Get ready for one ride as the beloved animated coming-of-age sitcom is ending! Here is everything we know so far about Big Mouth Season 8.
After seven successful, hilarious, and heartwarming seasons, Netflix has just announced that Big Mouth will be renewed for an eighth and final season ahead of its seventh season release! The animated comedy has won over audiences with its witty humour, unique characters, and relatable coming-of-age stories, which will be tough for loyal fans to say goodbye to, and the fans of the show are both excited and saddened by the news.
Over the years, Big Mouth has tackled everything from puberty to anxiety with an incredible voice cast, and it promises to be a bittersweet farewell to the characters that have captured our hearts and brought us so much laughter. It’s impact is evident as upon its release, the series received critical acclaim, with praise going to the writing, animation, voice acting, musical numbers, humor, and emboldening messages of acceptance.
With this renewal, “Big Mouth” has become the longest-running original series on Netflix. Previously, “Grace and Frankie” and “Orange Is the New Black” held that title with seven seasons each. Hence, if you’re wondering when the next season will air, then you have reached the right place to get all the details. So, sit back and get ready to say goodbye to the hormone monsters, the shame wizard, and all of our favorite hormone-filled characters as we prepare for one last ride with the final season of Big Mouth.
Before proceeding further, we would like to clear up all the raging rumors surrounding the prospective premiere date for the final season, which has yet to be acknowledged by Netflix. On the bright side, the network has confirmed the release window of Big Mouth Season 8, which will definitely premiere sometime around the fall of 2024 at the same time slot of 3 a.m. ET/12 a.m. PT on Netflix. We’ll need to wait a whole year, as the seventh season is scheduled to premiere in the fall of 2023.
Hence, the official plotline for the last season is way too early to predict, but we are certain that the series will carry the basic premise.
Inspired by Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg’s childhood, the plot of the series is as follows: “Even for a cartoon character, going through puberty isn’t easy for a young person. Andrew is learning that firsthand as he experiences the nightmare that is growing up in this animated series geared toward adults. Along for the ride are friends Nick and Jessi, who develop a budding romance along the way. The comedy veterans who lend their voices to “Big Mouth” include John Mulaney, Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph, and Jordan Peele.”
“If you would have told adolescent Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg that middle school would take eight years to finish, they would have been like, ‘Yeah, that sounds about right,'” said Kroll, series star and executive producer. “This seems like it will never end.'” In addition to this, Billy Wee, Netflix’s Director of Adult Animation, stated, “Big Mouth is a towering achievement in animated comedy that will make Netflix history for its longevity.” Further adding, “We are thrilled that we still have two more hilarious seasons to share with fans before this brilliant coming-of-age story reaches its conclusion.”
On the other hand, the eighth and final chapter of Big Mouth will serve as a sendoff for both shows as the characters and stories from Human Resources will flow into the new episodes of the mothership series. It has also been assumed that this season will be a standard 10-episode-long season with an average runtime of 25 to 46 minutes. Hence, the eighth season will end Big Mouth with a total of 81 episodes for its entire run on the streaming platform.
So, while you wait for further updates on Big Mouth Season 8, we reckon that the readers should binge-watch the prior seasons. All the seasons of Big Mouth are exclusively available on Netflix, with other series of the same genre also accessible with a wide range of membership options depending on the package you choose. The basic membership starts at $9.99 per month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49 per month, with no additional cost for any of their services.
In the meantime, take a look at the trailer for Big Mouth Season 6, which is created and executive produced by Nick Kroll, Andre Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett, and follows, “Season 6 focuses on the theme of family as the beloved characters continue each of their journeys, discovering that while you can’t always pick your family, you can surround yourself with those that love you for who you are,” and will continue to expand the plot for the upcoming seventh season:
