Is Bojack Horseman Season 7 canceled

The series BoJack Horseman released its last season on January 31, 2020, and it’s been over a year since the people started to ask the creators for the 7 season. The sixth season of Bojack Horseman was the longest ever season and was divided into two parts with both containing 8 episodes each. 

The storyline of Bojack Horseman starts with the protagonist, a humanoid horse who once used to be a famous character but is now living a life of misery, His fame is all gone and he isn’t as cheerful as he used to be. He’s depressed and lonely as the struggles of his life dawn upon him. He is shown struggling with his life to get a role and his world is swirling around. Due to his glum and monotonous life, he also becomes addicted to drugs and roams around the streets of Hollywood city in hope of getting a new role. 

However, as the series proceeds, at the end of the sixth season, Bojack Horseman’s life returns back to normalcy. All the hardship finally pays off and all his messed up life starts to make sense. Other than her, all the other characters started to get settled. From the perfect ending at the end of season 6 and Bob’s interview, we can conclude that Bojack Horseman Season 6 was the last season on Netflix.

Has Netflix really lost the plot with Bojack Horseman Season 7?

Though Bob Waksberg seems interested in giving the series a better goodbye, the chances of Bojack Horseman Season 7 reaching its viewers are relatively low. Netflix for the past few days has been in news due to a drop in viewership and the countermeasures it is taking. For it to regain its rank, Netflix is desperately on the lookout for a title that gives its next big hit. It is showing more interest in producing series similar to New Girl and not more “sad coms” like Bojack Horseman. Seems Netflix doesn’t want to renew the popular shows, the most popular and longest-running shows, that made their network successful.

The last decade on streaming platforms has been completely oversaturated with darker media, making the world look more depressed and nihilistic. Mass opinion on this change in the stance of Netflix is that viewers would prefer a few more sad comedies than live-action remakes of beloved games or animated shows. The simple reason is that it’s so incredibly powerful that it is more than worth watching. But one can hope the studio extends the show to justify the closure in the final episodes of the sixth season.

Bojack Horseman Season 7 Release Date

Bojack Horseman has received critics from all around the world due to its realistic and genuine character. There have been long unconfirmed rumors for the release of Bojack Horseman Season 7. 

In an interview, Bob-Waksberg stated, “I suggested to Netflix that I would love it if I could have the forewarning so that I could give the program a real finale rather than putting up some cliffhangers that will never pay off.” “When Netflix picked up season six, they said, ‘Hey, remember how you requested for that heads-up?’ This, we think, is your warning. As a result, I’m pleased that we got that notice.”

Now, this remark suggests that Netflix told Bob that Season 6 is the series finale, and as a consequence, he was able to properly send the program out.

In an interview when Raphael Bob-Waksberg was asked about the possibility of Bojack Horseman Season 7, he said, 

“I don’t know. I mean, I don’t want to rule anything out, but I will say, I am very happy with where we leave all the characters at the end of the show. Right now, I’m not itching to tell more stories in this universe, even though there were more stories that I would’ve been happy to tell.” “Maybe in a couple of years, I’ll be itching to get back into it. Right now I feel like there’s something nice about making a thing and that’s the thing, then going on to make other things.”

Though this doesn’t clarify the stand of Netflix for releasing Bojack Horseman Season 7, it is expected to debut in Fall 2022. BoJack Horseman Season 6 was released on October 25th, 2019, and January 31st, 2020.
