In the episode, the eponymous character, BoJack Horseman, gets caught and sentenced to prison for breaking and entering, but he is granted a leave of absence to attend his ex-girlfriend, Princess Carolyn's, wedding. The episode was universally regarded as a fitting conclusion to the series. After serving his sentence, BoJack tries to return to his life in Los Angeles, but it isn't easy -- especially since many people now believe him to be a criminal.
Here's how the British newspaper The Guardian described the ending of the series: "Witty, sad and wonderfully animated, this finale showed that even though you're going to prison, there's still hope for a second chance."
The show was created by American animator Todd Berger, who also wrote most of the episodes with help from others including Adam Muto. It originally aired from December 6, 2014 to January 20, 2016 on Netflix. It has been praised for its writing and animation but criticized for its dark tone. The first season consists of eight episodes while the second season has only six episodes.
Berger had already written several other TV shows before coming up with BoJack Horseman. Including Dr. Katz, MD, which was canceled after one season by NBC. He then went on to write for other shows like Archer and Ben 10 before creating BoJack Horseman.
While the season finale of BoJack Horseman was poignant, it did not offer the show's hero a typical happy ending—which is really a good thing. In the episode, he adjusts to jail life and even participates in extracurricular activities. But the real story begins when the episode ends and the credits roll: BoJack has been hired by Mr. Peanutbutter as his new assistant.
Mr. Peanutbutter is one of the main characters on BoJack Horseman. He's a wealthy horse owner who lives in Los Angeles with his family. They have a lot of fun together as they go about their daily lives: visiting museums, eating at restaurants, etc. The series focuses more on Mr. Peanutbutter than any other character, so it's no surprise that he provides many moments of comedy throughout its six-year run.
In addition to being BoJack Horseman's boss, Mr. Peanutbutter is also his mentor. When we first meet him, he's teaching BoJack how to drink wine, which leads to them developing a friendship. Later on in the series, Mr. Peanutbutter becomes involved in some complicated situations himself, such as trying to save his marriage or hiring a prostitute. However, he always manages to come out on top.

Trivia. Although "The Horse" from BoJack Horseman died in Horsin' Around, he appeared to be healthy and living in Ethan Around. According to Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the program is a spoof of Fuller House, the Full House relaunch, as well as Girl Meets World, a spinoff of Boy Meets World, and is a parody of both programs.
Ethan Around is a character in the animated series BoJack Horseman. He first appears in the episode "Horse Play", which first aired on August 10, 2014. He also has an appearance in the episode "I'm With Stupid". BoJack meets Ethan when he accidentally breaks into his apartment while looking for food. The two form a friendship and BoJack lets him stay with him until he can get back on his feet. It's also revealed that BoJack had been sleeping outside until he met Ethan.
He then reappears in the episode "I'm With Stupid", where it is revealed that BoJack had been staying with Ethan during periods of homelessness. It is also hinted that BoJack may have killed someone during one of these periods of homelessness (although this isn't confirmed). After hearing about this death, Diane forces BoJack to go to rehab because she doesn't want him to end up like Mr. Peanut but eventually gives him her blessing to continue living with Ethan if he gets help.
Ethan makes several appearances throughout the rest of the series and even has his own spin-off series called Toddlewood.
BoJack Horseman was born in San Francisco, California on January 2, 1964. In the late 1980s, he appeared in a successful family sitcom called "Horsin' Around," and subsequently, The BoJack Horseman Show, an edgier, less successful sitcom that was cancelled after one season in 2007. After the show ended, BoJack went into self-imposed retirement, but then decided to play video games, work out, have adventures, and generally be as busy as ever before.
After the death of his wife, Princess Carolyn, in season three, BoJack became addicted to drugs and started drinking again too. He spent most of season four in rehab or prison, except for one episode where it is revealed that he has been living with his former friend and rival, Todd Chavez, who is also addicted to drugs. In season five, BoJack tries to get clean and stop using drugs, but keeps failing. At the end of the season, he decides to move to Los Angeles, buy a house, and start fresh. There's still hope for BoJack!
In season six, BoJack meets another former friend and rival, Diane Nguyen, who now works at Mr. Peanutbutter's pet store. They both continue to struggle with addiction and fall back into bad habits.
The ninth episode of the second season of the American animated television series "BoJack Horseman" is titled "The Shot." In his final performance on the show, John Krasinski lends his voice. Before he passed away in January 2017 at the age of 42, he had already worked on several episodes as a guest star.
Krasinski played multiple characters in the episode including an old friend of BoJack's who tries to get him back into acting and a younger version of himself who tries to convince himself not to quit acting. The episode was written by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and directed by Steven Dean Moore. It originally aired on May 5, 2012.
Here are other notable appearances by John Krasinski:
In October 2009, it was announced that Krasinski had been cast in the lead role of Aaron Paul's character from "Breaking Bad", which required him to leave "BoJack" early so he could start shooting the series' fifth season immediately. He said about leaving BoJack: "I feel like I left something behind, but at the same time, something new started up."
Krasinski has also appeared in several films including 2011's "The Office: Season One" and 2013's "A Quiet Place".
There is evidence to suggest that BoJack died in that pool, as the opening titles suggest, and that the series finale is a purgatory in which he makes peace with his living loved ones as he did with his deceased, while the last sparks of his brain flicker into darkness. However, this has not been confirmed by NBC.
If true, then it would appear that BoJack came very close to achieving eternal happiness, but was prevented from doing so by the intervention of Ms. Peanutbutter. This would seem to imply that although humanity as a whole is inherently good, there are elements within it that are fully evil (i.e., Equestria's villains).
Furthermore, since BoJack met all of his beloved animals before he died, it can be inferred that they too will join him in paradise. This includes Princess Ponytail, who was revealed in a later episode to have died during the events of "Something Big".
Finally, since Mr. Peanutbutter states in "A Bird in the Holograph" that everyone sees themselves at least once in another life, it can be assumed that BoJack will get to meet himself again one day. He even says as much when discussing his own death with Jack Nicholson's character.
Thus, despite everything that happened in the series, it seems that BoJack Horseman ended up with a happy ending after all.
