'Big Mouth' is an adult animated series inspired by the childhood of Kroll and Goldberg. First launched in 2017, the Emmy nominated series is about the adventures of a group of friends going through puberty and exploring adolescence, human sexuality and coming of age while battling their 'hormone monsters'. The third season is set to premiere this fall.

Other voice cast includes Maya Rudolph, Jessi Klein, Jenny Slate Mantzoukas, Fred Armisen, Jordan Peele and Andrew Rannells among others.
The head of adult animation for Netflix, Mike Moon said,
"Big Mouth brilliantly captures the most awkward phase in a person’s life — puberty — in a hilarious yet heartwarming way. We couldn’t be more excited to continue our relationship with Brutus Pink and bring more stories, more humor and more hormones to Netflix members around the world."
On the big announcement, the Brutus Pink stated,
"Netflix has given us the best creative experience imaginable, and we’ve been able to build an amazing community of talented writers, actors, producers and artists. We're thrilled to be continuing with everyone for years to come."
Netflix is making a big commitment towards animated content by opening an in-house animation studio and developing a host of projects since they can be made with much less financial cost than live-action shows. Coupled with the popularity of such productions with Big Mouth and 'BoJack Horseman' being among the most streamed content on streaming platforms, it can be a very profitable business for Netflix. Although, they also canceled 'Tuca & Bertie' last week after just one season.
