We love “BoJack Horseman.” We need more “BoJack Horseman.” Somehow, we’re going to find a way to say more than this in this article.
Specifically, let’s dive into what is happening right now as the show makes its way towards a season 3 premiere on Netflix in 2016. The challenge for the show is clearly extraordinarily high, given that you are dealing with everything from mental illness to the media to the complications of instant fame. (Also, improv as a cult.) There’s a lot to live up to, not only in terms of giving this show laughs, but also making it heartfelt and emotional.
So following a rather lengthy tribute we gave the show earlier this year, we now have a comment from creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg to Indiewire, where he lays out just where this story is at the moment, and what the team still has to do:
“We just finished writing the season. We had our last table read a couple weeks ago, right before Thanksgiving, which is great [because] now we know what the season is. But now we have to make it. We’ve been finishing up record[ings] and animating the first few. It’s really coming together, and I think we have some fun surprises and do a lot of fun stuff.”
The thing with “BoJack” is that it is the sort of show that will probably be superficially misleading. That’s no fault of the show, but rather the perception that the animated medium is corny, and there’s not anything meaningful that can be done with it unless you are either Pixar or “South Park.” We feel like over time more and more people are going to give this series a chance, and it is far from reaching its peak in terms of popularity.
We’ll hopefully have some more updates as we get closer to the season 3 premiere, but for now head over to this link to get some other scoop on everything we cover, sent right over to you via our CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: Netflix:
