Rejoice! Everyone’s favorite equine actor returns next week when Season 5 of the acclaimed animated series Bojack Horseman hits Netflix September 14. Changes abound in the new season including a new hairstyle for Diane. As fans will recall, last season set up some major storylines for Bojack and friends, most notably the production of “Philbert” the show within a show about a detective who gets sent to the future, trapping him in a time he doesn’t understand and where he’s alone – but he’s possibly always been alone. Starring Bojack, “Philbert” looks to be a brilliant send-up on on original streaming shows, in the case of “Philbert” on the website What Time is Right Now.com. In fact, there’s already a real whattimeisrightnow.com website right now promoting “Philbert.” Actor Rami Malek of Mr. Robot fame, and soon to be seen portraying Freddie Mercury in the bio-film Bohemian Rhapsody, voices “Philbert” creator Flip McVicker.
Will Arnett voices BoJack, the failed legendary ‘90s sitcom star from the favorite family sitcom Horsin’ Around, who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. Now, in the presence of his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and his feline agent and ex-paramour Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is primed for his comeback.
BoJack Horseman was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The series is executive produced by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright. Will Arnett (Flaked, Arrested Development) and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) also serve as executive producers. BoJack was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and animated by LA-based ShadowMachine. The show is a Tornante Production, brought to life by Michael Eisner’s The Tornante Company.
