You just can’t keep a good comeback story down…
If viewers thought BoJack Horseman – both the show and the character – would ride off into the sunset after season 5, then you don’t know jack about BoJack. Less than two months after its fifth season premiere, Netflix‘s critically-acclaimed and viewer-adored adult animated series has been given the go-ahead for a sixth season. Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the animated comedy features Will Arnett as the voice of BoJack, the legendary 90’s sitcom star from Horsin’ Around who navigates life with his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and feline agent Carolyn (Amy Sedaris).
The fall has been a season of riches for the animated series: along with news of the series’ return, the fifth season received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from viewers, securing it a “100% Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Comedy Central paired-up first season episodes with the returning South Park on September 26, as part of their syndication deal.
Here’s a look back at the official fifth season trailer for Netflix’s BoJack Horseman:
“This season [Season 5] finds BoJack starring in a new TV show called Philbert, playing a character with disturbing parallels to BoJack’s real life, echoes that force BoJack to confront himself and his past in ways large and small, but the main thing that happens this season is Diane gets a haircut. We spent a lot of time figuring out the haircut — the style, the volume, the bounce, the sheen — and we’re really proud of the way it came out. We really think people are going to like this new season, and Diane’s new haircut!”
