The series has never strayed from addressing issues related to mental illness. The show’s first episode features BoJack, voiced by Will Arnett, going to the hospital for a panic attack. The show also highlights depression, anxiety, addiction and parental abuse.

In a previous article on The Mighty about TV shows people with mental illness relate to, BoJack Horseman was one of them.

“It’s one of the most accurate depictions of depression and disassociation I’ve ever seen,” Ashley M. said.

And it’s not just The Mighty’s community who finds “BoJack Horseman” relatable. The show has built a large following due to its “accurate” portrayal of mental illness.

An airdate for season five has yet to be announced, but you can watch seasons one through four of “BoJack Horseman” now on Netflix.
