Back in March 2017, Zach Galifianakis stated, in his exclusive interview to Collider, that he is proud of his television project on FX, and is working on a next season. This was an exciting news, without a doubt, but we have been waiting for the official announcement. Luckily, May 24, 2018, FX officially confirmed Baskets Season 4.
In fact, the show's ratings were weak. The third season premiere of Baskets has garnered only 0.536 million viewers with a 0.19 demo rating among adults 18-49. The figures have decreased up to 0.307 million viewers by the end of the season. Generally speaking, it was quite unfavorable statistics even for such cable network as FX is.
Yet if we take a look at the response from the target audience, the picture turns into much more picturesque. On Rotten Tomatoes, the current installment of Baskets holds a score of 4.3/5, with a 84% approval rating from the viewers. At the same time, most of the critics were impressed, given a score of 8.67/10, as well as a 100% approval rating.
To be honest, we supposed that the dramedy Baskets has a weak chance for a next season on FX, especially, given the scandal against Louis C.K., the show's executive producer. Nonetheless, it seems that Galifianakis possesses such an attractive magnificence that he apparently was managed to convince the leadership of FX to order one more season of his show.
Baskets Season 4 Release Date
As mentioned above, According to the official announcement by FX, Baskets will be coming back for a fourth season in 2019. However, the broadcaster has yet to announce the exact premiere date. It would be fair to think that Baskets Season 4 premiere is slated for this January due to the current schedule of the series. Yet the premiere has not happened.
Looks like FX faced with some issues while producing Season 4. Otherwise, such a hiatus looks suspicious. Nevertheless, FX explicitly emphasized that Baskets Season 4 is set to premiere in 2019. Most likely the premiere has been shifted to this fall. In the best case scenario, we will have to wait summer. In any case, we are looking forward to any official news on the subject from FX, in order you to be the first who knows the most actual news. Therefore, stay tuned for updates. As soon as FX announces the exact date, we will update this page.
