Netflix doubles down on Bojack Horseman with 12 more episdes

Well, that was quick. Never bashful about doubling down on its original series, Netflix has done just that with its raucous new adult-animated series starring everybody’s favorite functioning-alcoholic horse, Bojack Horseman.

On July 17, as reported by Variety, viewers will be treated to 12 new episodes of the show about a man (who’s also a horse) looking back on the horse-man he once was, and drinking himself into an early, oversized grave.

The series, which centers around the washed up ’80s TV star who can’t move on from the past, has become a modest hit for Will Arnett, who’s in need of a win. Towing several collapsed projects — the most recent being the newly-cancelled CBS sitcom The Millers — the actor’s brilliantly-abrasive comedic style has had a hard time finding a solid vehicle when it comes to life after his Arrested Development heyday as the loveable/terrible Gob Bluth (that’s Gob with a soft “G”).

Arnett stars in the show alongside another actor who’s had some trouble finding a permanent home after a seminal series, Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, who plays Bojack’s human roommate Todd Chavez. The cast is filled out by Bojack’s ghostwriter for his memoirs Diane Nguyen (played by Community’s Allison Brie) Amy Sedaris (Strangers with Candy) as Princess Carolyn the cat, and Paul F. Tompkins (Bob’s Burgers, Mr. Show with Bob and David) as Mr. Peanutbutter, the dog.

The series was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, with Arnett and Paul serving as Executive producers for the series, along with Steven A. Cohen, and Noel Bright.

Arnett will be kept busy with his Netflix work, according to Variety, as the streaming platform/network will be premiering a new comedy starring Arnett called Flaked next year. And, of course, there’s also the forthcoming Arrested Development Season 5, for which a launch date has yet to be confirmed.

Bojack Horseman Season 2 will premiere on Netflix Friday, July 12.
