Netflix announced today that Big Mouth has been picked up for an eighth and final season. The early renewal comes well ahead of the animated comedy's already-ordered seventh season, which will likely premiere this fall. Season 8 will follow in 2024 to conclude the show's run.

"Big Mouth is a towering achievement in animated comedy that will make Netflix history for its longevity," said Billy Wee, Netflix Director of Adult Animation. "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."

Co-created by actor and comedian Nick Kroll, Big Mouth follows a fictionalized version of himself and his best friend in their teenage years as their lives are getting turned upside down by puberty. With their hormones raging and their bodies doing all sorts of strange things, life has never been so confusing for them and their friends.

The series has garnered high praise from both viewers and critics for each of its seasons thus far. It has been nominated for the Outstanding Animated Program Emmy every year since 2019 but has yet to take home a win in the category.
