There's Going to Be a Big Mouth Spinoff Called "Human Resources" and I For One Cannot Wait (Even Though There's No Release Date)
Talk about some fantastic, unexpected news on a Monday afternoon; we're going to get to dive deeper into the Big Mouth universe in a new spinoff called Human Resources.
Don't worry, Big Mouth isn't going anywhere just yet; it's still renewed for at least another two seasons, but according to Collider, there were stories about a Big Mouth spinoff dating back to 2019. Excuuuuse me if that escaped my mind after, in no particular order, a global pandemic, an attack on American democracy that the GQP wants to wipe under the rug, and Tom Brady leaving for the Patriots for scuzzy Tampa. My bad, I forgot about a story I probably never even saw—no wonder why I'm not a Barstool blogger!
Human Resources is set to give us a deeper look into the workplace of Hormone Monsters, Shame Wizards, and many more new characters helping guide humans through this crazy little thing called life. Nick Kroll and Maya Randolph will continue to voice their respective roles of Maurie and Connie the Hormone Monsters. In addition, Aidy Bryant, Randall Park, Brandon Kyle Goodman, Keke Palmer (all people I 1000% knew existed before reading this article) are set to join the cast as well.
Randall Park's character is named Logic Rock, and I hoped to come across more information regarding his role, but only could find this:
While news like this is exciting, and I'm genuinely excited to check it out, I can't help but be a little annoyed that there's no release date. Who are you guys, Silk Sonic? How are you gonna leave the door open with no timetable? Are we talking later this summer, the fall, 2027? How hard is it to give us a ballpark? This isn't Oakland. Why even tell us the cast at this point?
Speaking of no release date, when are we getting Big Mouth season five? I'm sure COVID slowed production down, but I feel like an animated series is the ultimate socially distanced, isolated project. But then again, what do I know? I've been out of the TV biz since the 90s. Whatever, I'm sure I'll forget about this news in 45 minutes. On the other hand, I just finished rewatching Mad Men last night (my all-time favorite "serious" show) and could use a complete 180, so maybe it's time for Ole Dozo to rewatch Big Mouth.
