The Zach Galifianakis FX comedy vehicle Baskets has just received some great news. The series has been renewed for a second season by the network. Baskets is coming off the most-watched basic cable primetime comedy premiere of the season while maintaining a hearty fan base of over 1.28 million per episode there after. Season 2 will premiere in early 2017.
The series was co-created by Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel with Galifianakis playing two roles in the series. The comic is both Chip Baskets, a local rodeo clown as well as Chip’s twin brother, Dale Baskets.
