Netflix has picked up another season of its show starring America’s favorite depressive equine actor.

“BoJack Horseman” will return for a fifth season in 2018, Netflix announced Tuesday via this series of (fake) texts from a “clingy netflix exec” to BoJack:

The pickup comes just two weeks after Season 4 debuted on Sept. 8. Netflix doesn’t release viewing figures for its shows. As has been the case with the previous two seasons, “BoJack” has won near-universal acclaim from critics for the current run.

The series stars Will Arnett as the title character, the star of a beloved 1990s sitcom called “Horsin’ Around” who’s fallen on hard times. The voice cast also includes Aaron Paul (he and Arnett are also among the show’s executive producers), Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter, who in Season 4 is launching a campaign for governor.

Raphael-Bob Waksberg created the series.

There’s no word yet on when in 2018 “BoJack Horseman” will debut.
