‘BoJack Horseman’ Renewed for Season 5 at Netflix

BoJack Horseman” has been renewed for Season 5, Netflix announced Thursday.

The announcement came in the form of a video posted to the show’s social media channels, which show a “clingy netflix exec” texting BoJack to share the news of the renewal. Watch the video below.

The animated series stars Will Arnett as BoJack, the failed legendary ‘90s sitcom star from the favorite family sitcom “Horsin’ Around,” who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships.

Now, in the presence of his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and his feline agent and ex-paramour Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is primed for his comeback. The series also features the voices of Paul F. Tompkins and Alison Brie.

Season 4 launched globally on Netflix on Sept. 8 and received widespread critical acclaim. The season currently has a 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The season saw BoJack coming to grips with his identity after disappearing at the end of Season 3, while his friend Mr. Peanutbutter (Tompkins) makes a bid for governor. Todd, meanwhile, explores his life without BoJack, and comes to terms with the fact that he is asexual.

The series was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who also executive produces. Steven A. Cohen, Noel Bright, Arnett, and Paul also serve as executive producers. BoJack was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and animated by LA-based ShadowMachine. The show is a Tornante Production, brought to life by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company.
