‘Big Mouth‘ is Netflix’s immensely popular adult animated sitcom, co-created by Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett. This award-winning series is a comic and surprisingly deep exploration of puberty and the transition to adulthood, through the eyes of a group of middle school students and their authoritarian hormonal monsters. Since its inception, this simplistically animated comedy series has been widely praised for its empathetic treatment of sensitive subjects through raw and highly graphic images and dialogues.
The series’ masterful combination of potash humor and insightful commentary has earned it the label as one of the best-animated series of all time. Four seasons later, the series has lost none of its bite, and fans are looking forward to the next season. If you’re curious about when you can expect more chilling sexual insinuations from Maury, here’s everything we know about Big Mouth Season 5!

Plot of Big Mouth Season 5: What is it about?
Season 4 of ‘Big Mouth’ saw the series’ core characters mature and tackle even more complicated aspects of adolescence, including shame, anxiety, and gratitude, each portrayed by their own adapted creatures, like distracting and persistent anxiety mosquitoes. Nick, suffering and repelling people because of his toxic alter ego Nick Starr is also finally able to defeat him with the help of the Gratitoad and Matthew makes his coming out to his father, with surprisingly benign results.
In Big Mouth Season 5, we can expect to see the colorful characters continue to struggle with the many obstacles on their way to adulthood, while facing the college’s ever-changing social dynamics. Maury, Connie, Rick and the other hormonal monsters will continue to attack their respective protégés, pushing them to commit truly disgusting missteps while transmitting (questionable) wisdom to them. Even more exciting, we can expect to see new monsters pop up, as they did in previous seasons, to represent the new problems the characters face as they grow up.
Mark Levin, one of the show’s creators, mentioned that the new season will explore the fact that children become politicians and activists. This is not a surprise, given the current atmosphere of political divergence. However, it will be very interesting to see the political issues through the unique lens that ‘Big Mouth’ offers, and who knows, maybe Rick the hormone monster will have an answer to all this, although it is more likely that he will sweep away all the questions thrown in his way with a signature What are you going to do baby?.
Big Mouth Action
The story centers on a group of teenagers living in the suburbs of NYC, who are making their first steps towards puberty, with all that follows from it such as: masturbation, and sexual arousal. During each episode, the guys interact with people and objects, which makes the adult sitcom more surrealistic. Big Mouth is an ironic look at the coming-of-age sitcoms. The series touches such vital questions of adulthood as menstruation, erection, libido, porno, etc.
