If you love shows like Big Mouth, this will be good news for you. Netflix has struck a deal with Brutus Pink, the new production house from Big Mouth creators Nick Kroll, Jennifer Flackett, Andrew Goldberg and Mark Levin. It is a multi-year arrangement that will have the team producing animated movies and shows for Netflix, including three more seasons of Big Mouth beyond the third season that is already lined up for the fall.
Right now we don’t have any info on what those other projects might entail. Netflix has been signing numerous deals for high-profile animated shows, including ones for Jurassic World and Cuphead. Then there is another round of Matt Groening’s Disenchantment.
However, at the same time, there has been some content that has been shuttered. Netflix just canceled Tuca & Bertie after one season. If you have been paying attention, it is clear that animation is playing an ever-larger role at Netflix, but deals like the one for Brutus Pink are far from guaranteed. It will be interesting to see what happens here. I’m sure we can look forward to more animation aside from these shows as well. Bojack Horseman has been very good for the site.
