Netflix has just guaranteed that one of its original animated comedies will be sticking around for several more years.

This morning, the streaming service officially handed out a massive 3-season renewal to “Big Mouth,” which will carry the animated series through its sixth season. In addition, the show’s key creative team have gotten together to form a new production company named Brutus Pink, and have signed a new multi-year deal with Netflix to continue producing more adult animated projects for the streaming platform.

Created by Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett, “Big Mouth” follows a group of teenage friends as they find their lives upended by the wonders and horrors of puberty. Its voice cast includes Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jenny Slate, Jason Mantzoukas, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Jordan Peele, and more.

“Big Mouth brilliantly captures the most awkward phase in a person’s life, puberty, in a hilarious yet heartwarming way,” said Mike Moon, Head of Adult Animation for Netflix. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue our relationship with Brutus Pink and bring more stories, more humor, and more hormones to Netflix members around the world.”

“Netflix has given us the best creative experience imaginable, and we’ve been able to build an amazing community of talented writers, actors, producers and artists,” said the Brutus Pink team. “We’re thrilled to be continuing with everyone for years to come.”

“Big Mouth” will return with its third season later this fall.
