Netflix’s nastiest and most woke animated series about puberty, Big Mouth is confirmed for Season 3, but when exactly will it arrive and where will the series go after the incredible madness that was Season 2?
Big Mouth offers a bizarro universe where half-imaginary beings exist as physical manifestations of hormones, shame, depression, and all other manner of influences. So rather than a surge of hormones urging these kids to act in all sorts of ways, it’s a literal monster chuckling in their ear.
Here’s what you need to know about Big Mouth Season 3 from the potential release date to the latest fan theories.
Is Big Mouth confirmed for a Season 3?
Yes! On November 18, Netflix confirmed that Big Mouth Season 3 is coming to the streaming service in 2019. That doesn’t come as a huge surprise considering the overwhelmingly positive reception the show’s first two seasons received, but it’s still good news for anyone worried about the animated show’s future.
As for a set release date, we still don’t know much of anything beyond the year. Still, based on the past two seasons we can make some educated guesses about when Big Mouth Season 3 will arrive.
When is the Big Mouth Season 3 release date?
Big Mouth Season 3 is bound to arrive at around the same time of year as the past two seasons. Season 1 released on September 29, 2017, with the second season arriving on October 5, 2018. Based on that, we can assume Season 3 might be released in late September or early October 2019. Netflix also likes to release new shows on Friday, which next year could mean either September 27 or October 4.
Is there a trailer for Big Mouth Season 3?
Not yet, but Netflix released a teaser trailer for Season 2 on August 29. So you can probably expect a similar video for Season 3 in late August of next year — assuming Big Mouth gets renewed.
What happened at the end of Big Mouth Season 2?
In “The Department of Puberty,” Nick, Andrew, and Jessi go through a portal left by Nick’s former Hormone Monster Tyler and into the world of Human Resources, where all the Hormone Monsters come from. As it turns out, there’s a whole lot of office bureaucracy going on there.
We see an office meeting regarding Jessi’s future in which her D. N. Ape, Hormone Monstress, Intellect Sphinx, Ambition Gremlin, and Anxiety Armadillo all debate how her life’s going to go — before the Depression Kitty swoops in. After Jessi’s inevitably rescued from the feline, she decides that she needs therapy.
While in this other world, Nick hunts for a new Hormone Monster and almost signs up with Gavin, a dude-guy-bro who’s so intense even Maury doesn’t like him. Meanwhile, Andrew realizes that nobody likes the Shame Wizard and comes to relate to him in a weird way. After the three kids make it out, it’s business as usual — growing up with weird demons stalking them.
Meanwhile, out in the real world, Jay discovers and accepts his bisexuality. Coach Steve also gets fired for what happened during the overnight sleepover when all the kids trashed the school, but the biggest revelation comes at the very end when we find out that Connie (Jessie’s Hormone Monster) will take over Nick’s puberty as well.
What happens when a teenage boy has a female Hormone Monster? How Will Jessi handle therapy? Will Andrew ever stop being so awkward and gross? Hopefully, we’ll find out in Big Mouth Season 3.
What Will Happen in Big Mouth Season 3?
We still don’t know anything official about the next season of Big Mouth but one of Season 2’s final scenes could have big ramifications for the show’s main character, Nick.
As you probably remember, Nick needs another new hormone monster at the end of Season 2, and in a surprise twist he ends up with Connie the Hormone Monstress instead. In the moment, this seems to be a good thing, but as fans have pointed out, it’s not quite that simple.
As one redditor noted, Connie has pretty much been a bad influence since Season 1. One of the first things she does is tell Jessi to shoplift, and that’s exactly what happens in Season 2. So will this hormone monstress send Nick down the same path in Season 3? Maybe not…
Another Big Mouth fan argued for a completely different Connie-related outcome on Reddit. They speculate that the reason Nick’s dad is such a well-adjusted man who’s in touch with his own emotions is because Connie was his hormone monstress too.
In that case, Nick may actually be in luck. Thanks to Connie, he could escape the toxic masculinity we see in most of Big Mouth’s adult men, and instead turn out like his progressive (if a little weird) father.
