Netflix Renews BoJack Horseman, Sets Longmire Premiere
Netflix kicked off the 2015 Television Critics Association Tour with a morning packed with announcements, from renewals and premiere dates to new originals heading to the Internet TV network.
Critically-acclaimed animated comedy BoJack Horseman has been renewed for a third season, with 12 new episodes slated to drop in 2016.
After being canceled by A&E and rescued by Netflix, fan favorite drama Longmire will premiere its fourth season on September 10. The 10-episode season picks up immediately after the events of Season 3's finale. Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor), having found out who was behind the murder of his wife, succumbs to his darker impulses and takes off in pursuit of the killer with murder on his mind. Meanwhile, Branch Connally (Bailey Chase), the deputy Walt fired for erratic, violent behavior, believes he has already figured out who the real culprit is. But during his confrontation with this suspected killer, a gun goes off. Now the audience will finally learn what happened, and whether Walt can be stopped before he makes a fatal choice.
Aziz Ansari is heading to the streaming service with Master of None, a new comedy from Parks and Recreation scribes Mike Schur and Alan Yang that follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. The entire first season will be made available on November 6.
Stand-up comedy is still a priority for Netflix with six new original comedy specials slated for 2015. Demitri Martin's Live (At the Time) will premiere August 14, Anjelah Johnson's Not Fancy on October 2, Anthony Jeselnik's Thoughts and Prayers on October 16, John Mulaney's The Comeback Kid on November 13, Brent Morin's self-titled special on December 1 and Mike Epps' After Dark on December 18.
Netflix also announced a new original documentary, Keith Richards: Under the Influence, from director Morgan Neville. The film premieres on September 18 and will explore the sounds and influences of the iconic Rolling Stones guitarist.
