BoJack Horseman Season 6: Premiere Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

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 Cast: Who is in it?

All of the main cast members will be back for the sixth season if and when it gets renewed. Who else could voice sardonic Bojack but Will Arnett? In season 5, Aaron Paul was back as dopey Todd, while Amy Sedaris was once again heard voicing the sassy yet pragmatic Princess Carolyn. Chuck in Paul F. Thomas as relentlessly earnest Mr Peanutbutter (also a ‘90s sitcom star – and a dog) and Alison Brie as his wife, the writer Diane Nyugen, and the gang of season 5 was reunited.

BoJack Horseman Season 5 Plot: What is it about?

In season 4, we left Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter as they attempted to navigate the ups and downs of their relationship, with mixed results, while Bojack became closer to Hollyhock, a 17-year-old who’s recently entered his life. For all Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter’s rough patches, there’s a mutual understanding that suggests they can stay the course. Less certain was the future of Bojack and Hollyhock’s relationship. At the end of season four, she told him that didn’t need a “father” figure but could maybe do with a “brother”. Given that she’s a preternaturally smart and mature 17-year-old and he’s an overgrown man-child, that dynamic could be mutually beneficial.

Season 5 saw these relationships continue to deepen. The last time we saw goofy Todd and switched-on Princess Carolyn, he was giving her life advice, so Bojack Horseman is all about role-reversals right now. As with all good dramas, the writers know characters’ relationships must ebb, flow and develop – as in real life – to keep things moving.

As was in the previous seasons, the titular character would be explored further in season 6 with depression, addiction, self-destructive behavior, and trauma forming shaping the character. Showrunner Raphael Bob-Waksberg told Metro: “We’ve been inching toward a desire for redemption, for a kind of inner peace.”

BoJack Horseman Season 6 Release Date: When will it premiere?

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 was back in September, suggesting work had been underway on the season for some time. The air date for the fifth season of Netflix’s animated comedy series “BoJack Horseman” had been revealed to be September 14, 2018.

It’s probably almost time for an announcement on season 6 which has not been renewed yet. We will update this section when it is. An autumn 2019 release could be expected if the series is recommissioned.
