There's no shortage of excellent adult-oriented animation out there, and Netflix has certainly capitalized on that trend with striking results. With a smart and technically-intricate show like the recently renewed BoJack Horseman bolstering the service's catalog, Netflix recently doubled down on its high-quality animation with the release of Big Mouth. Fans seem to have responded quite positively to the show's first season, and it looks like Netflix is keen to return to that well for a second.
On that note, Netflix has officially announced its decision to move forward with the second season of Big Mouth. The puberty-focused animated sitcom centering on a group of adolescent kids in the New York suburbs has generally received a warm welcome from critics (including CinemaBlend, you can check out our review to read for yourself) for its insanely vulgar, yet still heartwarming and relatable storylines. Of course, Big Mouth has not been without its own fair share of controversy in recent months, as some have leveled criticisms against it for the sexualization of child characters, but, overall, Netflix appears to have enough faith in the material (and the folks behind the material) to keep these stories going for at least another season.

The announcement of yet another Big Mouth season specifically feels like a major win for Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. Following the cancellation of Kroll Show on Comedy Central, the two brought their fan-favorite characters, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland, to the Broadway stage for The Oh, Hello Show. Netflix's broadcast of the stage production has become one of the streaming platform's best (and weirdest) pieces of comedic content, and Big Mouth seems to have reaffirmed the notion that Mulaney and Kroll are a strong partnership to provide vulgar content on a less-restrictive streaming platform.
CinemaBlend will keep you posted with more updates related to Season 2 of Big Mouth as new information is made available to us; the show is expected to return sometime next year.
