BoJack may not love Hollywoo, but he sure loves Netflix. The popular streaming service announced today that “BoJack Horseman” has been renewed for a fifth season, even making a small animated video showing how the whole deal went down. You can find that video below, and it’s also all over the series’ social-media channels.
The fourth season of the series launched globally on Netflix on September 8, 2017, and critics and fans are still loving the show. In the series, Will Arnett voices BoJack, the failed legendary ‘90s sitcom star from the favorite family sitcom Horsin’ Around, who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. Now, in the presence of his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and his feline agent and ex-paramour Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is primed for his comeback.
BoJack Horseman was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The series is executive produced by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright. Will Arnett (Flaked, Arrested Development) and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) also serve as executive producers. BoJack was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and animated by LA-based ShadowMachine. The show is a Tornante Production, brought to life by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company.
Lately Bojack has been a little more depressing than funny, and while the show is still terrific, it seems to be falling into the same trap that most dramatic-comedies fall into when they become popular- adding more drama and taking out more comedy.
Netflix did not confirm a release window at this time, but the latest season of the series was a success when it launched in early Fall, It be a safe bet to expect that the show will return around the same time next year. You still have four-seasons of Bojack to watch over the next year, and that’s plenty of Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter to go around.
