“Big Mouth,” Netflix’s animated comedy about puberty’s nasty, embarrassing moments, is ending with its eighth and final season. Before season 7, Netflix announced the news. That implies “Big Mouth” has two more seasons, presumably owing to its success, and fans can expect many more episodes before it concludes.
Longtime friends Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett devised “Big Mouth” based on their suburban childhoods in Westchester County outside New York City. The main protagonists’ confrontations with the Hormone Monsters, horny psychological representations of puberty, are notable for their candid and honest depiction of sex and sexuality taboos. Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas, Maya Rudolph, and Ayo Edebiri, who replaced Jenny Slate in 2020, make up the ensemble cast.
“Big Mouth” is Netflix’s longest-running show, surpassing “Grace and Frankie” and “Orange is the New Black,” which all lasted seven seasons. Despite its purposely filthy humour and controversy, including its erroneous portrayal of pansexuality, the programme has gained Emmy nominations and critical accolades. The characters mature, unlike “The Simpsons” and “South Park,” therefore their trip must finish.
The series’ popularity spawned a spin-off called “Human Resources” about the Hormone Monsters and other emotional monsters including the Shame Wizard, Lovebug, and Logic Rock. “Human Resources” will finish with its second season, concluding the “Big Mouth” world. Netflix extended its contract with Brutus Pink, the animation firm behind both episodes, through 2026. Netflix hasn’t announced release dates for seasons 7 or 8, although the former will air later this year and the latter in 2024.
