Netflix has picked up a third season of their animated comedy series BoJack Horseman, which stars Will Arnett and Aaron Paul. The streaming giant has ordered 13 episodes for the show’s third season, which is expected to premiere globally in 2016.
Created by Bob-Waksberg, BoJack Horseman tells the story of BoJack, the legendary star of the 1990’s family favorite situation comedy “Horsin’ Around” who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. The series is produced by Michael Eisner’s Tornante Company and features the voices of Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Aaron Paul, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins.
The third season renewal, which was announced by Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos at Netflix’s executive panel at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour 2015, comes less than two-weeks after the show’s second season dropped on Netflix. In addition to announcing the renewal, Sarandos used the panel to make a number of other announcements:
– The ten episode fourth season of Longmire, which Netflix ordered after original network A&E cancelled the series, will launch on Thursday September 10th. The new season will only be available on Netflix in the following territories: the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
– Aziz Ansari’s Netflix series has finally been given a title: Master Of None. The series, which premieres globally on November 6th, follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Aziz Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. . Jon Benjamin, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Noel Wells and Kelvin Yu also star.
– Lilyhammer, the Norwegian series starring The Sopranos alum Steven Van Zandt, has been cancelled after three seasons. Sarandos said that there were financial issues which prompted the cancellation. The show initially aired in the UK on BBC Four, before it moved to Netflix UK for the remainder of its run.
– Finally, Netflix announced that a wealth of original series would debut in Q4 (no specific premiere dates yet), including Bob Odenkirk and David Cross’ sketch show With Bob And David, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Bill Murray’s A Very Murray Christmas, the final season of Hemlock Grove and Bill Burr’s animated comedy series F is for Family.
