Netflix renews 'Bojack Horseman' for season 2

Netflix has put its faith in a horse. The streaming service has renewed BoJack Horseman for a second season of 12 episodes, EW has confirmed.


What the hell is Netflix's 'BoJack Horseman'?

Glad you asked.

1. It is, according to Netflix, “darkly hilarious, irreverent, serialized, animated comedy for adults.” The words “comedy for adults” are underlined.

2. It stars Will Arnett as the title character, “the failed legendary 90’s sitcom star from the favorite family sitcom Horsin’ Around, who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships.” He is also a man with the head (and body?) of a horse.

3. It also features Aaron Paul as BoJack’s human sidekick Todd, Amy Sedaris as his agent/ex-girlfriend (she is a cat-person), and Alison Brie as another human person. READ FULL STORY

'BoJack Horseman': New Netflix comedy features voices of Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, more

He may not be performing another magic show at Gob Bluth anytime soon, but Will Arnett is returning to Netflix this summer all the same — this time in the animated adult comedy series BoJack Horseman.

Take it away, Netflix: “Will Arnett voices BoJack, the failed legendary ’90s sitcom star from the favorite family sitcom Horsin’ Around, who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. Now, in the presence of his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and his feline agent and ex-paramour Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is primed for his comeback.” Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Arnett and Paul will also serve as executive producers.

'The Millers' preview: Will Arnett busts a move for Casey Wilson in amazing GIF

Happy Endings alum Casey Wilson is heading to The Millers tonight, playing the first girl who Nathan (Will Arnett) has brought home since his mother became his roommate.

But before they head to his house, Nathan impresses Wilson’s character on the dance floor with a little help from Ray (JB Smoove). Below is an exclusive GIF preview of their moves, which I hope to use one day in a listicle about “10 signature dance moves with which to woo ladies.”

Will Arnett open to returning to 'Arrested Development'

Will Arnett may be starring in CBS’ The Millers this fall, but he’s still open to returning to Arrested Development.

“I think that for all of us, Arrested is something that we love doing and we love working together,” Arnett told EW about the series, which might return to Netflix for a fifth season. “Whatever sort of incarnation comes up, I’m very open to it.”

On The Millers, Arnett plays a recently divorced reporter whose plans for bachelorhood get sidetracked when his overbearing mother (Margo Martindale) moves in with him after separating from his father (Beau Bridges).

He’s not the only actor on the CBS sitcom willing to pull double duty: Martindale, who played Russian spy Claudia on FX’s The Americans, told reporters this morning at the Television Critics Tour in Los Angeles that she hopes to return to the role.

So how does The Millers creator Greg Garcia feel about sharing his actors?

'Arrested Development': Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Tony Hale on the Bluth brothers and new episodes

A megalomaniacal magician who makes a lot of huge mistakes. A hook-handed, shoulder-rubbing stay-at-home son who suffers from panic attacks. A well-intended, sensible yet slightly superior martyr/father who’s trying to keep his freaky family from falling apart. Together they represent the Bluth brothers, and though they don’t always see eye to eye, Gob (Will Arnett), Buster (Tony Hale), and Michael (Jason Bateman) are hermanos to the end. Now, their adventures begin anew as Arrested Development, the revered cult comedy that was cancelled by Fox in 2006, offers up 15 new episodes that will be released on Netflix tonight at the stroke of 3:01 am ET/12:01 a.m. PT. A comeback story for the digital ages? A second chance at comedy domination? A third thing? “I would call it ‘The Return of AD: Sweet Revenge; The Joke’s On Us,'” quips Arnett. Read all about this next chapter in the story of a wealthy family who lost everything and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together right here. After you’re finished, soak up these bonus quotes from Bateman, Arnett, and Hale, who discuss everything from the new season to getting back in character to action figures to onesies.

'Arrested Development': Inside the cult comedy's comeback

Arrested Development’s journey back to the screen has been long and unpredictable. It has taken many turns, involved the use of many birds. And on this December evening, it has banked a hard right onto a ­Hollywood side street and pit-stopped in a magic club on gay night.

Inside the gothic lounge of mystery, patrons in leopard vests, Army fatigues, and assless pants groove about. Near the bar, series creator Mitchell Hurwitz studies Will Arnett and Michael Cera as they rehearse a scene that will play out in multiple episodes: Decked out in leather and chains, Arnett’s sleazy-cheesy illusionist Gob Bluth has lured his innocent-faced nephew, George Michael (Cera), here under false pretenses (naturally). He busts a move on a flustered George Michael and shouts, “Ow! You bit my lip!” before apologetically whispering to him: “Hey, thanks a lot. I owe you big-time. Not a lot of nephews would do this.” Loud, so the crowd can hear: “Now get out of here! I never want to sleep with you again!” Whispering: “I do. I would sleep with you, George Michael… I mean, I probably won’t…”

In between takes, Hurwitz offers ­scientific pointers like “When you say ‘hot little ass,’ put your hand here,” then scoots behind the monitors to survey the action. “This may be the creepiest thing we’ve done so far,” he observes.

With take after absurd take under his leather-daddy belt, Arnett catches a breather. “I did some disturbing things tonight,” he says. “I kissed Michael Cera no fewer than eight times.”

And how was it?

“It felt like… coming home.”

After an absence of seven years, three months, and 16 days, Arrested Development will give fans who prayed for its return the mother(boy) of all gifts on May 26: Fifteen new episodes will be released all at once on Netflix. Designed as a prequel for a not-yet-greenlit movie, these installments have been the source of great anticipation and speculation since Net­flix announced the show’s resurrection 17 months ago. Our hearts and minds and Twitter feeds are about to tell us whether the wait for this moment of Bluth was indeed worth it. READ FULL STORY

CBS' Fall Schedule: A Snap Judgment

Who says CBS doesn’t make bold programming moves? Oh, that’s right: Everyone. But everyone would be slightly wrong! At yesterday’s upfront presentation, the nation’s most-watched — if least-interesting — broadcast television network surprised reporters by revealing that it was not green-lighting two high-profile potential series: A small screen revival of Beverly Hills Cop from executive producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield) starring Brandon T. Jackson as the son of Axel Foley and a recurring Eddie Murphy; and NCIS: Red, starring John Corbett and Kim Raver. Beverly Hills Cop might find a home elsewhere, while NCIS: Red was deemed unworthy of the franchise’s creative standards. (Why are you giggling?)

CBS also made news with some bold scheduling swaps and shifts. Mike & Molly is being held for midseason (but received a full order of 22 episodes); Hawaii 5-0 is sailing to Friday; and Person of Interest is relocating to Tuesday, joining NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles to form a blockbuster night of brawny drama. Thursday now has two hours of comedy, a mirror to its Monday night block of powerhouse yukkers. With few holes to fill and (quoting network president Nina Tassler) “limited shelf space,” CBS ordered just eight new shows, five of which will premiere this fall. Here, CBS was true to form: All have potential to be watched by a broad audience, and very few seem all that creatively daring. To be fair, it’s hard to glean meaningful insight from the preview videos released by the network, comprised of select scenes, behind the scenes footage, and rah-rah interviews with actors and producers. And while CBS may not have leveraged its position of great strength to take a chance on innovation, I found something commendable about each of its new offerings. READ FULL STORY

'Arrested Development' cast and creator talk new episodes, unspool deleted scene at TCA panel

The cast of Arrested Development enjoyed another reunion today, this time in front of a room of critics and reporters at the TCA press tour in Pasadena. The Q&A session — which featured creator/executive producer Mitchell Hurwitz along with series stars Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Michael Cera, Jessica Walter, Alia Shawkat, and Jeffrey Tambor (David Cross and Tony Hale couldn’t make it) — was rather light on plot detail for the resurrected show, but there were revelations, laughs, and even a peek at a delightful deleted moment. Among the highlights: READ FULL STORY

'Up All Night': Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph get physical over a blouse -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Up All Night returns in less than a week for a second season. But what isn’t returning? The daytime talk show hosted by Ava (Maya Rudolph) and produced by Reagan (Christina Applegate). Don’t worry, Ava winds up with a new gig at Today, though Reagan most definitely does not approve of her wardrobe. Who will triumph in a very handsy fight over the blouse? No need to sit around in anticipation/ignorance: EW has a sneak peak of that scene from the NBC comedy’s season premiere (Sept. 20, 8:30 p.m.), which will also see Reagan become the stay-at-home parent while Chris (Will Arnett) takes on a construction job. Simply press play and enjoy. No hard hats required. READ FULL STORY
