Netflix Sets Premiere Dates for Animated Comedy 'Big Mouth' and Limited Series 'Godless'

Netflix has today announced premiere dates for two upcoming series - the animated comedy Big Mouth and limited series Godless.

Animated comedy Big Mouth will drop its 10-episode first season on Friday, September 29.

The series is described as an edgy adult animated comedy about the glorious nightmare that is teenaged puberty.

The voice cast includes Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate and Jessi Klein.

Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett created the series and serve as executive producers. Big Mouth is a Netflix production.

Limited series Godless will premiere its seven episodes on Wednesday, November 22.

The series unspools the tale of an infamous criminal named Frank Griffin (The Newsroom's Jeff Daniels), whose murderous gang of outlaws are hell-bent on revenge against Roy Goode (Unbroken's Jack O'Connell), a son-like protégé who betrayed the brotherhood. The on-the-lam Roy retreats to a New Mexico mining town governed largely by women, where he meets widower and fellow outcast Alice Fletcher (Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery), and where there will be a showdown with Griffin and his men.

The cast also features Merritt Wever, Scoot McNairy, Kim Coates, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Jeremy Bobb, Rob Morgan, Whitney Able, Kayli Carter, Tess Frazer, Sam Waterston and Christopher Fitzgerald.

Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank created the series. They executive produce with Casey Silver. Godless is a Netflix production.
