Netflix Sets Final Seasons For Big Mouth, Spinoff Human Resources

The final season of Big Mouth, set to air in 2024, will serve as a sendoff for both shows.


Netflix has announced the renewal of its adult animated comedy series Big Mouth for an eighth and final season ahead of its Season 7 premiere. The final season, set to launch in 2024, will make Big Mouth the longest running scripted original series in Netflix history, surpassing Grace and Frankie, with a total of eight seasons.

Deadline was first to report on the announcement, which also included news that Big Mouth's spinoff series Human Resources will also come to an end with its upcoming second season. Season 2 is set to premiere in the coming months.

"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 Nick Kroll, series star and executive producer. "'This seems like it will never end.'"

Inspired by Kroll and Goldberg's childhoods, Big Mouth follows a group of friends navigating the challenges of puberty, human sexuality, and coming of age, with a humorous take on the awkwardness of adolescence. The final season of Big Mouth will serve as a sendoff for both shows, as characters and storylines from Human Resources will flow into the last chapter of the mothership series.

Created by Kroll and Andrew Goldberg, Big Mouth has gained popularity on Netflix, amassing over 1 billion hours viewed and reaching Netflix's Top 10 in 29 countries. The series features an ensemble voice cast including Kroll, John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jordan Peele, Jason Mantzoukas, Fred Armisen, and Jenny Slate.

Netflix recently renewed its overall content deal with the animation production company, Brutus Pink, the creative team behind Big Mouth and Human Resources.
