In an increasingly crowded market, Bojack Horseman might the funniest, most moving grown-up cartoon on the internet. Bojack (voiced by Will Arnett) is a talking horse who hit the big time as the star of a saccharine ‘90s sitcom called Horsin’ Around but is now in his 50s, washed-up and spending too much time boozing and moping about his huge LA apartment.
He lives in Hollywoo, so named because Bojack knocked the ‘D’ off the Hollywood, and is guided through life by his almost equally dysfunctional friends. The Netflix show is hilarious yet dark, at times seeming more like a drama than a comedy. The show has been created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The series’ first season premiered on August 22, 2014, on Netflix.
BoJack Horseman Season 5 Release Date: When is it coming?
The show was renewed for its fifth season just weeks after the fourth season became available to stream on Netflix. The news was unveiled in two titillating ways. First, Will Arnett tweeted a photo of the series’ first episode, penned by Kate Purdy, who’s been writing sporadically for the show since 2014. That back in September, suggesting work had been underway on the season for some time. Oh, if only we could know the contents of that script!
There was also an official video from Netflix around the same time. In the cartoon clip, we see a close-up of Bojack’s phone as he receives a string of texts from a contact saved as “clingy Netflix exec”. The messages read: “Hey Bojack, it’s Netflix… We would have called but we remember how angry you were last time we interrupted your nap… Anyway, big news!… You’re back for a Season 5! See keep up the good work and see you on set soon!”
The release date for the fifth season of Netflix’s animated comedy series “BoJack Horseman” has been revealed: It returns September 14, 2018.
