“BoJack Horseman” has been renewed for Season 3 by Netflix.

The third season of the streaming service’s animated series will consist of 12 episodes set to premiere in 2016. Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”) voices BoJack, a washed-up 90’s sitcom star who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. The voice cast also includes Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins. It was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg.

The streaming giant also unveiled the premiere dates for the fourth season of “Longmire” (Sept. 10), which was picked up by Netflix after being cancelled by A&E, as well as Aziz Ansari’s new comedy series “Master of None” (Nov. 6).

Created by Ansari and “Parks and Recreation” producer Alan Yang, “Master of None” follows the personal and professional life of Dev (Ansari), a 30-year-old actor in New York struggling to find his way in life. H. Jon Benjamin, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe, Noel Wells and Kelvin Yu also star.

Additionally, Netflix shared some details about Chelsea Handler’s upcoming film series, teased a few big projects for this fourth quarter — including Bob Odenkirk and David Cross’s four-episode sketch comedy reunion — and showed off a treasure trove of stand-up comedy specials.

“Chelsea Does” is a four-film documentary series that features Chelsea Handler exploring topics of personal fascination: marriage, racism, technology and drugs. It is directed by Oscar-nominated Eddie Schmidt (“This Film is Not Yet Rated”), executive produced by Handler and Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (“20 Feet From Stardom”). Gary Snoonian (“Chelsea Lately”) is producing.

Finally, at Tuesday’s Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour kick off, Netflix set dates for six new kids and family originals: “Dinotrux” (Aug. 14), “Puffin Rock” (Sept. 1), “Popples” (Nov.), “Care Bears and Cousins” (Dec.), “Project Mc2” (Aug. 7) and “Way Too Wonderland” (Aug. 14).
