Netflix has found a major hit in BoJack Horseman, and even longtime fans of the animated series may be surprised to learn these 25 facts. Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the show first premiered on the streaming service in 2014 and introduced audiences around the world to the alcoholic anthropomorphic horse known as BoJack Horseman (voiced by Will Arnett). The surprising comedy has become one of Netflix's best original pieces of programming in the years that have followed.
The series has tackled plenty of topical subjects over the years, including the #MeToo movement during season 5, and has continued to surprise viewers by everything it has discussed. Unlike many shows that have approached similar topics, it is BoJack Horseman that managed to do this better than most. After 61 binge-able episodes, fans may think that they know all there is to learn about the series, but they should think again.
Screen Rant's newest video discusses 25 facts about BoJack Horseman that even the most dedicated and longtime fans may not know about. Many of them are behind-the-scenes details that only make the show more enjoyable and amazing after the fact. So whether you have only just recently checked out BoJack Horseman or have been with the series since day one, check out the full list of facts in the video featured at the top of this post.
It is somewhat surprising to learn about how much of BoJack Horseman is a mixture of happy coincidence - like how the theme song was created - or was directly pulled from Bob-Waksberg's own personal experiences. The long-running relationship between him and production designer Lisa Hanawalt has certainly helped BoJack Horseman's production process too, as she has been able to quickly figure out what his vision has been for the show.
These facts are just a few that we've found, though, and there is the potential for more to surface in the future. BoJack Horseman currently has five seasons of content available to watch, but there is more on the way. Netflix renewed the animated series for a sixth season late last year, so seeing where the story goes and what other developments are made could bring new facts to light. There's currently not any news on when season six will debut, but it is expected to arrive sometime this year on Netflix. As long as Bob-Waksberg is still in charge of the series, BoJack Horseman will hopefully continue to be one of Netflix's best series, and maybe we'll get more of these BTS facts to increase enjoyment along the way.
