Netflix orders third season of ‘BoJack Horseman’

Netflix also reveals further details about its forthcoming Aziz Ansari comedy series

Netflix has renewed BoJack Horseman for a third season.

Season one of the animated comedy series launched on the streaming service in August 2014, with season two premiering earlier this month. Now, less than a fortnight since season two debuted, Netlflix has confirmed that it has commissioned a third run of BoJack Horseman episodes for 2016.

The show’s voice cast includes Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins, with Arnett and Paul also serving as executive producers. Guest appearances over the first two seasons have come from Kristen Schaal, J.K. Simmons, Anjelica Huston, Lisa Kudrow and Ed Helms, among others.

Meanwhile, former Parks And Recreation star Aziz Ansari has announced that his forthcoming Netflix comedy series, Master Of None, will launch on the streaming service on November 6.

Ansari co-created the series with Alan Yang, an executive producer on Parks And Recreation, which came to an end in February after a seven-season run on NBC. Ansari and Yang will serve as executive producers on the series alongside another Parks And Recreation alumnus, the show’s co-creator Michael Schur.

Netflix’s plot synopsis for the series teases: “Based on the comedic viewpoints of Aziz Ansari, the show follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Aziz Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, 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.”
