Big Mouth is based around a group of teenagers with Hormone Monsters influencing their actions. Whilst Human Resources is based on the creatures themselves, exploring what happens when humans are not around.
Season 5 of Big Mouth wrapped in November 2021 and was already confirmed for Season 6 (still coming).
“From the inventive minds that brought us the award-winning adult animation favorite Big Mouth comes the even edgier and adult-ier Human Resources,” reads the synopsis. “The spin-off pulls back the curtain on the daily lives of the creatures – Hormone Monsters, Depression Kitties, Shame Wizards and many more – that help humans journey through every aspect of life from puberty to parenthood to the twilight years. It quickly becomes clear that though the protagonists are creatures, they have a lot of humanity themselves.”
The teaser features some familiar faces that are part of Big Mouth’s main cast, such as Mona the Hormone Monstress (voiced by Thandiwe Newton). Other Big Mouth recurring characters featured in the new show are Simon Sex (voiced by Jemaine Clement), Tito the Anxiety Mosquito (voiced by Maria Bamford), and Gavin the Hormone Monster (voiced by Bobby Cannavale).
Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, Jennifer Flackett, and Kelly Galuska, the creative team behind Big Mouth, are all set as executive producers on Human Resources.
The first season which contains 10 episodes is now streaming on Netflix.
