The fourth season of Big Mouth arrived and brought the kids more monsters to face, this time in the form of anxiety bugs.
The season started out at summer camp with Nick and Andrew still fighting after their falling out in Season 3 and introduced Tito the Anxiety Mosquito, as well as a new monster that really bothered Andrew.
The episode then moved to eighth grade, where the anxiety grew until the kids finally found assistance in the Gratitoad.
With the season tackling everything from transgender individuals to first periods and exploring one’s race, where else is there for Big Mouth to go?
Here is everything we know so far about Big Mouth Season 5.
This article provides everything that is known about Big Mouth Season 5 and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s dig down into what is known so far.
Is there going to be a Season 5 of Big Mouth?
With Big Mouth Season 4 just premiering this past weekend, there is more coming for these tortured and confused kids.
In 2019, Netflix inked a mew deal with Brutus Pink, who is the company consisting of Big Mouth creators, Andrew Goldberg, Nick Kroll, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett.
This deal will bring a new spin-off series titled Human Resources, which focuses on the workplace of the Hormone Monsters. However, it also greenlit Big Mouth Seasons 4, 5, and 6.
This means that, while Big Mouth Season 4 is still brand-new for people to view, there will be at least two more seasons and a spin-off for fans, including the soon-to-come Big Mouth Season 5.
Release date latest: When does Big Mouth Season 5 come out?
The next season of Big Mouth should come out much sooner than the long-waiting live-action series because this can be completed without worrying about social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Season 1 hit in September 2017, The second season arrived in October 2018 and the third in October 2019. The fourth season showed up just this past weekend, December 2020.
That makes it sound like Season 4 should be here at the end of 2021, sometime between September and December.
However, this might not happen.
Animation takes a long time to get right, even when it is as low-tech as Big Mouth, and there is a chance that Human Resources could come first, which could delay the release of Big Mouth Season 5.
We will update this page with more information when Big Mouth Season 5 heads into production.

Now, Lola wants sweet vengeance against Jay, which should be a great storyline in Season 5 of Big Mouth.
