Netflix Reveals Premiere Date for Season 5 of 'Big Mouth'

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming fifth season of its original animated comedy series Big Mouth. The announcement was made during the streamer's fan event Netflix Tudum.

All 10 episodes of the fifth season will be available on Friday, November 5. The animated comedy has already been renewed for a sixth season.

Starting with "No Nut November" and continuing through New Year's Eve, the new season takes on the theme of love and hate with the introduction of lovebugs and hate worms, amorphous creatures that can shift between the two forms (like caterpillars and butterflies). Nick's lovebug, Walter, pushes Nick to pursue his feelings for Jessi until she publicly rejects him, turning Walter into a hate worm who leads Nick down a dark, rancorous path. Meanwhile, Jessi's lovebug, Sonya, appears as Jessi gets closer with Ali and eventually wonders if she loves her as more than a friend. Jessi and Ali's new close bond, and joint co-opting of Missy's affinity group, sends Missy into her own hate spiral, fueled by hate worm Rochelle. Jealousy, unrequited love, and newfound crushes abound in this new form-breaking season as the teens navigate eighth grade.

The voice cast features Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas, Ayo Edebiri, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Jordan Peele and Andrew Rannells.

Brandon Kyle Goodman, Keke Palmer and Pamela Adlon will guest star in the upcoming season, voicing their characters from the upcoming spinoff Human Resources.

Kroll co-created the series with Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett.
