Baskets Season 4 Release Date, Cast, News

The rodeo continues for BasketsFX has officially ordered Baskets Season 4 (presumably with a side of curly fries).

Baskets occupies a unique space on television and is perhaps the most “dramedic” of all dramedies in recent years. There is truly bizarre humor here, befitting of Galifianakis’ personal style, but the story of a family trying to stay together is also profoundly, bizarrely moving.

Our thanks to the producers and the cast for making Baskets such a joy to watch.”

Baskets Season 4 Cast

Baskets began as the story of Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis) as he tries to maintain his career as a clown after moving home to Bakersfield from France. Through three seasons, however, Baskets has evolved into a story about the whole Baskets family, including: Chip, Dale (also Galifianakis) and their mom, Christine (played by Louie Anderson in an Emmy-award winning role).

Baskets Season 4 Story

Here is synopsis of Baskets Season 4, courtesy of FX:

Big changes are underway for the Baskets family. After 49 years, Chip (Zach Galifianakis) decides it’s finally time to move out of his mom’s place. But even with the help of Martha (Martha Kelly) and a life coach, he learns that leaving the nest is hard, to say the least. Christine (Louie Anderson) and Ken (Alex Morris) move into a new place they can call their own, but carpet emergencies and missing kitchen magnets make the transition rockier than expected. And Dale (Zach Galifianakis) has found kindred spirits with his fellow inhabitants at the RV park.
