WIRE Buzz: BoJack Horseman ending after two-part final season; Apple TV+ drops trailers

Beloved Netflix comedy/rumination on depression BoJack Horseman is coming to an end with its next season. And after Season 5, well, maybe everyone needed a break to sit and think about things.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (sadly, not The Hollywoo Reporter), creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s industry satire will end with a two-part sixth and final season, with half of the season released Oct. 25 and the second half Jan. 31, 2020. This isn’t Netflix’s call, but rather Bob-Waksberg’s creative decision to shut things down. Presumably this is also to let fans cope with the debilitating effects of its content — some of which is teased in the trailer below:

After BoJack’s success, Bob-Waksberg has helped give the world other adult-focused animated fare, like the recently canceled Tuca and Bertie and Amazon’s critically acclaimed Undone. But BoJack (Will Arnett), Todd (Aaron Paul), and Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris) will have a final chance to make their lives work when one of Netflix’s first original hits begins its end on Oct. 25.


Next, Apple TV+ has released a slew of new trailers ahead of its official launch. Some of these, like its Ghostwriter reboot and Snoopy in Space, have a genre bent. The former takes the classic Sesame Workshop series from the ‘90s (all about reading, writing, and solving mysteries with the help of a friendly ghost) and gives it a modern spin.

Check it out:

The official description makes the show sound a bit like the Jack Black Goosebumps film, as “a ghost haunts a neighborhood bookstore and starts releasing fictional characters into the real world.” But the local kids can solve this, no problem.

The latter of the shows blends the Peanuts comic character with the spacefaring antics of the streaming service’s For All Mankind. Yes, Snoopy the Dog is joining NASA. No, this doesn't mean there's a new interstellar Arrowverse coming to Apple TV+ ... yet.

See for yourself:

Who let this ex-fighter pilot take over the ISS? Actually, when phrased like that, it actually seems like Snoopy is more qualified than Charlie Brown or any of the show’s humans.

Apple TV+ launches with GhostwriterSnoopy in Space, and more on Nov. 1.
