Netflix confirms beloved comedy is returning to screens next month – despite huge backlash from viewers | The Sun

NETFLIX’S beloved comedy Big Mouth is returning for its seventh season next month, despite huge backlash from viewers who’ve branded the show “borderline paedophilia.”

Big Mouth returns to the streamer in October as the characters embark on their biggest challenge yet; high school. 

The Netflix animated series is a coming-of-age sitcom created and written by Family Guy’s Andrew Goldberg alongside Nick Kroll, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett. It centres on pre-pubescent teens – Nick, Andrew, Jay, Jessi and Missy – who are all in their own way going through puberty. 

Acting as over-sexualized shoulder angels are the Hormone Monsters: Maurice, who’s known as Maury, Connie, who’s known as the Hormone Monstress, and Mona. 

The show, which has been running since 2017, has been praised for its honestly.

It sees Nick voice a fictionalised version of his younger self, alongside John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate, Jessi Klein and Ayo Edibiri.

Big Mouth’s first six seasons have followed the kids through middle school, and on October 20 they officially head off to high school. “But not before anxieties about new friends and new schools make their young lives even more challenging,” the show’s official synopsis confirms. 

The show has also been renewed for its eighth and final season. 

Teasing what fans can expect over the next two seasons, co-creator Nick said: “We think we still have an incredible amount of stories to tell. There’s so much to say about puberty; it’s not a limited amount of material.” 

The upcoming season also features an extensive list of guest stars. Megan Thee Stallion, Lupita Nyong’o, Stephanie Beatriz, Zazie Beetz, Billy Porter, Brian Tyree Henry, Zach Galifianakis, Randall Park and Thandiwe Newton are headed to Westchester.

With new challenges for the Big Mouth kids and such a stacked cast, Season 7 is sure to pack a punch. However, the show’s return has angered many Netflix viewers who are opposed to the show’s no-holds-barred approach to puberty, including masturbation. 

One viewer criticised the show on social media, saying: “The show Big Mouth has been on for a couple of years. Please highlight this show!! Glorifies preteen masturbation.”

Another said: “We were warned as parents in our small town about this show. IT’S BAD.”

A third outspoken critic tweeted: “For those of you that like Big Mouth, how does it feel being a border line paedophile?”

Meanwhile, a fourth viewer said they cancelled their Netflix subscription when the streamer released the “disgusting” show.

However, others have defended the show, with one reminding viewers that “the humour’s gross and crass because that’s exactly how puberty felt.”

Meanwhile, Billy Wee, Netflix’s director of adult animation, has praised the show as a “towering achievement in animated comedy.”

Excited for the remaining episodes, he added: “We are thrilled that we still have two more hilarious seasons to share with fans before this brilliant coming-of-age story reaches its conclusion.”

Big Mouth Season 7 premieres on Netflix on October 20.
