Fans of animated alcoholic anthropomorphic equines have a reason to celebrate, since Netflix’s ultra-irreverent, sometimes-satirical, animated series BoJack Horseman just nabbed itself a renewal for Season 5!
Netflix made BoJack Horseman Season 5 official in a fourth-wall-breaking, BoJack Horseman kind of way, citing the assertions of its message-bombarding “Clingy Execs” to make the announcement, accompanied by a video. The announcement arrives less than two weeks after Season 4 made its debut on September 8. The Season 5 renewal, tellingly, comes as the still-fresh Season 4 currently carries a 96% approval on Rotten Tomatoes.
BoJack Horseman launched in 2014, depicting the ambivalent, alcohol-addled title character in a horse (Will Arnett) who formerly starred in a hit TV sitcom in the 1990s, as he muddles his way through post-stardom life. Joined on this journey by human pal Todd (Aaron Paul) and his agent and ex-lover – a cat – Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is perpetually planning a carrot of comeback that is typically just out of his reach on the proverbial tied stick of life. The series also features voice co-stars Alison Brie as Diane Nguyen and Paul F. Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter.
The series was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who has been propelled to grander projects, notably tapped to re-write the script to the 2019-scheduled The Lego Movie Sequel. Bob-Waksberg serves as an executive producer alongside Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright, as well as voice stars Will Arnett and Aaron Paul.
BoJack Horseman Season 5 Release Date
BoJack Horseman Season 5 has received its release date in the most BoJack Horseman way possible. Via the show’s hilariously in-character Twitter account, BoJack exasperatedly revealed the release date to an unsuspecting fan.
Friday, September 14. Clear your schedule. Netflix also confirmed via press release just in case seemingly sarcastic Twitter comments aren’t proof enough.
Netflix has also provided a first look at BoJack Horseman Season 5. Presumably BoJack has gotten a new acting job, unless someone really does kill him in episode one and the rest of the season is the Mr. Peanutbutter show.
