Everyone’s favourite bourbon-swillin’ anthropomorphic horse will be returning to Netflix next year after the streaming service confirmed that there will be a third season of BoJack Horseman.

As pointed out by Deadline, Netflix today (28 July) announced it has commissioned 12 new episodes of creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s animated comedy-drama, the second season of which only premiered on 17 July. BoJack himself confirmed the news via Twitter, posting ‘So…season 3 is happening’.

This is good news. Just last week in my Season 2 review, I wrote that “if Netflix’s commitment to BoJack Horseman remains unwavering, I’m in this for the long haul”, and it seems the company is very much invested in making the series one of its cornerstone projects. All major cast members – including Will Arnett, Alison Brie and Aaron Paul – have been confirmed as returning. A release date has yet to be confirmed.

Netflix has also announced that Longmire Season 4 will premiere on 10 September this year, though only in the US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, while Aziz Ansari’s Master Of None drops 6 November in all territories where Netflix is available. A number of comedy specials have also been announced, including one-off shows from stand-ups Demetri Martin and Mike Epps.

In other recent BoJack news, some synth enthusiasts recently posted an electro-tinged cover of the show’s opening theme tune to YouTube.
