“BoJack Horseman” is poised to become Netflix’s longest-running comedy. But if this first look at the latest chapter is any indication, we’re in for a little more introspection than even “BoJack” fans are used to.
Last season, BoJack (Will Arnett) found an unexpected new family member in Hollyhock (Aparna Nancherla). With Season 5, BoJack’s return to the small screen finds the rest of the usual cast of characters back in their own personal journeys: Princess Caroline’s learning the ropes of a new job, Hollyhock is off away from Chez Horseman, and Mr. Peanutbutter is back as a working actor, just like his equine pal.
This season is headed to Netflix later this year, but as announced last month, “BoJack” repeats will air on Comedy Central in the fall. (Time will tell if this is all a secret plan for a “Hollywoo Stars and Celebrities: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things? Let’s Find Out!” live-action spinoff.) In the meantime, that BoJack “Ugh” getting repeated over and over again is like the animated anthropomorphic horse version of the “A Serious Man” trailer.
In addition to the legendary work from Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Paul F. Tompkins, Aaron Paul, and Alison Brie, Season 4 guest stars Natalie Morales, Abbi Jacobson, and Rami Malek are back too. Among the new additions to this year’s cast include Stephanie Beatriz, Hong Chau, and more.
