What’s in store for BoJack Horseman? Recently, creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg spoke with Vulture about the sixth and final season of the Netflix TV show.
The animated series centers on BoJack Horseman, a washed-up TV star who’s trying to relaunch his career in showbiz. The voice cast includes Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul, Paul F. Tompkins, Adam Conover, Raphael Bob-Waksberg, and Kristen Schaal.
In the interview, Bob-Waksberg revealed it was Netflix’s decision to end BoJack Horseman after six seasons:
Because I was doing this, I asked Netflix a few years ago, Look, do me a favor: If you ever think I should not do that, if you think maybe we’ve reached the end of the road, just give me a heads-up. They don’t have to do that, obviously.But I said I would appreciate it if I could have the forewarning to give the show a proper finale, and not set up some cliffhangers that will never pay off.
So when they picked up season six, they said, Hey, remember how you asked for that heads-up? We think that this is your heads-up. So I’m very grateful that we got that notice.”
Later, the series creator did say the final season will have a clear ending:
I want to be very clear that this is an ending. This is a final season, we are building toward an ending. There’s nothing more to do. I feel very good about the show that we have made, and I think fans should be excited as well. There’s no injustice that needs to be righted as far as I’m concerned, as far as BoJack Horseman is concerned.”
And what about a revival down the line? Bob-Waksberg says he isn’t opposed to the idea of more BoJack Horseman:
Maybe in a couple years I’ll be itching to get back into it. Right now I feel like there’s something nice about making a thing and that’s the thing, then going on to make other things.”
Part one of the sixth and final season of BoJack Horseman premiered on Netflix in October. Part two is slated to debut in January 2020.
