‘Big Mouth’ is a Netflix animated series that revolves around a bunch of middle-schoolers navigating the many challenges of puberty and struggling to control their raging hormone monsters. The show is created by Andrew Goldberg, Nick Kroll, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett. While it is primarily a funny show featuring lewd and crude absurdity and raunchy and profane jokes, ‘Big Mouth’ also depicts deeply insightful portrayals of issues that plague our society and us as human beings.
Apart from the hilarious bedroom and toilet humor, the series also focuses on sexuality norms, societal taboos, guilt, shame, anxiety, depression, sexual coercion, gender roles, consent, self-acceptance, and toxic relationships. With four seasons of ‘Big Mouth’ streaming on Netflix, it’s only natural that you wonder about season 5. Well, here are all the details about ‘Big Mouth’ season 5 that we know!
Big Mouth Season 5 Release Date
‘Big Mouth’ Season 4 released on December 4, 2020, on Netflix. The series usually premieres new seasons in late September or early October every year. Season 3 was released in October 2019, but the fourth season was delayed by two months due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Since Netflix has already renewed seasons 5 and 6 before the release of the third season, we know for sure that we are getting at least two more new seasons of ‘Big Mouth’. Considering everything, ‘Big Mouth’ season 5 can be expected to premiere sometime in late 2021, with possibly a November or December release date.
Big Mouth Season 5 Cast: Who is in it?
All of the show’s main and supporting cast is expected to return in Season 5. Co-creator Nick Kroll leads the cast of ‘Big Mouth’, voicing several main and supporting characters including Nick Birch, one of the protagonists who is based on Kroll himself, Lola Skumpy, Maurice the Hormone Monster, Rick the Hormone Monster, Coach Steve Steve, and many other guest characters. John Mulaney lends his voice to Nick’s best friend Andrew, along with Grandpa Andrew.
Jessi Klein is the voice behind Jessi Glaser and Jason Mantzoukas voices Jay Bilzerian. The standout star of the series is Connie, Maury’s female counterpart. Maya Rudolph is the throaty voice behind Connie. She also won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance in 2020 for her role as the hormone monstress. Jordan Peele is the voice actor for the Ghost of Duke Ellington.
Jenny Slater previously voiced the bi-racial Missy Foreman-Greenwald, but in the aftermath of the BLM movement, she stepped down as Missy’s voice, and Ayo Edebiri took over in Season 4’s last two episodes. Andrew Rannells voices Matthew MacDell, and Jean Smart is the Depression Kitty. Maria Bamford provides the voice for Tito the Anxiety Mosquito.
Big Mouth Season 5 Plot: What can it be About?
‘Big Mouth’ season 4 deals with serious issues like anxiety, depression, racial identity struggles, sexual orientation, and sexual coercion. In the final episodes of the fourth season, Jessi moves back to Bridgeton, Nick and Andrew each deal with their own mental health crisis, Missy embraces her “black” self, Devon divorces Devin, Matthew comes out to his parents, and Jay and Lola break up.
Season 5 will likely continue these storylines, with Jay and Lola definitely carrying their war into the new season (they actually say it in the episode). The hormone monsters will all make a raging return. It’s also possible that Tito the Anxiety Mosquito, Depression Kitty, and Shame Wizard are not quite done with the kids and may make a comeback. Moreover, we might see some of the characters have their first sexual experiences. Maybe someone will even lose their virginity in the next season.
