The American animated sitcom Bojack Horseman that Raphael Bob-Waksberg has made. The dark comedy series made its Netflix debut on August 22, 2014, while it ended on January 31, 2020, with its sixth season.
Produced by Corey Campodonico, Alex Bulkley, Mehar Sethi, Kate Purdy, and Lisa Hanawalt, each episode ran for 25 minutes. The creator of the show is joined by Steven A. Cohen, Noel Bright, Jane Wiseman, Andy Weil, Aaron Paul, Blair Fetter, and Will Arnett to serve as the executive producers of the series.
Through the years, the series has gathered good audience response and decent critic reviews along with various accolades like Best Animated Series, Annie Awards, Writers Guild of America Awards, among others in its kitty. But the streamer confirmed the closure of the animated comedy-drama, and the keen viewers are disappointed. So let’s know what Bojack Horseman is all about and why it isn’t getting a sequel anymore.
What is Bojack Horseman About?
The story is set against the backdrop of an alternate world where humans thrive along with animals that possess human-like characteristics. It covers the life of Bojack Horseman, an anthropomorphic animal and a faded star that worked in a popular sitcom from the 1990s, Horsin’ Around.
Living in his mansion in Hollywood Hills, he now is pretty much unknown but wants to make his presence felt with the help of an autobiography that Diane Nguyen, a ghostwriter, would pen. The story shows his involvement in substance abuse and how he becomes reckless with its usage: his agent and former girlfriend Princess Carolyn, rival Mr. Peanutbutter, and roommate Todd Chavez.

Why Didn’t Netflix Renew The Bojack Horseman For the Subsequent Season?
To the utter dejection of the fans who have been avidly following the show since its premiere in 2014, the streaming giant Netflix announced its termination way before the complete telecast of its last season 6. However, the makers were long informed about the decision, and they then accordingly created the finale edition of Bojack Horseman, which was comprised of 16 episodes divided into two parts of eight episodes each, unlike the first five seasons with 12 episodes each. This was meant to end the stories of the characters coherently.
Although the makers were not expecting a soon end to the series, the business policy of Netflix meant its cancellation and eventually ending the show.
The previous and final season of the sitcom ended on an appropriate note with no cliffhangers or unresolved questions so that audience wouldn’t have to wait for subsequent seasons. Thus, this means the making of the new season has finally terminated with no hope to return in the near future. The fans will have to make peace with the fact that the series ultimately ended with a total of 77 episodes broadcasted in its six seasons.
