Netflix has produced plenty of fantastic originals over the years that have ranged from thrilling to creepy to hilarious. One of the most bizarre originals has to be Will Arnett's BoJack Horseman. An animated romp about a washed-up 90s sitcom star in a world filled with humans and anthropomorphic animals alike sounds more like the product of a Mad Lib than a TV show, but it was enough of a success from the beginning that Netflix gave early renewal orders for Seasons 2 and 3. Now, Netflix has surpassed itself on the BoJack front and ordered a Season 4 on the same day as the Season 3 premiere.
The order for a fourth season just after the premiere of the third promises BoJack fans yet another look at how the star of the fictitious Horsin' Around deals with life after his sitcom stint, according to Variety. The renewal is great news for those of us who prefer to binge-watch our Netflix originals. The first three seasons have only had twelve episodes each, and each episode clocks in at less than half an hour. Binge-watchers run out of BoJack pretty quickly; knowing that we're in for more at some point in the future is a relief.
Hopefully the entire regular voice cast will be back for Season 4. BoJack Horseman wouldn't be the same without Will Arnett as BoJack, Aaron Paul as BoJack's hanger-on best friend Todd, Amy Sedaris as talent agent/cat Princess Carolyn, Alison Brie as the brainy Diane, and Paul Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter. I know I'd be heartbroken if I'd never get more of Arnett and Tompkins bouncing off each other as the curmudgeonly BoJack and the happy golden retriever Mr. Peanutbutter.
Will Arnett and Aaron Paul both work as executive producers as well as performers for BoJack Horseman, so we probably won't have to worry about losing the BoJack/Todd dynamic for Season 4. Arnett has been busy on large and small screens alike (although he'd happily make time for Arrested Development Season 5), and Aaron Paul has starred in a series on another streaming service with Hulu's The Path. Only time will tell if their schedules affect how and when BoJack will be back for Season 4.
Season 3 should be enough to tide most of us over for a while, even if we watch it all in one sitting. Re-watching BoJack can be even greater than first watches, if only so all the little jokes and asides can be caught. In case you haven't tuned in already, take a look at the trailer for Season 3:
