Netflix is bringing back animated adult satire “BoJack Horseman,” about a hard-drinking half-man/half-horse who’s a washed-up TV star — voiced by Will Arnett — for a second season this summer.

All 12 episodes of “BoJack” season two will bow on Netflix on Friday, July 17, in all territories where the streaming service is available. The first season launched last August.

Arnett (“The Millers,” “Arrested Development”) voices BoJack, star of a 1990’s “Full House”-style sitcom struggling with self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. He’s now starring in his dream movie — a biopic of Secretariat — but is still trying to pull himself out of a rut.

Returning cast includes Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”) as BoJack’s human roommate Todd Chavez; Amy Sedaris (“Chef”) as the cat Princess Carolyn; Alison Brie (“Community”) as BoJack’s ghostwriter; and Paul F. Tompkins (HBO’s “Mr. Show With Bob and David”) as a dog named Mr. Peanutbutter.

“BoJack Horseman” was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who exec produces with Steven A. Cohen, Noel Bright, Arnett and Paul. “BoJack” was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and is animated by L.A.-based ShadowMachine. The show is produced by Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co. exclusively for Netflix.

Netflix, in addition to reviving “Arrested Development” in 2013 for a fourth season, has a deal for comedy “Flaked” starring Arnett slated to debut next year. Arnett is repped by WME and Principato-Young.
