FX has decided to renew freshman black comedy Baskets after only five episodes.
Baskets is already a record breaker on the FX channel and a leader in basic cable comedy shows.
After failing at a prestigious French clowning college, Chip Baskets looks to keep his dream of becoming a professional clown alive.
Eric Schrier, President of Original Programming at FX Networks and FX Productions:
Baskets is bold, brilliant and incredibly funny and we could not be happier with the reception it’s received in its breakout first season. Baskets brings together three of the most innovative comedic minds working today — Zach, Louis and Jonathan — and we thank them, the rest of the creative team and the entire cast for everything they’ve done for the series.
