Despite landing a cushy gig on a huge new TV show, BoJack Horseman‘s titular horse-man is seemingly more depressed than ever in the just-released trailer for the Netflix comedy’s upcoming fifth season, premiering Friday, Sept. 14.
When he’s not filming Philbert, a new crime drama series, BoJack is seen hitting the bottle — hard — and brushing off countless offers for help from Princess Caroline, Diane (now rocking a pixie cut!) and even his own family. Additional trailer highlights include: Princess Caroline cozying up to a new
man fox, Todd attempting to un-complicate his life, and Mr. Peanutbutter being… well… Mr. Peanutbutter. (And what’s up with that mysterious explosion in the sky?)
