Zach Galifianakis can continue to be sad on TV, but moderately more happy in real life, as FX has renewed his surreal comedy Baskets for a second season. The series, from Galifianakis, Louis C.K., and Jonathan Krisel, follows Chip Baskets, who flunks out of French clown school and ends up moving home with his mother (Louie Anderson) and working as a rodeo clown in California. Now midway through its first season, Baskets will return for a second in early 2017. Take it away, Bernadette.
