BoJack Horseman is an American adult animated sitcom created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The series stars Will Arnett as the title character, BoJack Horseman. The supporting cast includes Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Paul F. Tompkins, and Aaron Paul. The series' first season premiered on August 22, 2014, on Netflix, with a Christmas special premiering on December 19. The show is designed by the cartoonist Lisa Hanawalt, who had previously worked with Bob-Waksberg on the webcomic Tip Me Over, Pour Me Out.
Despite giving mixed reviews upon its debut, critics were notably more positive towards the second half of the first season, before acclaiming the subsequent seasons. The critical consensus from Rotten Tomatoes is representative of this critical improvement, as the first season was stated to "pale in comparison to similar comedies", while the consensus for season three referred to the show as "one of the funniest and most heartbreaking shows on television". The series was renewed for a fourth season, scheduled to premiere on September 8, 2017.
