Big Mouth - Season 2
Netflix continues to keep its viewership numbers behind closed doors, but Big Mouth maintained positive critical reviews across its first two seasons. Season 2 premiered on October 5, so with a renewal coming just over a month later, enough people seem hooked on this no-shame approach to puberty humor.
Big Mouth - Season 2
Netflix tonight announced that it has renewed its animated series Big Mouth for a seventh season, and will bring back its spinoff Human Resources for a second. The former series will be back with new episodes later this year.

We also spoke with the cast of Big Mouth about how the show is having an effect on both parents and teens. Co-creators Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg spoke with us about creating the second season.
There's no shortage of excellent adult-oriented animation out there, and Netflix has certainly capitalized on that trend with striking results. With a smart and technically-intricate show like the recently renewed BoJack Horseman bolstering the service's catalog, Netflix recently doubled down on its high-quality animation with the release of Big Mouth. Fans seem to have responded quite positively to the show's first season, and it looks like Netflix is keen to return to that well for a second.
On that note, Netflix has officially announced its decision to move forward with the second season of Big Mouth. The puberty-focused animated sitcom centering on a group of adolescent kids in the New York suburbs has generally received a warm welcome from critics (including CinemaBlend, you can check out our review to read for yourself) for its insanely vulgar, yet still heartwarming and relatable storylines. Of course, Big Mouth has not been without its own fair share of controversy in recent months, as some have leveled criticisms against it for the sexualization of child characters, but, overall, Netflix appears to have enough faith in the material (and the folks behind the material) to keep these stories going for at least another season.
The announcement of yet another Big Mouth season specifically feels like a major win for Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. Following the cancellation of Kroll Show on Comedy Central, the two brought their fan-favorite characters, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland, to the Broadway stage for The Oh, Hello Show. Netflix's broadcast of the stage production has become one of the streaming platform's best (and weirdest) pieces of comedic content, and Big Mouth seems to have reaffirmed the notion that Mulaney and Kroll are a strong partnership to provide vulgar content on a less-restrictive streaming platform.
Big Mouth returned to Netflix for its second season, continuing the story of a group of adolescent kids going through puberty in the grossest way possible. Co-created by long-time friends and collaborators Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, Big Mouth is inspired by the pair's pre-teen years growing up in Westchester County, New York. While the leading pair of Nick and Andrew are heavily inspired by their own lives, Big Mouth is a far more surreal and crude interpretation of one's teen years, with puberty depicted as a literal monster. Add to that talking pillows, conversing pubic hairs and the ghost of Duke Ellington and Big Mouth is definitely not adolescence as you remember it.
In season two, the boys of 5th grade navigate their tempestuous hormones as well as a new burgeoning obsession with breasts while the girls tackle body image issues, slut-shaming and boys' sudden interest in them. As the kids grow up and face the troubles of the big bad world, they take on that age old question: Can you be both horny and a decent person?
Jessi Klein as Jessi Glaser: Jessi is a tomboy whose burgeoning puberty collides with the break-up of her parents to create immense emotional strife. In season 1, she got her first period while on a class trip and was quickly paired up with her own hormone monster. In season 2, her parents' divorce spurs her onto acting out, becoming a shoplifter and find new ways to deal with her male classmates' sudden fascination with breasts. Jessi Klein is a comedy writer who has worked on Saturday Night Live and Inside Amy Schumer, which she also appeared on.
Maya Rudolph as Connie the Hormone Mistress: The gender-swapped counterpoint to Maurice, Connie is the lascivious hormone monster who rules Jessi's adolescence. Where Maurice has a one track mind, Connie is more concerned with letting Jessi's emotional state run haywire, encouraging her to verbally abuse her mother and engage in casual theft. Maya Rudolph, the voice of Connie, was a Saturday Night Live cast member for seven seasons. She can currently be seen on NBC's The Good Place, playing Judge Hydrogen, and on Amazon's Forever.
Big Mouth debuted on September 29, 2017, and received widespread critical acclaim. The half-hour adult animation follows real-life best friends Nick (Kroll) and Andrew (John Mulaney) as they deal with the glorious nightmare that is teenage puberty. A fifth season was released on November 5, 2021, with Season 6 set to premiere later this year.
The spinoff series Human Resources debuted on March 18, 2022, and also received high praise from critics. It is a workplace comedy revolving around the monsters from Big Mouth, in which the monsters help humans journey through every aspect of life, from puberty to parenthood to the twilight years. There is no word yet on when the second season will premiere.
Big Mouth has been an outstanding success, with fans craving more. Having just released its sixth season, Big Mouth continues to push the envelope in rambunctious, explicit wackiness and has a strong resemblance to Adult Swim classics such as Home Movies. Big Mouth is a series that delivers something new with every episode and keeps fans engaged with its unpredictable scenarios and outlandish musical numbers. Each season shines in its own way, but some more than others.
Things take a turn for the worse for the entire cast as emotional trauma and toxic conflicts envelope the entire season. Both children and parents fight to hold on to what little sanity they have left but are met with setback after setback no matter how hard they try to do the right thing.
Nick is faced with putting his foot in his mouth at every avenue and must overcome his selfishness. Andrew is tested as he is led astray by his maturing cousin and becomes looked down on by his family. In addition to this, the show receives a brand-new character, Ali, who shakes up the entire school with her energetic attitude and her identification as pansexual.
Stock up on pimple cream and schedule a few extra sessions with your therapist, because Big Mouth is returning for season two this Fall. The critically acclaimed and deeply inappropriate animated Netflix series is a raunchy, hilarious look at growing up, exploring embarrassing scrapes with puberty, body image, hormones, self discovery, and more. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, make sure to mark Oct. 5 on your calendar.
The second season will again feature the voices of co-creator Nick Kroll, as well as John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate, and Jessi Klein. New cast members include Gina Rodriguez, playing the first girl in seventh grade to get boobs, while David Thewlis is playing The Shame Wizard, who is the Hormone Monster's mortal enemy "who haunts the kids by stoking their deepest shame." Check out the season's new trailer below, and bring on the cringe!
Every week, we gather a list of three shows you can watch on Netflix right now. There's shows you can finish in a day, and some you can just get started on. We mix shows that have recently come onto the service (like season two of "Big Mouth") with some old favorites you might have missed.
Season two of the delightful, informative, but also very gross animated comedy from Nick Kroll dropped over the weekend. It's laugh-out-loud funny throughout every episode, and goes even deeper into puberty than season one as it delves into body image depression (particularly from the female perspective).
Just over a year later, Big Mouth season 2 is about to drop on Netflix. Nick Birch (Kroll), Andrew Glouberman (John Mulaney) and Jessi Klein (Jessi Glaser) are back, along with the other horny kids, unknowning adults and monstrously personified hormones voiced by Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen and Jenny Slate. This time, however, the boys and girls struggling to deal with puberty will also have to contend with Gina (Gina Rodriguez) and the Shame Wizard (David Thewlis).
These somewhat more serious machinations notwithstanding, Big Mouth is a comedy first and foremost. Much like The Simpsons and Family Guy before it, it is an animated series that younger children should definitely not watch. Anyone who has experienced these kinds of growing pains first hand, however, will most likely enjoy both seasons.
The first season of Big Mouth quietly became one of the best animated shows for adults out there right now. And that's exactly why Netflix gave the series from Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg a second season, coming this October.
The second season of Big Mouth picks up right where the last season left off, which means our loveable group of dirty-minded 7th graders are continuing to deal with the emotional baggage that comes with growing up. Hormones are still raging, which means the Hormone Monsters are back to make the realities of discovery, body image shame, birth control, and countless other excruciating formative moments that much more difficult. Find out what they're dealing with in the Big Mouth season 2 trailer below. 041b061a72
