Well, that was quick. Netflix’s constantly kvetching, washed up, alcoholic, anthropomorphic equine is has already been scheduled for a third season.
Following the series premiere less than a year ago, BoJack Horseman will return for its third season run sometime in 2016 with at least 12 new episodes. All the series regulars are set to return (Will Arnett, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, etc.) and no major shakeups have yet been reported.
For the uninitiated, BoJack Horseman follows the self-loathing former star of a sitcom called Horsin’ Around as he putzes around Hollywood, complaining about anything and everything. The series has caught fire with audiences, so if you’re a fan of the so-sad-that-it’s-funny genre, this is right up your alley.
News of the show being picked up came via the Television Critic’s Association summer press tour, and Vulture reports that plenty of other Netflix announcements came out of the event. Here’s a rundown:
