Less than two weeks after Netflix dropped the critically-acclaimed fourth season of BoJack Horseman for fan binge consumption, the streaming service had one of their “clingy executives” text our beloved BoJack to let him know that he’s been renewed for Season 5. Thankfully, BoJack was kind enough to share the exchange with us:

I wouldn’t hold my breath when it comes to that “see you on set soon” stuff, Netflix — it’s BoJack. Maybe you could start by buying him a decent phone charger, though?
The creative team behind BoJack Horseman isn’t wasting any time getting started on Season 5, either. Will Arnett (BoJack Horseman) tweeted a picture of the season’s first episode script, written by Kate Purdy but with the title “conveniently” blocked by a pen; and Paul F. Tompkins (Mr. Peanutbutter) tweeted a picture of his and Alison Brie‘s (Diane Nguyen) name cards at what appears to be a table read:

While no premiere date was announced for the BoJack Horseman‘s fifth season, the show is expected to return some time in mid-2018.
Set in a world where humans and human-like animals live and work together normally, the series introduces us to BoJack Horseman (Arnett, Arrested Development): washed-up star of the ’90s sitcom Horsin’ Around who plans his return to fame through a tell-all autobiography he’s working on with his ghostwriter Diane Nguyen (Brie, GLOW). If that’s not stressing and depressing BoJack enough, he also has to deal with his agent and sometimes-girlfriend Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris, Strangers With Candy), his freeloading roommate Todd Chavez (Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad), and his friend/sitcom rival Mr. Peanutbutter (Tompkins, There Will Be Blood).
