Big Mouth returned for its fourth season on Friday (4 December), with a host of new actors lending their voices to the show for the first time.
First airing in 2017, Netflix’s animated comedy series follows a group of teenagers as they struggle with puberty.
The show is centred around Nick (Nick Kroll) and Andrew (John Mulaney), with Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph and Jordan Peele also voicing regular characters.
Here are some of the new voices you can expect to hear in Big Mouth season four…
