Netflix has renewed its critically-acclaimed adult animated comedy Big Mouth for an eighth and final season! The two upcoming seasons, which launches in 2023 and 2024, will make Big Mouth the longest-running series in Netflix history, outside of Kids & Family programming.
Big Mouth is the brainchild of Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett. The series follows a group of middle school friends as they navigate the glorious nightmare that is puberty. Big Mouth has been praised for its frank and honest portrayal of adolescence, as well as its sharp humor and relatable characters.
Big Mouth Will Be Netflix’s Longest Running Series (Outside of Kids & Family Programming)
“If you would have told adolescent Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg that middle school would take 8 years to finish, they would have been like ‘yeah, that sounds about right. This seems like it will never end.’”Nick Kroll, Creator, Executive Producer, and Star of Netflix’s Big Mouth
Big Mouth is a towering achievement in animated comedy that will make Netflix history for its longevity. We are thrilled that we still have two more hilarious seasons to share with fans before this brilliant coming of age story reaches its conclusion.”Billy Wee, Netflix Director of Adult Animation
The show has been a huge hit for Netflix, with over 1 billion hours of viewing time. It has also won numerous awards, including two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program. Here are some other big numbers Big Mouth has accomplished during its run so far:
