Good news, BoJack Horseman fans! The most depressing comedy on television finally has a return date for its fourth season. The show’s Twitter account broke the news Monday via an animation of a cartoon hand blocking the sun as he stares across the southern California desert to see a skywriting above him which says: “All new episodes September 8.”

Netflix’s confirmation comes almost a year after it announced in a typical BoJack fashion on Twitter July last year that the dramedy has been renewed.

First debuted in 2014, Bojack Horseman was then a pioneering effort for Netflix’s original programming and its first major adult-focused animated series effort. Web comic artist Lisa Hanawalt designed the show, featuring a terrific blend of seriousness and absurd humor with a terrific voiceover cast.

It follows an actor who happens to be a talking horse as he struggles to regain his glory on Hollywood. The series experienced a breakthrough on its third run, thanks largely to its standout episode “Fish Out of Water,” which was widely considered one of the best episodes of television in 2016.

What To Expect From The  New Season

Details about BoJack Horseman Season 4 are sparse. We do not know for sure how dark it can get than last year’s penultimate episode, which saw the death of a key supporting character, for which BoJack was partially responsible. But if we learned a thing from the past seasons, it will likely keep its tricky balancing act, featuring a half-downer, half-hilarious plot.

If showrunner Raphael Bob-Waksberg‘s previous statement is anything to go by, the new episodes could also take a political turn. As reported earlier, some of the episodes were written during the election so it may have an influence on how BoJack’s story would continue.

Regardless, we can expect it’ll show things the finale has set up for Season 4, including how Princess Carolan would deal with relaunching her agency as a manager, Todd coming to terms with his asexuality, Mr. Peanutbutter potentially running for the Governor of California, and – most intriguingly – just who the teenage girl trying to get in contact with BoJack was.

There’s no trailer yet, but we’ll likely get one anytime soon.
