Though the show may look silly on the surface, fans of BoJack Horseman will know that the show is one hell of a cathartic romp. Now Amazon has asked the show’s creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg to make what I assume is another incredibly depressing show for their streaming service.
Deadline reports that Bob-Waksberg’s new series for Amazon is titled Undone, and it will focus on the story of a young girl named Alma who seemingly gains time powers after a near-fatal car accident. She will then use her powers to delve into her past and try to save herself through personal tragedies.
With BoJack constantly exploring the dark (and mostly depressing) history of its characters, I have no doubt that Undone will be somewhat the same. I’m not complaining either. For a show about talking animals in Hollywood, BoJack Horseman manages to pull out an existential drama that can top every serious drama series out now.
Writer-producer of the show, Kate Purdy, had this to say about Undone:
“We are grateful to Amazon Studios for the opportunity to tell Alma’s story and follow her as she seeks to find a deeper meaning to her existence.”
The series also seems to be embracing a different art-style from Horseman, getting influence from artist Hisko Hulsing. Bob-Waksberg explains:
“Hisko’s beautiful artwork and masterful use of light and color will create a look never seen before on a television show that will make audiences lose their minds.”
BoJack Horseman is probably one of the best shows on Netflix now, and based on how much I love that show, I can’t wait what Undone has to bring to the table.
No official release date has been announced for Amazon’s Undone, but it’ said to be aiming for a 2019 release date.
