Netflix has renewed 'Big Mouth' for another three seasons
Netflix, the world's most popular streaming service, has managed to bring out some jaw-droppingly good original content over the years. Just think about some of their best shows: Orange Is the New Black, Stranger Things, The Haunting of Hill House, and Bojack Horseman. And ever since its debut, the animated sitcom Big Mouth has steadily accrued a loyal fanbase.
In case you've missed out, Big Mouth stars Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas, Jenny Slate, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph and Jordan Peel - and tells the story of friends Nick and Andrew as they go through puberty together - "helped" by two beings called 'hormone monsters.'
Check out the trailer for the first season of Big Mouth below:
Now Netflix has announced that the show has been renewed for another three seasons as part of a multi-year deal with new animation company, Brutus Pink.
In a joint statement, creators Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett said: "Netflix has given us the best creative experience imaginable, and we've been able to build an amazing community of talented writers, actors, producers and artists. We're thrilled to be continuing with everyone for years to come."
Fans of the show have taken to social media to react to the good news:
However, while some viewers have taken the news well, others seemed to resent the fact that Big Mouth was renewed for three seasons, while Tuka and Birdy (created by Bojack Horseman producer and animator Lisa Hanawalt) was cancelled after one season, despite boasting critical acclaim.
Meanwhile, head of adult animation for Netflix Mike Moon stated: "Big Mouth brilliantly captures the most awkward phase in a person's life, puberty, in a hilarious yet heartwarming way. We couldn't be more excited to continue our relationship with Brutus Pink and bring more stories, more humour, and more hormones to Netflix members around the world."
Season three of Big Mouth has still to air, but in the meantime, why not check out the new show Typewriter, which has left viewers utterly terrified.
