'Big Mouth' season 3 is coming to Netflix this fall
Great news, hormone monsters! Big Mouth, the crude, hilarious Netflix animated series about the awkwardness of adolescence, is returning this fall with season three. Obviously, Nick Kroll and Maya Rudolph will return as Maury and Connie, but what else can fans look forward to? Here's everything we know so far.
According to IMDb updates, tweets, The Hollywood Reporter, and the secret microphones I planted inside Nick Kroll's house, the guest stars/returning voices include Ali Wong, Thandie Newton, Martin Short as a "Canadian pansexual magician," John Mulaney as Andrew Glouberman, Fred Armisen as Elliot, Jason Mantzoukas as Jay, Jenny Slate as Missy, Jessi Klein as Jessi and Jordan Peele as the ghost of Duke Ellington.

Following the release of the My Furry Valentine special in February, co-creator Andrew Goldberg spoke to Metro about the new season. "We’re deep into animation right now," he said. "We do some rewriting at the art and animation phase, but the show is mostly pretty set. We’re still fixing things that don’t quite work or changing things that don’t quite look right, but we’re into it."
"When we first started, we were constantly worrying about whether we would have enough stories to tell," Goldberg continued. "But so far, rather than scraping for ideas, we’re finding that we can’t do everything we want to do in a season. Some things we have to save for a season 4 for beyond."
Over the first two seasons, the show featured several hilarious songs, from Totally Gay to Everybody Bleeds to Sex On A Lady. Viewers can look forward to new totally bonkers bangers in season three. While to speaking to Yahoo last week, composer Mark Rivers described one of the new tunes:
"It’s pretty funny, and it’s a rocker, as you might guess. It’s an ‘80s metal song called “Anything Goes In Florida.” There’s an episode that is set in Florida, and all kinds of crazy sh*t happens—because it’s Florida. So, Maury sings about it, and his voice sounds a bit like Lemmy Kilmister from Motörhead.
There are a handful of other songs I’m pretty excited about. Martin Short has a guest appearance in Season 3, and he sings a patter song about the spectrum of sexuality, which came out really great. Because he’s Martin Short; of course it did."
Netflix has not announced a specific release date yet. But since the first season was released on September 29, 2017 and the second season was released on October 5, 2018, somewhere in that range seems like a good bet. In the meantime, go outside! It's summer.
