Netflix renews BoJack Horseman for a third season, coming in 2016

New, 6 comments

BoJack Horseman, the irreverent, darkly funny animated series about a washed-up '90s sitcom star who happens to be a horse-man, will return for a third season in 2016, Netflix announced yesterday.

Netflix did not give a release window for season three, but said it will run for 12 episodes, the same length as the first two seasons.

BoJack Horseman debuted on Netflix in August 2014 and its second season premiered earlier this month, with a Christmas special in between. Todd VanDerWerff, culture editor for our sister site Vox.com, called BoJack Horseman "not just the streaming service's best show, but of one of television's best shows" in his review of season two:

It's a strange, sad trip through the dark underbelly of fame, mixed with some of the most brilliant, caustic social commentary out there. And did I mention it's funny? Sometimes bitterly so, with jokes that leave you tearing up as much as laughing.

"So stoked about this and I truly hope all of you are as well," said Aaron Paul, who provides the voice for BoJack Horseman's Todd Chavez, in an Instagram post yesterday. "Thanks for the support you beautiful people."

Paul stars alongside Will Arnett, who voices the titular horse-man; Amy Sedaris, who plays Princess Carolyn, BoJack's agent; Alison Brie, who voices Diane, BoJack's biographer; and Paul F. Tompkins, who plays Mr. Peanutbutter, BoJack's friend/nemesis.
