A new trailer for Big Mouth season 2 has arrived. Netflix has had a lot of luck with their original animated shows, but Big Mouth wound up being pretty memorable when it debuted last year due to its extremely honest and wildly inappropriate depiction of young people during their formative years. Now, the show is back for a second season and the first teaser gives us a glimpse at the hormone monsters coming back in full force for another go.
This serves as more of an announcement teaser than it is an actual trailer for the new season. We see everyone gathered together peacefully in sex-ed class before the hormone monsters tear the roof off of the place and make things a bit more interesting. We're then treated to a little bit of toilet humor, which, for anyone who watched the first season, is to be expected. This first teaser also comes with the reveal that Big Mouth season 2 drops on October 5th. The show's sophomore season will be picking up right where season 1 left off, and 7th grade is even more embarrassing than ever. This season the gang is still grappling with all of the emotional baggage that comes with growing up. As their hormones continue to rage, they are confronted with the awkward realities of self discovery, body image shame, birth control, and countless other excruciating adolescent moments.
Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate and Jessi Klein all return for season 2. The show has brought in some new additions in the form of 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 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 is also a co-creator and executive producer, voices various characters, including best friend Nick. Kroll, Goldberg and screenwriter-directors Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett are all creators and executive producers on the series.
Inappropriate as the show may be, it's been a big critical success for Netflix. As of this writing, Big Mouth season 1 has an unblemished 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with 18 reviews counted. Hopefully, season 2 doesn't tarnish that. The upcoming season will consist of ten new episodes and, as per usual, they're all going to drop on the same day so subscribers can binge at their leisure.
