Big Mouth spent the past few years exploring the ups and downs of puberty, but growing pains can only last so long. The acclaimed animated comedy series is ending its run after eight seasons, along with its spinoff Human Resources, which was canceled by Netflix after two seasons.
Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg co-created this series alongside Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett, drawing inspiration from their own childhood. The series focuses on a group of friends on the verge of adolescence, as they deal with their hormone monsters and navigate their way through puberty.
Billy Wee, Netflix’s director of adult animation, called Big Mouth “a towering achievement in animated comedy that will make Netflix history for its longevity” and said they’re thrilled to share more episodes with the fans before this brilliant coming-of-age story reaches its conclusion.
Spinoff Human Resources will also end after two seasons later this year. The characters from this series are expected to appear in Season 8 of Big Mouth, which will wrap up the story for both shows.
Big Mouth and Human Resources have been watched by over 50 million households, amassing over one billion hours viewed on Netflix to date and reaching the Top 10 in 29 countries.
