Bojack Horseman’s Season 5 Trailer Promises a Spectacular Season of Television

Philbert does look pretty great, doesn’t it? It stars the horse from Horsin’ Around! How could it fail? Well, if anyone can find a way, Bojack Horseman will.

This first look at the fifth season assures the overly hopeful among us that whatever progress Bojack made in season 4, he still has a long way to go. He still drinks too much (despite handy day-by-day markers on his alcohol). His sitcom background will almost certainly make it hard for him to adjust to the differences of serious dramas. He still has crippling self-doubt and depression making it hard for him to find success and happiness.

If anything, the repetition of Diane (LOVE the new hair) saying, “you say you want to get better, but you don’t know how,” strikes at the self-sabotage Bojack so consistently inflicts upon himself. You can be sure he’ll find a way to do so again this season. However, for the first time, I genuinely believe Bojack Horseman will give us an optimistic season. Relatively. He’ll drink half the bottle instead of the entire bottle.

A lot changed for Bojack and his friends in season 4. Hollyhock inspired a genuine selflessness we had never seen from Bojack before (I’m so glad she’s back). Princess Carolyn had a nasty break-up that inspired her towards the new project she and Bojack have embarked on. Todd has found a greater independence and acceptance of himself. And, you know, it has been five seasons. Unless Bojack Horseman turns out to be one of those shows that delves gleefully into nihilism, the turn has to come soon. The moment must arrive where Bojack shows genuine improvement.

In between all that, we’ll get more of the fantastic references and jokes that make you laugh while you’re crying. Yes, Princess Carolyn totally took a dig at Westworld in this trailer. Can you say they don’t deserve it?

Season five of Bojack Horseman hits Netflix on September 14.
