BoJack Horseman Season 6 is coming whether BoJack can handle it or not. Season 5 darn near killed the poor guy/horse but hopefully he’ll have some time to recover.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported that Netflix officially ordered BoJack Horseman Season 6. The show then confirmed the news via its Twitter account.
BoJack Horseman is one of Netflix’s, and television’s very best shows. Ostensibly a comedy, BoJack Horseman also happens to be a searing psychological drama about one aging actor’s ego and depression. It’s a fun watch, of course, but things also happen to get pretty dicey for our beloved lead horse.
So with that in mind – what does show creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg have in mind for future seasons? Before Season 6 was officially confirmed Bob-Waksberg granted an interview to Metro. This is what he had to say about the direction of the show:
“I’m always sure that every season is going to be the season that everyone turns on us, the season that we finally screw it up. Every year that doesn’t happen, it only increases the pressure for the following year. Someday, I’ll probably crack and walk away from the show because it’s killing me, but maybe I’ll wait until we get that eventual backlash. Though really, I’m going to keep making the show as long as I can. There might come a time when the show doesn’t excite me anymore, but there are still lots of stories and relationships to explore. It hasn’t gotten boring yet. There’s a danger of it becoming boring for an audience, maybe before it becomes boring for me, but as long as they still enjoy it, and I still enjoy it, I’m going to keep making it.”
Well there you go. Netflix is still enjoying the BoJack ride too.
BoJack Horseman comes from a time in Netflix’s life cycle in which it didn’t secure the worldwide rights to its shows. That’s why BoJack reruns are heading to Comedy Central in syndication. Thankfully it looks like the won’t effect the fate of BoJack Horseman Season 6.
