Netflix's animated series about the nightmares of growing up is coming back with more seasons.
Big Mouth' Season 4 finally dropped on Netflix, but if you have already devoured all ten episodes, then it is time to start thinking about the show's future seasons again.
The adult animated coming-of-age sitcom explores puberty and frankly approaches topics about the human body and sex.
After 4 successful seasons and a couple of accolades, let's find out what is next for 'Big Mouth.'
Big YES! The show is coming back for season 5... and more! Netflix renewed the animated series through Season 6, and creator Nick Kroll has already started working for the upcoming season.
"Big Mouth writer’s room has been at full throttle," he said to the rest of the cast and crew during an online table read in March 2020. "I’ve seen you over Zoom every day for the past two weeks.”
Additionally, a recent article from the New York Times confirmed that Kroll and his team are already working on season 5, even before the pandemic.
"A few days earlier, they had been dispatched on research assignments, each tackling a different topic — cystic acne, female friendship, revenge porn — to see whether it might qualify as a theme for Season 5. They had taken turns presenting their findings to the group; the research was now absorbed and being transformed into story lines."
Based on the time gap between previous seasons, season 5 will likely come 14 months since the release of season 4.
There were long gaps between each season. Season 1 premiered on September 29, 2017, Season 2 released on October 5, 2018, and Season 3 arrived on Netflix on October 4, 2019. Season 4 was delayed due to the coronavirus and was released on December 4, 2020. We're guessing season 5 will arrive by the first quarter of 2022.
We will update this page once we get more information.
According to the same New York Times article, season 5 will have 10 episodes, just like in the past seasons (except season 3).
"The numbers one through 10, for the season’s 10 episodes, were written on a whiteboard, and under the numbers were plot points on colored index cards," the article said.
There were major changes in the lives of our characters by the end of season 4. Jessi returned to Westchester to live with her dad, while Nick confronted his evil future-self and won. On the other hand, Missy discovered her true identity, signified by the change of the voice-acting role from Jenny Slate to Ayo Edebiri.
Each season of 'Big Mouth' also digs in on certain emotions. Season 2 emphasized shame, while Season 4 brought the Anxiety Mosquito along with the Gratitoad. We don't know what emotions will be highlighted in season 5 yet, but the Times article seems to indicate that season 5 will talk about trauma.
"Conversation veered from Large Questions (Why does trauma affect people differently? How do you know if your father loves you?) to minor tangents (meatball subs; something called Big Nipple Energy)."
We are expecting our major cast members to return to voice different characters. They are Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Jordan Peele, Andrew Rannells, Richard Kind, and more.
We had additional voice actors in season 4 who might also come back for season 5. They are Maria Bamford as the Anxiety Mosquito, Zach Galifinakis as the Gratitoad, and Seth Rogen as Nick's friend from camp.
Last but not the least, we are expecting Ayo Edebiri to return after taking over the role of Missy in the final two episodes of Season 4.
There's no official trailer yet. However, since we know that the next two seasons are already approved, we can rest assured it will be here in the upcoming months. Just in case you haven't seen 'Big Mouth' season 4 yet, we're dropping its official trailer for you in the meantime.
