BoJack Horseman Showrunner Interview

Fans of Bojack Horseman don’t have to be sold on Emmy consideration anymore. For four seasons, they’ve watched the Netflix animated series deliver a scathing commentary on Hollywood and the world at large through the lens of anthropomorphic animal celebrities and interspecies romance.

We’d previously covered Bojack Horseman’s fourth season, the one that is currently eligible for 2018 Emmy nominations, when it premiered in September. At the time of the launch, we didn’t want to spoil too much of the details of Bojack’s mother’s dementia flashback episode “Time’s Arrow” or the scathing reaction to mass shootings with Courtney Portnoy’s kickass action heroine movie delayed every time there was another shooting. But now, all spoilers are on the table.

Bojack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg spoke to /Film before the Netflix #FYSEE panel for Bojack Horseman, which hopefully got the show on the minds of Emmy voters. Season 5 will arrive on September 14 and we got to go deep into exactly how the show is paving a new way for television animation.

bojack horseman season 5

BoJack Horseman, the funniest show about self-loathing you’ll ever see, is one of the best original shows on Netflix. Somehow able to combine extremely sharp, often obscure jokes with crushing yet keen reflections on depressing, it’s a truly remarkable piece of pop entertainment. And Netflix isn’t horsing around about it, either. Per BoJack Horseman’s own Twitter account, straight from the horse’s mouth, comes word that Netflix has greenlit Bojack Horseman Season 5.

bojack horseman 3

“Where’s Bojack” is the mystery of Bojack Horseman’s fourth season, and also the feeling of fans who’ve been waiting since they binge-watched season 3 last summer. Last season featured the landmark episode “Fish Out of Water” in which Bojack (Will Arnett) attended an underwater film festival, featured Bojack finding out he had a long lost daughter, and introduced Mr. Peanutbutter’s (Paul F. Tompkins) plan to for office.

/Film has been pursuing Bojack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg for several years now, so we had a lot to talk about when we finally spoke by phone. We spoke vaguely about season 4, so that you could read this either before or after you watch the season, and discussed general questions that have been percolating about the show for four years.

bojack horseman season 4 trailer

BoJack Horseman is a miracle. Netflix’s silly talking animal series is one of the funniest television shows out there right now, so full of brilliant sight gags and clever wordplay and imaginative slapstick. But this is a silly talking animal show with ambitions. In the outlandish world of “Hollywoo,” characters grow and change and evolve. They face dark truths. They grapple with inner demons. They contend with the emotional collateral damage they leave in their wake. And the show does all of this while being formally daring, experimenting with style and format and embracing the Netflix model to play and be bold. It’s the best show to ever bear Netflix’s name.

And wouldn’t you know it? Here’s the BoJack Horseman season 4 trailer right now.

Bojack Horseman season 3 trailer

Who would have guessed that the closest spiritual successor to Mad Men would come in the form of a half-hour cartoon about a washed-up sitcom star who just happens to be a horse? Netflix’s Bojack Horseman was a little shaky in the early going, but it hit its funny-sad stride around the middle of its first season, and by its second season was a legitimate contender for one of the best shows on television.

So will Bojack Horseman keep up the good work in season 3, or will it self-destruct just like its equine star? Watch the first Bojack Horseman season 3 trailer and see for yourself. The returning voice cast includes Will ArnettAmy SedarisAlison BrieAaron Paul, and Paul F. TompkinsRead More »
