After a beloved five previous seasons, animated comedy, BoJack Horseman is coming to a close. This was a massive shock to those who were observant of Netflix’s viewership. Season 5 was one of their highest-rated shows. The sad news was announced Friday on Twitter by the official BoJack Twitter.

This led to executive producer and voice actor Aaron Paul to respond in his own tweet. In the tweet, he said goodbye to BoJack. While many swept the decision to end the series as a creative difference, this didn’t seem to be a mutual decision.
One response got the attention of Paul’s Twitter. It was a post urging them to not end the series, naturally. Ending the series, however, seemed to be a Netflix decision.
We had a wonderful time making Bojack. Couldn’t be more proud. Fell in love with these characters just like everyone else did but sadly Netflix thought it was time to close the curtains and so here we are. They gave us a home for 6 beautiful years. Nothing we could do about it.

Netflix has somewhat earned a title of bringing in shows that weren’t initially theirs. They did this their reboot of Full House, Fuller House. They also picked up Lucifer as well. But, in the past few months, they’ve dropped or finished a fair share of series.
Aaron Paul and series creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg is not going to be out of work, though. Paul is reprising his role as Jesse Pinkman in El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. Meanwhile, the series creator is working on the animated Amazon series Undone.
The future looks grim for this old horse, but let’s hope this two-part final season is one to remember. Clear your schedules on October 25 and January 31.
