    It now has four seasons and almost 50, that's certainly more than a lot of other shows that have been syndicated on Adult Swim.

    Content wise and as a series? Sure. It would fit in like a glove on AS.

    Turner actually being able too though? I sincerely doubt it. Unlike some other series mentioned on the forums Bojack Horseman actually is one of Netflix's flagship series for the platform, and I doubt they'd be willing to share it so easily.

    TBS maybe has a better chance of snagging the syndication rights, but again this doesn't seem too likely.

    Bojack Horseman has too much continuity for it to be aired on Adult Swim so I doubt As would want to air it as much as say FG or AD

    Has there ever been an instance of a Netflix-exclusive show moving to TV for syndication?

    That would be a good addition to AS, though the odds aren't really favorable.

    Uh... you do know Adult Swim airs the Venture Brothers (now with Aqua Teen Hunger Force finished the oldest still ongoing adult swim show) which is also a series filled with continuity and major call backs right? Hell even stuff like Frisky Dingo or even 12 Oz Mouse had continuity and callbacks to them. So I don't see why Bojack Horsemen wouldn't fit in that regard. It wouldn't be a Family Guy or King of the Hill or American Dad constant runner but not every AS show is like a FOX show, and for good reason.

    Honestly as others say there are issues regarding whether or not AS would be even able to legally acquire it. As yeah SuperMansion aired on Adult Swim but there's a difference between Netflix and Crackle in online streaming service and Supermansion was co-created by Matthew Senreich of Robot Chicken fame. Plus there is a slight edge to Netflix shows that even Adult Swim shows don't have yet. I mean AS shows can't let loose even once a season an official f-bomb and those are kind of an important part of Bojack Horsemen that would loose the luster of some scenes if bleeped.

    Seeing those T Mobile Ads featuring stuff from Netflix's library and they don't show BoJack Horseman so I wouldn't call this a flagship show.

    Dreamworks shows made for Netflix are airing on Universal Kids, not to mention on the Dreamworks Channel in various markets.
