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 has announced that Baskets will be ending after its current fourth season. The news comes with four episodes left in its current run, with the upcoming August 22 airing now acting as its series finale.
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. The show garnered generally favorable reviews in each of its seasons, though recent ratings are not what they were earlier in its run.
