Netflix will be hosting a special Valentine’s Day episode of “Big Mouth” this year, allowing you and your hormone monster to snuggle up with a new episode over the holiday.
The half-hour animated comedy comes from real-life best friends Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg and perfectly captures the sometimes wonderful, often terrible, teenage years that we all had to endure. Comedian John Mulaney lends his voice to the character of Andrew, while Kroll (who serves as co-creator, executive producer) voices many of the characters including best friend, Nick. Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate, and Jessi Klein are among those who lend their voice to the series.
Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, and screenwriter-directors Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett are all creators and executive producers on the series. Netflix released a special promotional video for the holiday episode earlier today on YouTube and fans of the series can watch that trailer below.
The show was wildly successful in its first season, and Netflix quickly renewed the series for a follow-up season last year. The special episode was announced shortly after Netflix confirmed that the live-action series “Sex Education” was also renewed for a second season. Season two of that series is scheduled to begin production this spring in the UK. Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Aimee-Lou Wood, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Tanya Reynolds and Patricia Allison are set to reprise their roles in the show’s second season.
Creator Laurie Nunn will return as creator and executive producer with Jamie Campbell set to executive produce alongside Nunn. Eleven will continue as the production company for the second season of the breakout series. “Sex Education” season one was created and written by Laurie Nunn and executive-produced by Jamie Campbell and Ben Taylor, and co-executive produced by Sian Robins-Grace. Taylor also served as a director on season one along with Kate Herron.
Big Mouth is a Netflix production.
