Now that we’re almost two weeks into 2018, we can start getting ready for TV premieres. December and January are usually hiatus months, but we can still look forward to the new season trailer’s. Two trailers were released today: Baskets season 3 and Silicon Valley season 5.
Baskets Season 3 Trailer

Baskets is one of my favorite shows on television. Through two seasons Zach Galifianakis and Louie Anderson have starred in the funny, oddly charming show about a rodeo clown dreamer and his family. If you think that’s an odd premise, you’re right, but the show is consistently great. Season 2 ended with Christine (Louie Anderson) purchasing the rodeo that Chip (Galifianakis) worked at, and season 3 seems to focus heavily on the aftermath. If it’s anything like the first two seasons, it’ll be quality television. Baskets season 3 premieres January 23rd.
Silicon Valley Season 5

The season 5 trailer for Silicon Valley doesn’t give us a whole lot to work with. What we do know is TJ Miller’s Erlich Bachman will not be in it, which should trigger some changes for the Pied Piper crew. The cast is deep and talented enough to pick up the slack, but season 4 was my least favorite. Most of that was because Richard was a douche (by design) so hopefully he goes back to his uncomfortably awkward self. I’m also a huge Gavin and Jared fan, so the more of them the better. Silicon Valley season 5 premieres March 25th.
