7. Tuca and Bertie season 1

If you are a big fan of the Netflix original Bojack Horseman, then Tuca and Bertie is going to be right up your alley. The series premieres on Netflix on Friday, May 3.

The first thing you will recognize is how the animation style used is very similar to Bojack Horseman. And that is because Lisa Hanawalt, the illustrator behind one of the longest-running Netflix originals, created Tuca and Bertie. This will be Hanawalt’s second animated series for the streaming giant. And, she will still be working on Bojack Horseman for the platform.

Tuca and Bertie is a series that focuses on two bird women, an anxious songbird and a carefree toucan, who are in their 30s and live in the same apartment building as one another. Don’t be surprised if Tuca and Bertie end up being just as hugely successful as Bojack Horseman.

Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong will be providing the voices of our two main characters. Steven Yeun, who many of you will know from The Walking Dead, Tig Notaro, and Amber Ruffin also voice characters in the series.

All of the episodes will be made available all at once on May 3. There is a total of ten episodes to binge watch when the series does drop. Run times are not 100% clear, but you can expect it to be around the same run time as an episode of Bojack Horseman.
