Netflix Renews 'BoJack Horseman'; Sets Premiere Dates for 'Longmire' & 'Masters of None'

During his executive session that kicked off the summer Television Critics Association panel, Ted Sarandos, the Chief Content Officer at Netflix, announced a third season renewal for BoJack Horseman and premiere dates for upcoming shows Longmire and Master of None.

Longmire will return for its fourth season - its first season on Netflix, after airing its first three on A&E - on Thursday, September 10.

The 10-episode fourth season stars Robert Taylor, Katee Sackhoff, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase, Cassidy Freeman and Adam Bartley. Gerald McRaney and Ally Walker will guest star. Longmire is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Horizon Television. Hunt Baldwin, John Coveny, Greer Shephard and Michael M. Robin serve as executive producers.

New comedy Master of None (previously Untitled Aziz Ansari Project) will make its series debut on Friday, November 6.

Based on the comedic viewpoints of Ansari, the show follows the personal and professional lives of Dev (Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. Ambitious, funny, cinematic and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, Dev's story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner.

Ansari created the series with Alan Yang. Both serve as executive producers with Mike Schur, Dave Becky and David Miner. The cast also includes H. Jon Benjamin, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Noel Wells and Kelvin Yu. Universal Television and 3 Arts Entertainment produce.

The third season of hit animated comedy BoJack Horseman will debut in 2016 with 12 new episodes. The voice cast includes Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins. Raphael Bob-Waksberg created the series, and executive produces with Steven A. Cohen, Noel Bright, Will Arnett and Aaron Paul.

Netflix has also announced that the following projects will debut in the 4th quarter of 2015: sketch comedy series With Bob and David starring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross; Jessica Jones starring Krysten Ritter and David Tennant; the third and final season of Hemlock Grove; and animated comedy F Is For Family starring Bill Burr, Laura Dern and Justin Long. Exact dates will be announced later.
