‘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.

The best Mad Max movies, ranked from worst to best
A bloodied Chris Hemsworth holds a gun and a steering wheel in Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

After nine years, the next chapter in the Mad Max franchise has arrived. But judging from the abysmal Memorial Day box office of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, there may not be any more trips to the wasteland for these films. That's unfortunate because director George Miller has been directing and writing Mad Max movies since 1979, and they're a cut above standard action flicks.

Now that Furiosa is in theaters, we're ranking all the Mad Max movies from worst to first. If you're a fan of the franchise, No. 1 is not going to surprise you. And aside from Furiosa, all of the other films are currently streaming on Max.

In a new video clip for In a Violent Nature, Johnny (Ry Barrett), the killer at the center of the conflict, is dragging the head of his victim in one hand and the bloody body in the other hand. Johnny enters a remote office in the wilderness and stares at an old mask used to fight fires. This is the same mask Johnny wears on the poster and in the trailer.
