Big Mouth is coming back for seconds.

Nick Kroll's animated comedy has been renewed for a second season at Netflix, it was announced Tuesday on the show's social media accounts.

The pickup comes roughly a month after the 10-episode first season launched on the streamer. Big Mouth hails from creators and real-life best friends Kroll (The League) and Andrew Goldberg (Family Guy), who created and executive produce the series with screenwriters and directors Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett (Nim's Island). Kroll also voices several characters, along with such comedians and actors as John Mulaney, Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate and Jessi Klein, among others. Netflix produces the show.

Big Mouth has earned favorable reviews thus far, including from The Hollywood Reporter, which called it "a terrific comedy that pushes the boundaries with thoughtfulness."

Centering on a group of teens going through puberty, the series even helped raise funds for Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria. When Kroll appeared on CBS' The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to promote the animated series, he dared celebrities to share awkward photos from their teen years as part of the #PuberMe challenge. The initiative has since raised more than $1 million for Puerto Rico relief.

Big Mouth joins a growing list of animated comedies at Netflix, which includes critical darlings BoJack Horseman and F Is for Family, as well as Castlevania and Neo Yokio.

The series also keeps Kroll and Mulaney at the streaming company, where their acclaimed two-man Broadway show Oh, Hello began streaming in June. (Mulaney has also done several stand-up specials for Netflix.)

Big Mouth is Kroll's latest TV creation following Comedy Central's The Kroll Show, which ended its three-season run in 2015.
