Netflix has announced plans to launch a spinoff of its original adult animated sitcom Big Mouth. The new series will be called Human Resources and it’ll focus specifically on the monsters we see in the primary show. The company announced its plan at the New York Comic Con alongside a short teaser trailer giving us a brief look at the monsters’ world.
Big Mouth is one of Netflix’s bigger animated hits, offering adults a raunchy sitcom focused on the struggles of puberty with a roster of characters of both the human and monster variety. The series launched on Netflix in September 2017; there are currently three seasons available, all of which have largely received high reviews from critics and viewers.
During NYCC, Netflix said its spinoff show will bring in Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Jennifer Flackett, Mark Levin, and Kelly Galuskawill as creators and executive producers. Kroll is the voice behind character Nick Birch in Big Mouth, a series that also boasts voice talent from Jodan Peele, Maya Rudolph, John Mulaney, and others.
The company didn’t have much to say about its upcoming Human Resources series, though it’s likely safe to assume that it’ll keep the same general nature of Big Mouth, bringing the same adult humor and — as the trailer shows — the same animation style. Netflix provided a single sentence describing the show:
“Human Resources: We manage people. The next great animated series from the creators of Big Mouth. Coming soon.”
Human Resources will arrive around the same time one of Netflix’s oldest and greatest animated hits, BoJack Horseman, comes to an end. The company has launched a number of other animated sitcoms aimed at adults over recent years, including Paradise PD, Matt Groening’s Disenchantment, and Bill Burr’s F is for Family.
