Netflix’s animated tragicomedy about the titular washed-up ‘90s sitcom star
voiced by Will Arnett
, is back with a brand-new season.
Debuting on Friday, July 22, season three sees BoJack

BoJack is a really good actor.
Joining this season is Angela Bassett, who voices "Oscar Whisperer" publicist Ana Spanikopita. She’s among the many A-list and funny
guest stars -- Daniel Radcliffe
, Paul McCartney, Keegan-Michael Key and Lisa
, among others -- that have become a secret ingredient of the show’s
success, as BoJack Horseman
