Big Mouth Season 2: What We Know So Far

The crass Netflix Original animated series Big Mouth is returning on October 5th for its second season. There’s been quite a bit of news and snippets surrounding the next season so let’s take a look at everything we know about season 2 of Big Mouth.

Big Mouth found its way onto Netflix late last year and it was desperately needed. With Fox’s top flight animated sitcoms leaving Netflix in favor of Hulu and only a handful of Originals, a content hole appeared. And to complete my pun, Big Mouth certain filled said hole. It follows around a group of friends as they hit puberty and the puberty monsters find them.


The Impact of Season one

The first season was a runaway success for Netflix. On Netflix, most reviews are up in the five-star review territory with the exception of a few who don’t’ like how rude the show is. The show also boasts high review scores on Metacritic, IMDb, and Rotten Tomatoes.

As for us, we’ve ranked it pretty highly on Netflix among the other animated series. On our top 5 animated shows list, we’ve ranked it number 3.

Just recently, Netflix released some new features on Netflix regarding its mature content policy. Big Mouth wasn’t mentioned by name but because of its cartoon nature, it’s clear that these measures will impact the show.


The Season 2 Cast

There have been no major departures for the show going into season two and the teaser trailer revealed that all of the main voice actors are returning. These include:
