Nowadays numbers are ruling the roost. A show like BoJack Horseman needs a breather to delve deeper into the darkness of a character and rebooting it for season 7 is a wonderful idea to allow the same.
Why Netflix must reboot BoJack Horseman for season 7?
End of BoJack Horseman after season 6 marked the end of an era for Netflix. Once upon a time, Netflix took the risk on original shows like BoJack Horseman. It was the platform’s continued trust that the series ended up creating something that even the writer Bob-Waksberg hadn’t originally imagined.
Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards and BoJack Horseman defines the idea of Netflix. Each of the critically acclaimed series had to go through a rough patch in pitching the idea before Netflix grabbed them and gave them enough time to set in.
Netflix’s bet paid off. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings once named BoJack Horseman his favourite show. Then, in 2019, Netflix ordered a final season for BoJack Horseman. It wasn’t Bob’s choice to end the series, though he respected Netflix’s decision.
He feels that the Netflix when he joined is entirely different from the Netflix today. It’s uncertain that if BoJack Horseman had premiered today, it would get a second season to prove itself when all that matters is the numbers.
Netflix has every chance to change its mind and reboot BoJack Horseman for season 7 to gain the lost respect for the platform.
Is Netflix considering the reboot of BoJack Horseman for season 7?
BoJack is by any measure, the greatest TV series on Netflix. It ended with season 6 with BoJack and Diane sitting on a rooftop and having a conversation that is hilarious at first but takes an awkward turn and ultimately ending with deafening silence. BoJack could have ended with the penultimate episode where BoJack died in a pool his living in the finale episode is a reminder no matter what we are still capable of making a better world together. The question is whether Netflix ever reboots BoJack Horseman for season 7.
BoJack’s relationships with all the important people in his life ended on a subtly okay note. It could have been disastrous that the penultimate episode hinted. But the end seems perfect, even though the hunger for the next season persists.
The writer Bob-Waksberg and the voiceover crew were visibly upset when Netflix decided to call it a day with season 6 and not return for season 7. There is a lot to be explored in the light of personal and interpersonal struggles and according to Bob,
“[BoJack] was not a show that set the world on fire. This is not Friends, but it’s a show that’s connected with people. And every time I meet someone who says, you know, your show meant something to me, your show changed the way I see myself. Your show helped me articulate a feeling that I had that I was never able to identify. I think, like, wow, we did it, you know, which is — it’s tremendously encouraging.”
It is hard to write just as it is hard for you to read that Netflix hasn’t given a nod to BoJack Horseman season 7 yet. Netflix might change its mind in the long run if the fans like you who explored their hidden emotions pitch their demand for the seventh season of BoJack on high decibels.
Will BoJack turn his life around in BoJack Horseman season 7?
The interesting question is- will BoJack get a chance to redeem himself and start his life afresh? If Netflix gives a thumbs up to season 7, what will happen in BoJack’s life when he comes out from jail?
The show might have ended but there is a void as if it is not over for BoJack. He is despicable but has been loved over and over again by his folks. Will they give him another chance in their lives?
All these questions need answers that can only happen when Netflix changes its stance on BoJack Horseman and reboot the series with season 7. Even if they do it, they should not announce the reboot soon. In fact, BoJack should linger in our memories and make a comeback some years later.
