BoJack Horseman Season 4: Netflix Release Date and Everything You Need To Know

Cheryl Greenway What's on Netflix Avatar

Welcome to our Bojack Horseman Season 4 hub. This article will be updated regularly with information as it becomes available.

Netflix’s critically appreciated comedy BoJack Horseman has been renewed for a fourth season, and the writers are already talking about a fifth. 

If you are unfamiliar, the series stars Will Arnett as a talking horse who had his heyday (Hay, hey. See what I did there?) in the 90s as the star of the sitcom Horsin’ Around. Now washed up, he plans to make a big comeback. It’s an alternate world where humans and humanoid-esque animals live side by side. While BoJack is undoubtedly a comedy, it also deals with some really heavy dramatic themes including addiction and the nature of existence and death. Each season has been better than the last, and Season 4 should be no different.

The Cast

BoJack’s voice cast is full of talented comedians and dramatic actors. Will Arnett stars as the alcoholic BoJack, Aaron Paul as roommate Todd Chavez, Amy Sedaris as Princess Carolyn, Alison Brie as Diane Nguyen and Paul F. Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter.

What’s In Store For Season 4

We haven’t been given a lot of info so far, but we do have BoJack’s Twitter account to look to for clues. Given the bombshell dropped in just the last few minutes last season, we can expect a bit to be related to that. And if a recent interview with creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg is any indication, the show may take a political turn. He says that they had the majority of Season 4 written before the 2016 election, but in light of it some of Season 4 and much of Season 5 has the potential to be influenced by the election:

“I do feel gradually over the last eight years we’ve kind of allowed ourselves in the art we make to kind of slip back into that kind of comfort. I think “BoJack” is definitely very much about kind of the burdens of being comfortable. I don’t know if those are the kinds of stories we’re going to be as interested in moving forward. I know I’m certainly less interested in exploring the small hypocrisies of rich liberals. You know what I mean? I’m not in the mood to poke fun at those kinds of people when there are real, real problems that we need to talk about.”

“I mean, the season that we were writing was already far enough along that it didn’t really change anything we were doing. Should we be so lucky to get a Season 5, moving forward the show would almost have to change a little to meet the times. I do think that other shows you’re going to see, moving forward, you are going to start to see a little sharpening of that perspective. What kind of stories do we want to be telling right now? Is this the best use of any of our time?”

Season 4 Release Date

The official release date has been announced and it’s much later than we first expected but will still be coming to Netflix before the end of the year. All of the new episodes of season 4 will be dropping on Netflix on September 8th, 2017 at 00:01 PDT.

Season 4 Trailer

Netflix has yet to release a teaser or trailer, so let’s look back at last season, shall we? SPOILER ALERT!
