Chip Baskets wants to follow his dream of being a French clown - however, reality keeps interfering. Saddled with financial difficulties and facing an impenetrable language barrier, he moves back home to Bakersfield with high hopes. There, he is forced to confront his past while working as a rodeo clown and competing with his siblings for his mother's approval and affection.
FX announced today that Baskets has been renewed for a third season. The good news comes as the comedy winds down on a solid sophomore run that continued to garner critical praise and consistent viewership.
Co-created by and starring Zach Galifianakis, Baskets follows a middle-aged man with dreams of becoming a professional clown, though real life has always seemed to get in the way. Three episodes remain in Season 2, which will air its finale on March 23.
Look for Season 3 of Baskets in 2018.
