BoJack Horseman | Season 6 Trailer | Netflix

The second half of the final season of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman is available for streaming. The streaming giant announced the release of the second half of season 6 in a post on Twitter on Friday, January 31.

The first part of the final, 16-episode season was released on October 25, pulling in audiences as the show’s namesake horse actor, BoJack Horseman, continues to navigate his personal and professional demons. However, during the first half of season 6, BoJack has seemed more committed to his frequently flawed quest to become a better person (horse). Pulling away from “Hollywoo,” BoJack has been teaching courses at Wesleyan University and avoiding the bottle. Yet, as the show always tragically reminds us, running from your past is different from reckoning with it, and BoJack still has much to confront. Will BoJack find some absolution or peace by the show’s end?

Since 2014, BoJack Horseman has become one of Netflix’s most popular and unusual shows. Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the animated series takes place in a world in which humans and humanoid animals coexist. Centering on BoJack Horseman (Will Arnett), a former sitcom star struggling with depression, addiction, and a self-destructive ego as he tries to bounce back to his former fame, the show has never been shy about exploring difficult issues surrounding addiction, sexual assault, mortality, and much more. Although BoJack is at the show’s center, the series’ supporting characters also navigate harrowing, complex emotional gauntlets, finding humor in the darkest places without demeaning them.

Due in part to its bold nature, the show has garnered a dedicated following and been a popular cameo spot for a long list of actors and entertainers including Paul McCartney, Daniel Radcliffe, Naomi Watts, Jessica Biel, and Serial‘s Sarah Koenig all voicing themselves in episodes. Likewise, it garnered significant critical praise for pushing the limits of the animated comedy and its insistence on grappling with difficult subject matter, rather than running from it.

All six seasons of BoJack Horseman are available for streaming on Netflix now. Comedy Central has also acquired cable television rights and airs past episodes on Friday nights.

Jack Wolfe on The Magic Flute and Shadow and Bone season 2
A boy sits on the floor with a flute in The Magic Flute.

At the first glance, The Magic Flute appears to be your regular, run-of-the-mill YA fantasy movie: a young boy with a distinctive scarf goes to a faraway school, where he discovers a magical land filled with snakes, princesses, and yes, a magic flute. The words "Harry" and "Potter" are never uttered, but the movie doesn't hide its similarities with a certain bespectacled boy wizard.

Yet as soon as the characters start singing -- and singing opera arias no less -- you realize this movie is quite different than any other fantasy movie out there. In a conversation with Digital Trends, lead actor Jack Wolfe talks about the challenges of starring in a film that's equal parts fantasy and musical, his love for the fantasy genre, and how his current role as Wylan Hendricks in season 2 of Shadow and Bone differs from his role as Tim in The Magic Flute.

Netflix is about to release Shadow and Bone season 2 — here’s when you can watch it
shadow and bone season 2 when you can watch netflix show 1

One of 2021's breakout hits was Netflix's Shadow and Bone, a big-budget fantasy series that appealed to fans of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight franchises. Adapted from Israeli American author Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone young adult novel, the eight-episode series told the story of Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li), a young orphan raised in Ravka who discovers she is a Grisha, which means one who has special abilities. She must eventually combat the ominous threat of Aleksander Kirigan (Ben Barnes), who is also known as The Darkling.

The first season of Shadow and Bone was a bit hit with critics and audiences alike, becoming only the third show on Netflix to remain at #1 in the ratings for 12 straight days. Naturally, a second season was quickly ordered, and last year, production commenced on the highly anticipated follow-up season. Fans know Shadow and Bone season 2 is just around the corner, but when exactly will it be released? And what additional information is out there about the season? Digital Trends has all the answers for you.

In You’s season 4, Joe Goldberg finally meets his match: himself
you season 4 part 1 joe goldberg worst enemy himself trunk

For three seasons of Netflix psychological thriller You, fans watched the eerily charming Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) rationalize his heinous actions through a twisted internal monologue. His killings were gruesome and obsessive behavior terrifying, made worse by his warped justifications for everything he did. He was merely stalking each woman to protect her; it’s how he shows he cares, after all. He’s truly sorry for every murder, but he really had no other option.

In season 4, however, the tables have turned on Joe. Streaming's favorite hunter has now become the prey, with a new serial killer stalking Joe and seemingly getting away with murder. In the process, Joe encounters an embodiment of the thing that he most fears: himself.
