Netflix renews animation for a fifth season

Netflix has ordered a fifth series of animated hit BoJack Horseman.

The new run, which will be released by the streaming giant next year, was confirmed with a short animation on the show’s official Twitter feed:

Star Will Arnett also posted a copy of his script for the first episode of the new series, but with a pen carefully positioned over the title.

Season four of the show, about a self-loathing former sitcom star struggling with his comeback and mental health issues, was released earlier this month to widespread acclaim.

Vulture called it: ‘The finest single season of a comedy in ages, though the persistent melancholy and focus on shame and guilt mark it as a comedy-drama.’

And the Onion’s AV Club said: ‘What makes BoJack Horseman so compelling is its brutal honesty, its willingness to treat its incredibly silly characters with the utmost seriousness, to follow bad decisions and show you the ramifications of those bad decisions.’

Bojack Horseman also stars Amy Sedaris, Aaron Paul, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins, all of whom are expected to return.
