One of the best comedies currently airing has just been renewed for three more seasons.
Variety has confirmed that Netflix has picked up animated comedy Big Mouth for a fourth, fifth, and sixth season.
The renewal is part of a new multi-year deal Netflix has signed with newly-formed animation company Brutus Pink. The company is comprised of Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett, the team behind the series. Under the deal, Brutus Pink will produce animated series and films for Netflix.
In a joint statement, Kroll, Goldberg, Levin, and 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.”
Mike Moon, head of adult animation for Netflix, said:
“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 humor, and more hormones to Netflix members around the world.”
I absolutely adore the show, but my friends have been split down the middle. Some love it too, and others wonder WTF is going on. I think it manages to find the humor in puberty, and my hope is that the show will slowly age up the characters so we can see them deal with other teenage issues that come around in the later years.
Big Mouth returns for a third season this fall.
