With the debut of BoJack Horseman back in 2014, Netflix created arguably one of the best and most influential animated series currently available on television. The series has become beloved by fans in its four seasons on the air, and now the creative forces behind the show have another project up their sleeves now. The creator of BoJack Horseman as well as a producer are making a move to Amazon for a brand new animated series called Undone.
We have officially learned that BoJack Horseman's Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy are about to team up with Amazon Studios for a brand new animated series. Much like BoJack Horseman, it sounds like Undone will keep things reasonably cerebral and dark. The series focuses on a young woman named Alma (portrayed by Alita: Battle Angel's Rosa Salazar), who gains a deeper understanding of the concept of time following a nearly fatal car accident. With this newfound ability at her disposal, Alma will go on a journey to unravel the mystery of her father's death. In addition to Rosa Salazar, Undone is also looking to enlist Life in Pieces' Angelique Cabral as Alma's younger sister.
As far as premiere dates go, it looks like we still have some time to go before Undone actually premieres as an Amazon Prime original. Though we do not have a set release window yet, we can confirm that it's aiming to drop its first season in 2019.
Of course, as intriguing as Undone is in terms of its core concept, it also raises a significant question about the future of BoJack Horseman over on Netflix. The tale of BoJack has very obviously not come to an end yet. In fact the end of Season 4 seemed to tease a new direction for BoJack as the brother of Hollyhock Manheim-Mannheim-Guerrero-Robinson-Zilberschlag-Hsung-Fonzerelli-McQuack. There's currently no indication that Undone will interfere with the progress of BoJack Horseman's fifth season, but we will keep you posted with more information on that front as it becomes available to us.
Ultimately, the choice to enlist Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy to bring Undone to Amazon makes plenty of sense. Although the streaming platform has seen success with shows like The Looming Tower and Transparent, Undone will mark the first time that it has delved into the world of animated content. Since it's moving into uncharted territory, enlisting two of the people responsible for Netflix's first (and arguably still best) animated property seems like a logical business decision.
CinemaBlend will bring you more details related to the development, production, and eventual release of Undone as new information is made available to us.
