Netflix released a trailer for the upcoming 5th season of their hit animated series Big Mouth. This season, which is made of 10 30-minute episodes premiering November 5th, adds a slew of new monsters, and guest voices! Find out who these new characters are below and then check out the official trailer at the bottom of the page.
Guests include Adam Scott as “Mr. Keating,” Jemaine Clement as “Simon Sex,” Kristen Schaal as “Bernie,” Kumail Nanjiani as “Kumail Nanjiani,” and Chloe Fineman as “Leah.” It was previously announced that Brandon Kyle Goodman (“Walter”), Keke Palmer (“Rochelle”), and Pamela Adlon (“Sonya”) will be guest-starring this season. The three will also appear in the Big Mouth spin-off, Human Resources, and their characters will be introduced in this new season.
Starting with “No Nut November” and continuing through New Years Eve, Big Mouth Season 5 takes on the theme of LOVE & 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 (Brandon Kyle Goodman), 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 (Pamela Adlon), 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 (Keke Palmer). Jealousy, unrequited love, and newfound crushes abound in this new form-breaking season as the Big Mouth teens navigate 8th grade.
