Netflix's 'BoJack Horseman' Renewed for Third Season
Netflix kicked off the Television Critics Association's summer press tour Tuesday by handing out a renewal for animated comedy BoJack Horseman and set premiere dates for series including Longmire and its upcoming Aziz Ansari scripted comedy.
Will Arnett's BoJack Horseman will be back for a third season, with the pickup coming less than two weeks after the comedy returned for its sophomore run. It was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and is produced by Michael Eisner's Tornante Co.; Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright exec produce alongside Arnett and Aaron Paul. BoJack was designed by Lisa Hanawalt and animated by ShadowMachine and will be back for another batch of 12 episodes.
Meanwhile, the fourth season of A&E transplant Longmire will debut Sept. 10 in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The 10-episode season picks up moments after the finale, in which Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) found out who was behind the murder of his wife and takes off after the killer with murder on his mind.
Parks and Recreation alum Ansari will return to the small screen Nov. 6 with Master of None, a show based on the professional life of Dev (Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the path for the rest of his life. Dev's story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner. The Universal Television series was created by Ansari and Parks alum Alan Yang. Both exec produce alongside Parks showrunner Mike Schur, with Dave Becky and David Miner also on board.
Chelsea Handler's documentary film series Chelsea Does will launch in 2016. It's comprised of four films that feature Handler taking on marriage, racism, technology and drugs.
Set to debut in the fourth quarter of the year are With Bob and David, the comedy starring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, and Marvel's Jessica Jones, starring Krysten Ritter and David Tennant. Sofia Coppola’s A Very Murray Christmas starring Bill Murray and a featuring cast including George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, Rashida Jones and Miley Cyrus, among others, is also due in the fourth quarter, along with the previously announced third and final season of Hemlock Grove.
