Following today’s premiere, what are the chances of a BoJack Horseman season 6? Is it something that is going to happen in the near future?
While there is nothing 100% confirmed on the subject at present, what we do know is this: BoJack Horseman remains one of the most-popular animated comedies of its time, and it is one of the few serialized animated shows that really looks and feels as it does. While it incredibly funny at times, it is also surprisingly poignant and meaningful at others. This is a program that initially makes you feel a wide array of different things and has no problem diving into some dark, deep places.
It is with the series’ strong, story-based premise that we’re not entirely sure that this is the sort of program that can go on forever; yet, it doesn’t feel like it is one that is going anywhere in the near future either. Speaking in a new interview with Metro, show creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg had the following to say on how long he wants to keep making the talking-horse Hollywood satire:
I’m always sure that every season is going to be the season that everyone turns on us, the season that we finally screw it up. Every year that doesn’t happen, it only increases the pressure for the following year. Someday, I’ll probably crack and walk away from the show because it’s killing me, but maybe I’ll wait until we get that eventual backlash. Though really, I’m going to keep making the show as long as I can.
I won’t say as long as Netflix allows me to, because I don’t know where I’m going be, or what I’m going to be going, in the future. But as long as I feel like the show has promise, and Netflix allows us to, it’s a world that’s still worth expanding. Our audience is still growing and I’m still excited by it. There might come a time when the show doesn’t excite me anymore, but there are still lots of stories and relationships to explore. It hasn’t gotten boring yet. There’s a danger of it becoming boring for an audience, maybe before it becomes boring for me, but as long as they still enjoy it, and I still enjoy it, I’m going to keep making it.
For the time being, we remain confident that there will at least be a season 6 since there’s no evidence otherwise. Since the show is animated, it also means that Will Arnett, Alison Brie, and the rest of the cast can record at their own pace (to some degree). There is less for them to worry about in terms of getting everyone back together.
Personally, we do find BoJack Horseman to be a brilliant deconstruction of Hollywood ideals, addiction, and also what anyone should really be striving for in life. We hope that it lasts many more years.
