‘BoJack Horseman’ goes from has-been to star in Netflix show’s season 3 trailer

Netflix isn’t horsing around: The official trailer for season 3 of the animated sitcom BoJack Horseman is here, and thanks to the new preview, we finally have a good idea of what to expect as we continue to follow the life and career of the titular character.

We have gotten used to BoJack (voiced by Will Arnett) as a washed-up actor over the course of the first two season, but all that is going to change for the horse. The trailer shows that success is coming — major success. Not only will the character’s latest film make him “a bona fide movie star,” in the words of Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), he may even be nominated for an Academy Award.

Based on the preview, BoJack is conflicted about becoming a big star. He seems pretty thrilled about it initially and is shown taking advantage of being in the spotlight, but that quickly changes. Diane (Alison Brie) is apparently on to something when she tells him, “This kind of thing can sometimes send you spinning. ‘Oh god, why doesn’t this make me happy? Will anything make me happy?'”

He certainly seems to be spinning. We see him indulging in multiple vices (like alcohol, among other substances), driving his car backwards into a body of water, and even ending up on the wrong end of a taser. It is not exactly the behavior of someone who has suddenly found happiness and contentment, but it should make for interesting plot developments.

Like the episodes before it, season 3 will continue exploring success, relationships between people, and other issues. The series is created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who serves as executive producer alongside Arnett, Aaron Paul, Steven A. Cohen, and Noel Bright.

BoJack Horseman season 3 arrives on Netflix on July 22.

It is not every day that an animated TV series addresses depression and substance abuse, but those days are coming back again -- the wild antics of BoJack Horseman will be returning to Netflix for a fourth season on September 8.

If that's not enough to get you hyped (it should be), feast your eyes on this: Netflix dropped the first official trailer for season 4 on August 24 and it offers a look into the lives of our favorite Hollywoo people (and animals). Mr. Peanut Butter is running for political office, while it looks like Princess Carolyn has found love with an unlikely partner.

Netflix’s ‘American Vandal’ trailer explores a truly ridiculous (and phallic) crime
American Vandal

Netflix, the streaming service that got us hooked on Making a Murderer, doesn't have any qualms about satirizing the true crime genre. The official Netflix trailer for American Vandal, released Thursday, hilariously parodies dark investigative documentaries and docuseries such as Making a Murder, Serial, and others. Instead of trying to solve a brutal crime, however, the series asks a sillier question: "Who drew the dicks?"

American Vandal comes from Tony Yacenda (Pillow Talking) and Dan Perrault (Honest Trailers), two comedians with experience writing short internet videos. They have taken on a story that spans eight half-hour episodes, so we're curious to see how it holds up over the course of an entire season. The preview is promising, as long as you don't mind humor that is a little dirty and sophomoric.
