Everything we know about the Big Mouth season 4 release date and more
Big Mouth season 4 is coming to Netflix soon!
The outstanding Emmy-nominated Netflix animated series Big Mouth will be returning for a fourth season. According to TV Line, Netflix renewed Big Mouth through a sixth season a year ago, so there is plenty of the acclaimed series heading our way in the coming years.
Created by Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett, Big Mouth dexterously strikes a singular balance between some of the foulest, surreal and transgressive humor ever displayed on TV screens and realistically platforming modern issues weighing on the minds and lives of today’s teenagers and young adults. It has been nominated for Emmys, Annie Awards, and MTV Movie and TV Awards throughout its three-season run so far.
Big Mouth is a unique, assertive, and truly special half-hour comedy, and this page is devoted to all info regarding its upcoming fourth season. Take a look below!
Big Mouth season 4 release date
Big Mouth season 4 has wrapped production and is coming out sometime this fall. The show has been recognized as having a fairly quick turnaround time between seasons, especially considering the cerebral issues it addresses and its often-surreal animation.
Normally, new seasons of Big Mouth are added to Netflix in the last week of September or the first week of October. That’s when all the first three seasons have been released.
If the new season follows that pattern, we should see Big Mouth season 4 in October 2020, as well.
Big Mouth season 4 cast
Big Mouth boasts one of the widest-ranging casts of comedic talent today, with its leads frequently voicing more than one character. The lead talent of the upcoming season includes Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas, Jenny Slate, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, and Jordan Peele.
Most recently, voice actress Jenny Slate and the show’s co-creators have mutually decided to recast a black actor in the lead role of Missy, a character who is half-black. This news arrives in line with many other black voiceover characters from other animated TV shows being recast from their original white VO actors. Jenny Slate’s Missy will be heard in season 4, but another actress will voice Missy going forward.
Updated Aug. 28, 2020: According to Variety, Ayo Edebiri will voice Missy in Big Mouth season 5 and beyond!
There will likely be other stars voicing some characters of season 4!
Big Mouth season 4 trailer
A trailer for Big Mouth season 4 has not been released yet. Hopefully, it’ll drop soon, but luckily, one of the boons of waiting for new Big Mouth content is that the show is wonderfully formulaic while seemingly packing many jokes per second, making it one of the most rewatchable shows in recent memory.
You can re-binge the entire show in the meantime, or pick out some of the best standalone episodes!
Big Mouth season 4 synopsis
Big Mouth primarily revolves around a group of teens as they collectively deal with their struggles regarding puberty and physical development. Their most explicit and repressed thoughts take physical shape in the forms of id-like “shadow angels” called Hormone Monsters, who poke fun at the kids’ lives and families. Various other inanimate objects and magical beings take on lives of their own, including but not limited to, the paternal ghost of a jazz musician, an impregnated pillow, and my personal favorite, a slang-spewing ladybug.
It’s full of meticulously organized craziness, with wacky bits and characters galore. If you’ve never watched it before, now’s the perfect time to check it out before the fourth season drops! I’d advise starting from the pilot, as every ep is significant in its own way, but some of my favorite entries are “I Survived Jessi’s Bat Mitzvah,” “The Planned Parenthood Show,” and “Disclosure the Movie: The Musical!”
