‘BoJack Horseman’ Renewed for Season 3 as Netflix Sets Aziz Ansari Premiere
The madness of TCA’s ongoing press tour has begun, and with Netflix first out of the gate, it’s only fitting that horse be their main event. Not only has BoJack Horseman officially (and deservedly) been renewed for Season 3, so too do we know the title and premiere of Aziz Ansari’s new show, and the rescued fourth season of Longmire.
Per Netflix’s official announcement, BoJack will return for 12 new episodes at an unspecified date in 2016, while Aziz Ansari’s new series has a title, synopsis and premiere of November 6:
Master of None - Friday, November 6, 2015
Based on the comedic viewpoints of Aziz Ansari, the show follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Aziz 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. Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, Dev’s story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner. Ansari stars in and created the series with Alan Yang; both serve as executive producers alongside Mike Schur (Parks and Recreation), Dave Becky (Louie) and David Miner (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). The series also stars H. Jon Benjamin, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Noel Wells and Kelvin Yu and is produced by Universal TV and 3 Arts for Netflix.
Sooner than that, we’ll have the fourth season of Longmire:
Longmire - Thursday, September 10, 2015 (available in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand)
Based on the novels by bestselling author Craig Johnson, the fourth season premiere of Longmire picks up moments after season three’s exciting finale. Walt Longmire (series star 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 who 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. The 10-episode fourth season stars Taylor, along with Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, Riddick), Lou Diamond Phillips (Southland, La Bamba), Bailey Chase (Damages), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville) and Adam Bartley (Justified). Gerald McRaney (House of Cards) and Ally Walker (Sons of Anarchy) guest star in the upcoming season.
We’ll keep our eyes and ears plugged to Netflix, but what should we make of their latest run of premieres? Was BoJack worth a third run? Spoiler: absolutely.
