Big Mouth Season 4 is officially here, and you know what that means it is time to start obsessing over the release date of Season 5. If you are anything like the majority of the fans, you already binged through all the ten new episodes in a blur of puberty jokes and Hormone Monsters, so you are probably wondering when the animated series will return.
Here is everything we know about Big Mouth Season 5, from the potential release date to the Big Mouth cinematic universe’s future.
Historically, there has been a year-long gap between each season of Big Mouth. The show was premiered on September 29, 2017, the second season arrived on October 5, 2018, and the third season hit Netflix on October 4, 2019.
Season 4 of the series was delayed slightly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which was released on December 4, 2020.
What does that mean for the release date of Big Mouth Season 5? It is easy to think the series would not return for another 14 months, but all the signs seem to suggest that the show is back on track.
Big Mouth Season 5 | Netflix’s Release Date Cast And Storyline
During an online table read in the month of March of the year 2020, Nick Kroll, the series creator, said that the team was already working hard on the fifth season.
He said to the cast and crew that Big Mouth writer’s room has been at full throttle. He has seen them over Zoom every day for the past two weeks.”
A New York Times article also confirmed recently that the team has been working on Season 5 since before the pandemic.
Big Mouth is an animated series, meaning the same sort of safety precautions you would see on a live-action set aren’t necessary. So it seems possible we’ll see Big Mouth Season 5 released in December 2021 or maybe even earlier.
It is also possible that we could get another episode like Big Mouth’s valentine’s special one. In that case, we could also get more Big Mouth even sooner.
Netflix already renewed the show through Season 6. So there is plenty of Big Mouth left to go. That same NYTimes article confirms that Season 5 will consist of 10 episodes, just like Season 4.
Season 4 ended with some significant plot developments. Jessi moved back to Westchester to live with her dad, while Nick faced down his evil future-self and won.
