'BoJack' Season 6 release date revealed! Trailer teases a violent ending.
Our favorite sad horse is coming back to Netflix for one last trot.
BoJack is back! The depressed celebrity horse will return for BoJack Horseman Season 6 later this year, and as the trailer revealed, the two-part season will also mark the end of the beloved show. With a release date for BoJack Season 6 Part 1 set for October 25 and Part 2 coming on January 31, it’s time to start bracing for a BoJack-less future.
Thankfully, we have a full final season to look forward to, and, if the trailer is any indication, it will be just as sad, funny, and weird as always. The BoJack Season 6 trailer shows Will Arnett’s equine protagonist checked into rehab where he seems to be recovering nicely as he writes a letter to Diane (Alison Brie).
But is this teaser hinting at something sinister? BoJack’s letter narrates the Season 6 trailer, and he jokes early on that he’s being forced to write it as part of his therapy, adding that “it did wonder for the Zodiac killer.” Normally, we’d write that off as the character’s trademark pessimism, but in the context of a series finale, we wouldn’t put anything past a series known for gut-wrenching twists.
Will BoJack go full serial killer at the end of Season 6? We wouldn’t bet on it, but don’t be surprised if that’s exactly what happens.
Elsewhere, Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris) seems to be struggling with single motherhood. She hasn’t even named her baby yet. Diane is still managing to get by as a journalist and seems to be embracing a pivot to video in her career that’s “making a difference.” Todd (Aaron Paul) learns something shocking about his mother. Something happens to Mr. Peanutbutter (Paul F. Tompkins) too.
I’m particularly intruiged by this one image, which shows BoJack looking at a water bottle filled with what appears to be a live-action photo of space.
Is BoJack hallucinating on drugs despite the whole rehab thing? Is this more of an artistic choice? Can we expect the show to take an even bigger creative license in its final season?
The answer to that last question is probably yes. BoJack Horseman has always pushed the bounds of cartoon storytelling in interesting ways, and we doubt that’s stopping now. After Season 5’s excellent eulogy episode (“Free Churro”) we can’t wait to see what’s coming in Season 6.
Though if this trailer is any indication, we may not be emotionally prepared for whatever the Netflix show has in store.
