This means we’ll be reunited with the show’s anti-hero: an alcoholic, washed-up actor who just so happens to be an anthropomorphic horse.

But what’s in store for Will Arnett’s character? When will the new episodes land on Netflix and who’s in the cast?

When is season 6 of BoJack Horseman released on Netflix?

It was revealed in October that the animated comedy would be returning for a sixth series, in a typically bizarre fashion…

Although no official release date has been announced, every other season has premiered between July and September, so hopefully we won’t be waiting beyond autumn of this year for the new episodes.

Who is in the cast?

Netflix is yet to confirm the cast for season six, but all the regular characters are expected to return…

Will Arnett will be back as the depressed horse, alongside Mad Men’s Alison Brie as his one-time love interest and ghostwriter Diane.

Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul is also expected to return as BoJack’s asexual best friend Todd.

Amy Sedaris will most likely be back as BoJack’s ex-girlfriend and ex-agent Princess Carolyn, as will golden retriever Mr Peanutbutter, played by Paul F Tomkins.

The sixth season will certainly serve up some more celebrity guest appearances, too, with Lisa Kudrow, Stanley Tucci, Jessica Biel, Sharon Horgan, Kristen Bell, Paul McCartney, Daniel Radcliffe and Ricky Gervais having all previously made appearances in the world of Bojack.

In the closing scenes of season five, we saw Diane dropping BoJack off at a rehab clinic following an incident on the set of his new series, in which a drug-addled BoJack nearly strangled his co-star and girlfriend Gina to death.

The eventful finale also saw Princess Carolyn adopt a child and Mr. Peanutbutter propose to his much younger girlfriend.

So, what does that mean for season six?

BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg told Metro US that his anti-hero is “inching towards redemption” in the sixth season.

We are likely to see some of BoJack’s time in rehab, as well as Mr. Peanutbutter preparing for his fourth wedding.

Will there be a season 7?

Hopefully, yes.

“As long as I feel like the show has promise, and Netflix allows us to, it’s a world that’s still worth expanding,” said Bob-Waksberg. “Our audience is still growing and I’m still excited by it.”
