'BoJack Horseman' Season 5 Release Date Announced

BoJack Horseman, the American adult animated comedy-drama series that has been praised for its realistic take on dealing with depression, trauma, addiction and self-destructive behaviour.

And it's back for a fifth season which will come to Netflix on September 14. Get the diary out again, here's another to add in, as well as Better Call Saul.


Pitchfork reports that the announcement was made on Twitter in response to a fan query, which was then followed by a humorous back-and-forth between BoJack and Netflix's accounts.


Netflix's Twitter account then responded:


And if you thought it was stopping there, oh no it was just getting started.


It all escalated pretty quickly, but now everyone's going to read about the release date.


In between all these arguments, Netflix shared the first still image from the forthcoming season. Consequence of Sound say that BoJack has either landed himself a new role, or he's scorned another woman, the latter of which seems much more plausible.

BoJack Horseman
stars Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Alison Brie (Mad Men) and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad).

The series has been dubbed the 'saddest show on television' with the last couple of seasons growing darker and darker.


We've watched BoJack engage in an inappropriate sexual encounter with the daughter of his ex-girlfriend. Last year we watched the overdose death of his longtime friend.

But, Consequence of Sound report that Season Four, the show feels free to make emotional gut punches without the need to abide by any genre restraints that come with being an animated comedy.

And it makes us wonder what we will see from this new season that is on the horizon. We've got less than three months to find out and that isn't so bad.
