sexual misconduct allegations against executive producer Louis C.K. came to light, FX did not cancel the Baskets TV show. Instead, the cable network cut ties with the scandal-plagued producer, confirming that the show must go on. Is the audience still keen for a third season, or will the already low ratings go to hell in a handbasket? Will Baskets be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned.
An FX black comedy-drama, Baskets stars Zach Galifianakis, Louie Anderson and Martha Kelly. The surreal series centers on Chip Baskets (Galifianakis), who dreamt of being a classically trained French clown, but things didn’t pan out for him when he went to study in Paris. He returns home and, this season, Chip works at his judgmental family’s rodeo, headed up by his mom, Christine (Anderson). Chip has his first full-time job since he worked at Arby’s, but seems to lack the requisite skills. Although his twin brother Dale (Galifianakis) is the only one of the Baskets to have run a business, he can’t get anyone to listen to him. When she’s not otherwise distracted, at least Chip’s friend Martha (Kelly) is able to lend a hand.
