If you are hooked to the show Big Mouth. Then keep reading to know what is coming up next for the show and its fans.
In July of 2019, Big Mouth co-creator Nick Kroll confirms in a twitter handle that Netflix picked up the series for Season four, five, and six.
Big Mouth Season 4 Release Date
Season one was released on September 29, 2017, on Netflix. And second season arrived on October 5, 2018. Especially as Season three released on October 4. Now it appears reasonable to assume that Season four releases either on Friday, October 2nd, 2020, or the week after on October 9.
The final statement from Netflix came on August 28, 2020. The last press release about a casting announcement approves that Season four would premiere in “Fall 2020.” At the same time, it is evident that anywhere between late September to early December. The release date in the first week of October will make the most sense.
Big Mouth Season 4 Cast and Ayo Edebiri’s New Role
Actress Jenny Slate exits the show in July 2020, reasoning that “Black characters on an animated show have Black people.”
Slate, who is Jewish and white, voices Missy, a young girl who is half-Jewish, half-Black.
Her decision came around a month after the killing of George Floyd. At a time when the showbiz industry began to reckon with a lack of diversity in terms of representation across TV and cinema.
That same day, Nick Kroll releases a statement on Twitter on behalf of the series’ creators to highlight Slate’s decision.
“We sincerely apologize for and regret our initial decision to cast a white actor to voice a biracial character,” it reads, conveying the intent to recast the character with a Black actor to represent her identity better.
Netflix confirms on August 28, 2020, that comedy writer and performer Ayo Edebiri would assume the role of Missy in the penultimate episode of Season four.
Edebiri joins the Big Mouth team as a writer in Season five before tapping for this new role. There is reportedly a “moment” in the second-to-last episode of Season four. That felt like a natural fit for some transition to happen for Missy.
It seems like Big Mouth will dive into some meta-commentary with the character. Missy spends time with Black members of her family. And will cause an identity shift that develops as the change in voice. It is a provocative way to say something about the phenomenon, so expect nothing less from a show this smart.
Big Mouth Season 4 Trailer
There is no trailer for Big Mouth Season four yet. And the Season three trailer did not release until mid-to late-September a few weeks ahead of the new season’s air date. If that release schedule moves forward, then expect the real trailer in September 2020.
Season three did include a Valentine’s Day special in February 2019. But it does not look like there are any other holiday specials in the making of the show as of now.
The Big Mouth fans will have to stay tuned to know more about the latest updates on the series’ future.
