One of the most human shows on Netflix -- ironically an animated comedy about an anthropomorphized horse -- ‘BoJack Horseman’ is coming to an end. The sixth season of the show was divided into two parts. Netflix dropped the first part (eight episodes) on October 25, 2019.

The second part is going to be available for streaming on the platform January 31. The trailer that dropped Wednesday shows a grey-haired, older, wiser, BoJack (a transformation we saw in season 6 part one) at the Wesleyan University in Connecticut where he took up a teaching job.

The older-looking, sober BoJack, voiced by Will Arnett, cycles his way to class in the snowy winter. He writes his name on the whiteboard -- “Professor Horseman”. 

The trailer intercutting footage of BoJack and other characters on the show like Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), Diane Nguyen (Alison Brie), Todd Chavez (Aaron Paul), Mr. Peanutbutter (Paul F. Tompkins) and others while the eponymous antihero talks. BoJack says, “I made a lot of mistakes. But I look back at that other BoJack and I think: Who is that?”



The voiceover continues: “I’ve had a lot of what I thought were rock bottoms only to discover other, rockier bottoms underneath. I used to feel like my whole life was an acting job, doing an impression of the people I saw on television, which was just a projection of a bunch of equally screwed up writers and actors. I felt like a xerox of a xerox of a person.”

The trailer is a bittersweet experience. On the one hand, it provides a sort of glimmer of hope in the chaotic intertwined lives of BoJack, Diane, Todd, and others. On the other hand, it is also a reminder of this emotional rollercoaster ride coming to an end.

It is the final chapter in the life of an actor who, “back in the ‘90s” was in a “really famous TV show”. It is the final rung in his arduous journey towards self-improvement. 


The trailer sees Princess Carolyn not only finding solace in her adopted child but also in the only person who has been a rock in her life, her assistant Judah (Diedrich Bader). We also see Mr. Peanutbutter and his ex-girlfriend Pickles (Hong Chau) at peace with each other.

We see Diane still struggling with her demons (but hopefully, she’ll conquer them). One of the more defining scenes in the trailer, one that is emblematic of BoJack’s loneliness and isolation is one at a party where BoJack is sitting in silence as many of the people come and talk to him and take selfies with him, all in fast-forward.

It’s a scene very reminiscent of Zach Braff’s 2004 drama ‘Garden State’. Ironically, Zach Braff was actually killed and cannibalized in the fourth season of ‘BoJack Horseman’.

The trailer ends with BoJack trying to erase his name from the whiteboard. And after a couple of attempts, he realizes he can’t. “Aaaand that's a sharpie,” says BoJack, underlying the theme of the whole show: You can’t undo your mistakes. You can only move past them.
