BoJack Horseman season 2: Netflix renews Aaron Paul and Will Arnett cartoon
12 new episodes expected next year
BoJack Horseman season 1 may have only just hit Netflix, but a season two is already on the way with the streaming service ordering 12 more episodes.
The cartoon has received fairly mixed reviews since it went live all in one go on 22 August, but has clearly drawn enough viewers (Netflix never divulges its ratings info) to warrant a recomission.
It follows a disillusioned, whiskey-drinking horse voiced by Arnett who is searching for meaning in life after becoming a washed up C-lister in the years following his successful sitcom Horsin' Around.

BoJack Horseman forms part of Netflix's drive into comedy, with a chat show hosted by Chelsea Handler also on the way.
Its most critically-acclaimed originals thus far, Orange Is The New Black and House of Cards, were overlooked at the Emmys on Monday night, coming away without a single award thanks to very stiff competition from Breaking Bad's final series and True Detective's much-talked about first series.
Aaron Paul, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins are expected to lend their voices to the show once more, though there is no word yet on a release date.
