Netflix revealed Friday that a show that has been a fixture on the streaming service will be coming to a conclusion with its upcoming sixth season. The show is the adult animated comedy “BoJack Horseman,” which will roll out the first part of season six on Oct. 25.
The show’s final season will unspool in two parts, with part two coming Jan. 31. Season six will reportedly consist of a total of 16 episodes.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that wrapping the series was the result of a creative decision by show creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg.
“Sources say that Bob-Waksberg plotted season six as a conclusion to the story of a washed-up 1990s sitcom star from ‘Horsin’ Around’ (voiced by Will Arnett) navigating life with his human sidekick, Todd (Aaron Paul), and feline agent, Carolyn (Amy Sedaris),” THR reports, adding: “The news comes nearly a year after the fifth season launched to glowing reviews. Season five has an impressive 92 percent rating among critics and 95 percent among viewers on RottenTomatoes.com.”
The report notes that Bob-Waksberg recently launched the innovative Amazon animated comedy “Undone,” which he co-created with “BoJack’s” Kate Purdy.
