Rather quietly, BoJack Horseman has become one of the best Netflix original series. In some ways, I even think it might be the best Netflix original ever. The way it blends comedy and drama in an animated show is really unlike anything we’ve seen before.
So, when is BoJack Horseman coming back for Season 3?
UPDATE 5/25/16: Netflix recently announced that BoJack Horseman Season 3 will be on Netflix on July 22, 2016!
Unfortunately, you’re probably going to have to wait quite a long time. Here are the release dates of the first two seasons of BoJack Horseman:
Season 1: August 22, 2014
Season 2: July 17, 2015
Because of the difference in release dates, BoJack Horseman Season 3 is going to be very hard to predict, but I’ve got an inkling about what Netflix is doing.
June has been a really good month for Netflix over the past two years. Netflix has released Orange is the New Black in June, and this year, they rolled out Sense8 at the beginning of June, as well. Overall, June is a good month for Netflix because a lot of shows on TV have ended their respective seasons and are on their summer break, like most network shows and, of course, Game of Thrones.
I foresee Netflix going hard to keep control of June in 2016 with another season of Orange is the New Black and, possibly, BoJack Horseman.
After the first season, Netflix renewed BoJack for Season 2, and the BoJack team was able to crank out a season in about ten months after Netflix renewed the show. So, it’s definitely in the cards for BoJack Horseman to be released in June. If I had to make a guess, I think Season 3 of BoJack Horseman will premiere on Netflix in June 2016, but there’s definitely a chance Netflix will keep the release date in July, like Season 2.
Plus, last year, BoJack Horseman surprised us with a special Christmas episode. If I was a betting man, I’d bet that we’ll see a new episode of BoJack Horseman around Christmas time.
