When will Big Mouth season 5 be released?
Big Mouth Season 5 is slated for release on November 5, 2021. The date was announced with a teaser featuring Rick the Hormone Monster with knuckle tattoos spelling “Love” and “Hate” on each hand.

Who is in the cast of Big Mouth season 5?
Fans can expect to see all of the main Big Mouth characters return in Season 5. The cast of Big Mouth includes, among others, series co-creator Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Jordan Peele, Andrew Rannells and Richard Kind.
Season 4 also featured the additions of Maria Bamford, Zach Galifinakis and Seth Rogen to the cast. Additionally, the previous season featured Ayo Edebiri as Missy’s new voice, succeeding Jenny Slate. Edebiri will return for Season 5, but we don’t yet know if the other cast members who joined the series the previous season will return. That being said, we could all use a little more Gratitoad in our lives, so maybe they’ll bring back some Galifinaki to brighten up the children’s lives (and ours).
Who are the new monsters in Big Mouth season 5?
Brandon Kyle Goodman, Keke Palmer and Pamela Adlon have been confirmed as guest stars for Big Mouth Season 5, and they will represent a whole new kind of metaphorical monster. So far, the series has featured Hormone Monsters, the Shame Wizard, Depression Kitty, and a host of other characters representing human emotions and stages of development. According to Deadline, Season 5 will introduce a new kind of monster: lovebugs / hate worms.
These creatures can switch between their forms of love and hate depending on the emotions of the human assigned to them. Goodman will play Walter, Nick’s loving / hate worm, while Adlon will play Sonya, Jessi’s loving worm, and Palmer will play Rochelle, Missy’s hate worm.
Goodman and Palmer will be regulars on the upcoming Human Resources spinoff series, while Adlon will appear as a guest star. Suddenly, the upcoming appearances of these three actors could pave the way for the new show.
Who are the main characters in season 5 of Big Mouth?
Big Mouth fans will know all of the main characters in the series, all of whom are set to return in season 5. However, in case you didn’t know, here are the main characters in Big Mouth:
Nick Birch, a late bloomer who is constantly insecure about his physical development, is played by Kroll. André is his best friend. Nick and Andrew are loosely based on the youth of series creators Kroll and Goldberg.
Andrew Glouberman (Mulaney) is the other male protagonist in the series. He spends a lot of time masturbating and being harassed by his hormonal monster, Maurice / “Maury” (also voiced by Kroll).
Jessi Glaser is the “main girl” of the show and she is voiced by Jessi Klein. Jessi is more mature, sarcastic, and intelligent than most of her peers. Connie, played by Maya Rudolph, is her hormonal freak.
Jay Bilzerian (Mantzoukas) is a young Armenian-American boy who is obsessed with two things: sex and magic. Despite his outgoing personality, Jay comes from a broken home and longs for a loving family. In season 3, he turns out to be bisexual.
Missy Foreman-Greenwald is a sweet, shy, nerdy girl who, like Nick, struggles to develop late at first. She and Andrew are frequently matched. Missy is biracial and in Season 4, she begins to come to terms with her African American heritage.
Will there be a Big Mouth season 6?
Big Mouth has been an extremely popular Netflix series since its inception. So it’s no surprise that the series has already been renewed for a sixth season, even before the release of Season 5. Fans can probably expect Season 6 to arrive at the end of 2022, assuming keep everything on track on the production side.
Human Resources, a spin-off series that will take a look at the monsters that help and hinder human development, is also slated to air in 2022. Meanwhile, get ready for Season 5, which is shaping up to be a mind-boggling story.
What is the story of Big Mouth season 5?
Tito the anxious mosquito personified the show’s protagonists struggle with anxiety and their eventual triumph in Season 4. But, as we all know, anxiety and depression aren’t easily eradicated. There is always the possibility that these will resurface, but at least children now have some coping mechanisms to help them.
Does that imply that our favorite characters from Big Mouth Season 5 will become more complete human beings? Both yes and no. The main theme for Big Mouth Season 5 will be love and hate, with the new lovebugs and hate worms serving as metaphors for those emotional states. It’s not just about romantic or sexual feelings.
Nik will be expressing his feelings for Jessi in Season 5 with the help of his lovebug, Walter. Unfortunately, Jessi publicly rejects Nick, turning Walter into a worm of hate. Nick’s hatred will lead him down a dark and perilous path. It looks like we’ll get more commentary on toxic masculinity, a topic the series has already touched on. According to an article in the New York Times, among the topics covered by the authors were pornographic revenge, cystic acne and female friendship. Of course, we don’t know which of those topics entered the script, but it’s as dastardly and dark as it sounds, so be warned: you might despise Nick this season.
During this time, Jessi will become closer and closer to Ali (Ali Wong), to the point where she begins to wonder if she loves Ali more than just a friend. Sonya, her own lovebug, will motivate and assist her in this endeavor. However, as Jessi and Ali get closer and begin to co-opt Missy’s affinity group, Missy is visited by the hate worm Rochelle, who sends her into her own dark spiral.
Along with these plots of love and jealousy, Big Mouth Season 5 will also include a political angle, marking a new milestone in character development. Season 5 “will explore a bit more about kids who advocate and become political,” co-creator and EP Mark Levin told the USC Comedy Festival in April. However, Levin’s co-creator Flackett also mentioned that it was difficult to bring topical humor to the show.
“We take a long time to do a season, so topical humor is really, really tough,” she explained. “You can do something about political identity, like ‘I’m a Republican, I’m a Democrat, I’m anything’, but I don’t think we can do anything [more specific]. “Because, either way, we want the world to feel a little timeless.”
It looks like the characters will be a lot more mature than ever in Season 5, although that is unlikely to diminish the scorching, youthful humor of the series that made it so popular. Big Mouth Season 5 is very promising, and we can’t wait to see what happens!
