Netflix could be adding another great animated show to its roster.

Take a look at the NSFW (you’ll see why) trailer for Big Mouth, an upcoming coming-of-age animated series from Nick Kroll (Kroll Show, The League) and Andrew Goldberg (Family Guy).

The series follows a group of young teens, including best friends Andrew (voiced by John Mulaney) and Nick (Kroll), as they deal with that terrifying time in a young person’s life: puberty. Kroll also voices the Hormone Monster, whose job it is to provide those weird emotions and physical changes.

It looks very funny, energetic, edgy, and absolutely bonkers. Brutal honesty looks to be the name of the game here, with a ton of uncomfortable memories provided to viewers in just the trailer alone. Fingers crossed this slots in nicely among great adult-oriented animated Netflix shows such as Bojack Horseman and F is for Family.

All ten episodes of Big Mouth, which also features voice work from Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate and Jessi Klein, will arrive on September 29.

Synopsis for Big Mouth:

Big Mouth is a 10-episode, half-hour edgy adult animated comedy from real-life best friends Nick Kroll (Kroll Show, The League) and Andrew Goldberg (Family Guy) about the glorious nightmare that is teenaged puberty.

Comedian John Mulaney (John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid, Saturday Night Live) lends his voice to the character of Andrew, while Kroll (who serves as co-creator, executive producer) voices many including best friend Nick. Maya Rudolph (Maya & Marty, Bridesmaids), Jason Mantzoukas (The League, Lady Dynamite), Jordan Peele (Keanu, Key and Peele), Fred Armisen (Portlandia, Documentary Now!), Jenny Slate (Girls, Lady Dynamite) and Jessi Klein (Inside Amy Schumer) are among those who lend their voice to the series.

Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg and screenwriter-directors Mark Levin & Jennifer Flackett are all creators and executive producers on the series. Big Mouth is a Netflix production.
