The comedy, starring Zach Galifianakis as twin brothers Chip and Dale Baskets, is set to return in 2018 with more episodes. “Baskets” is currently on the eighth episode of its second season.
The “Baskets” renewal was announced on Thursday by Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Programming.
“This year Baskets has solidified its standing as one of the best comedies on television, building on the momentum of its breakout first season that brought critical acclaim and awards,” said Grad. “Our thanks to Jonathan Krisel, Louis C.K., Zach Galifianakis and the rest of the creative team, Louie Anderson, Martha Kelly and the full cast and crew for taking us on this journey with Baskets.”
Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Krisel created the show, which earned a outstanding comedy supporting actor Emmy last year for Anderson, in the role of family matriarch Christine Baskets.
Krisel directed Thursday night’s episode, “Funeral,” and wrote it with Rachele Lynn. Krisel (“Portlandia”), Louis C.K. (“Louie”) and Galifianakis (“The Hangover”) are also executive producers with M. Blair Breard, Dave Becky, Marc Gurvitz, Andrea Pett-Joseph, and Anna Dokoza.
