Netflix has dropped the first trailer for the second season of animated series Big Mouth.
The gang is back, and they’re in peak adolescent mode, dealing with their raging hormones, body image, and all manner of baggage during this highly emotional period. The first season grabbed attention with its in-your-face humour and outrageous depiction of one of life’s most awkward stages, but carried with it a level of heart and knowing empathy that made it surprisingly compassionate. And yeah, it was freakin’ hilarious. Fingers crossed season 2 follows suit.
The next chapter bring back the regular cast members, including Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Fred Armisen and Jenny Slate, and adds Gina Rodriguez as the first girl at school to develop boobs and David Thewlis as The Hormone Monster’s mortal enemy, The Shame Wizard. Hell yeah.
Big Mouth season 2 will arrive on October 5.
