Possibly one of the best shows in recent times, the animated comedy-drama, BoJack Horseman officially ended with it sixth and final season recently as the final installment of episodes was released on 31st January 2020.
Arnett, who voiced the washed-up Hollywoo star BoJack since the show’s debut in 2014, tells Variety: “It’s bittersweet. I feel satisfied with what we did. [Creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg] is an incredible writer and I feel fortunate I got to be a part of something like that, and ride his coattails a bit.”
The actor, who was at the BBC Showcase in Liverpool to promote his new BBC comedy The First Team with The Conners producer Tom Werner, adds that he’s “very happy with the way fans have reacted to (the ‘BoJack’ finale) and how the audience has grown.”
However, the Arrested Development and Riviera actor admits it’s still “hard to say goodbye.”
“Last week, we had a little screening in L.A. and Raphael, [Paul F. Tompkins] and [Aaron Paul] and I were talking. We were like, ‘What (else) can we do?’ We’re always doing that because it’s hard to let go,” he says.
“You do so many things over the course of your life and (when) you realize you’re part of something that’s really quite special, it’s important to take a moment to recognize it. It’s been a cool, weird time.” However, Arnett seems to have, for the moment, made peace with the show’s terminus and has a slate of other projects on the go.
Elsewhere, Arnett will again voice a series for a streamer, taking on the lead role in a new animated daily horoscope show for Quibi, which he is making alongside Werner.
“There’s been nothing like it before; it’s very unique,” says the actor of the as-yet-untitled show. “Different days will be focused on horoscopes for that day, but (told) in a funny, irreverent way. It’s not to the point where it’s inauthentic, but a fun way to digest that information.”
