Netflix Greenlights Second Season of Big Mouth
Streaming giant Netflix has recently greenlighted a new season’s worth of episodes of Nick Kroll’s animated comedy, Big Mouth. The news was heralded by a short video clip publishedo n the show’s official social media accounts.
For the uninitiated, Big Mouth’s first season consisted of 10 x 30 minute episodes that focus on the trials and tribulations of puberty, filtered through the lens of comedy and awkward teenager perspective. Kroll created the show with Andrew Goldberg (Family Guy); both also provide voices for the show. The show premiered on Netflix last Sept. 29, and was deemed a success (hence Netflix ordering another round of episodes.)
John Mulaney (John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid, Saturday Night Live) 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 (Maya & Marty, Bridesmaids), Jason Mantzoukas (The League, Lady Dynamite), Jordan Peele (Keanu, Key and Peele), Fred Armisen (Portlandia, Documentary Now!), Jenny Slate (Girls, Lady Dynamite) and Jessi Klein (Inside Amy Schumer) are among those who lend their voice to the series.
Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg and screenwriter-directors Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett are all creators and executive producers on the series. Big Mouth is a Netflix production.
