Nick Kroll’s wildly embarrassing, entertaining and inappropriate teenage prepubescent to pubescent animated series makes its return to Netflix for season two on October 5. Our favorite awkward tweets are heading into seventh grade this season, and the emotional turmoil is about to step up a notch. Hormones raging, body image issues bubbling, and questions about sex, birth control and countless other adolescent moments fill a new season of Big Mouth starring Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate and Jessi Klein. Joining the cast this season are Gina Rodriguez and David Thewlis. Rodriguez voices the character of Gina, who shakes up the social dynamics as the first girl at the middle school who has developed boobs. Thewlis portrays The Shame Wizard, The Hormone Monster’s mortal enemy who haunts the kids by stoking their deepest shame.
Big Mouth is a 10-episode, half-hour edgy adult animated comedy from real-life best friends Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg about the glorious nightmare that is teenage puberty. Comedian John Mulaney lends his voice to the character of Andrew, while Kroll (who serves as co-creator, executive producer) voices many including best friend Nick. Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate and Jessi Klein are among those who lend their voice to the series. Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg and screenwriter-directors Mark Levin & Jennifer Flackett are all creators and executive producers on the series. Big Mouth is a Netflix production.
The teaser opens during a sex education class, a horror that everyone remembers well, illuminated as only Kroll’s animated world can. Watch the trailer and get ready for Big Mouth season two, only on Netflix.
