Only barely emerging from the BoJack Season 4-induced hole, we have been granted with exciting news: the show has been renewed for Season 5 on Netflix.

Netflix announced Thursday the animated comedy would return for another season, giving viewers an opportunity to live in a self-shaming spiral of perpetuating self-destructive behavior for another year.

Season four of BoJack Horseman took a deep dive into family dynamics and generational trauma while maintaining its consistent sight gags and brilliant parody. It also goes down as having one of the best satires of gun control legislation any television show has ever done (we won't spoil it here, but let's just say for once sexism led to something positive).

Who knows where Season 5 will take us, but it'll hopefully it will be as loopy and pathos-inducing as ever.

BoJack Horseman was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and is art directed by Lisa Hanawalt. It stars Will Arnett as BoJack, Amy Sedaris as Princess Carolyn, Paul F. Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter, Aaron Paul as Todd Chavez, and Alison Brie as Diane Nguyen.
