Big Mouth and Human Resources Renewed for New Seasons

Netflix’s original raunchy-emotion-filled cartoons Big Mouth and Human Resources just announced exciting news. Big Mouth‘s Instagram released a statement that not only will season 6 of the animated series will be coming to Netflix later this year but the show has also been renewed for season 7. Big Mouth‘s spin-off Human Resources which just premiered in March is also receiving another season much to fans’ delight. The two shows feature extremely crude jokes that push the boundaries of humor and what exactly can be portrayed through animation, but at their center are stories following very raw, brutally-honest narratives that audiences are all too familiar with. No exact release date has been revealed for Big Mouth season 6 but fans can expect to see the trailer dropping soon. No plot details have been revealed about season 6 either. Will the kids of Bridgeton middle finally enter high school? Will new creatures be introduced and then expanded upon in season 2 of Human Resources? Fans can predict future details will soon be revealed for both series and the next steps for each of their arcs. 

Stranger Things Season 4 Trailer Drops-Bringing the World Back To Hawkins

It’s been a while since Stranger Things has been on anyone’s minds but much like the creatures of the upside down, it’s always been here. The show premiered its first season all the way back in 2016 and took the internet by storm and now stands as one of Netflix’s most recognizable properties. The show launched the careers of young stars who are now in their late teens Noah Schnapp, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, and the show’s fan-favorite Millie Bobby Brown who plays the telepathic Eleven. The show has deferred pretty far from its original plot in season one with more characters, higher stakes, and a more expansive world with the characters now being relocated from Hawkins to avoid any more tragedies. However, the upside down is still lurking and ready to take on Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Will, and friends one more time as season 4 will be the show’s final season. 

The trailer featured a somber monologue delivered by Sadie Sink who plays tomboy Max, introduced in the second season. Max faced a personal loss last season along with many of the other characters. The third season generally ended on a cliffhanging, melancholy note but the new trailer has brought the hype back after almost three years of waiting patiently. The trailer, like trailers past for Stranger Things featured an immaculate song choice “Separate Ways” by Journey. The show also seems to be implementing an 80s horror aspect and delving into the realm of slasher film gore from the looks of the trailer. The final season will premiere its first half on Netflix on May 27th, 2022, and its second finale portion of the season on July 1st, 2022. 

Stats Show Netflix is at the Top of the Streaming World 

The subscriber numbers don’t lie. Netflix currently sits at 213.5 million subscribers worldwide. Some might think this is the logical conclusion due to the service being around the longest but the same statistics show that Hulu which has been around significantly longer than platforms like Disney+ and HBOMax, has less subscribers than those two services. So what is Netflix’s secret? How’ve they managed to stay atop the streaming world for so long? Their success can not only be attributed to its longevity but their expansive catalog including breakout hits Orange is the New Black, Unbreakable: Jimmy Schmidt, and more recently Tiger King and Squid Game. In fact, it’s reported that the success of Squid Game alone helped gain the platform 4 million additional subscribers. 

Among the statistics, Prime Video came in at 175 million though this is most likely equated with the amount of Amazon shoppers who subscribe to Amazon Prime and may not even use Prime Video often. Anime streaming service Crunchyroll came in at 120 million and Disney+ came in right behind it at 118.1 million. Out of the mainstreaming giants, Hulu came in with surprisingly low numbers at only 48 million. With Hulu’s new trend of developing originals based on captivating events such as The Dropout, The Girl From Plainville, and the new docu-series Captive Audience to premiere later this April, their numbers might see an incline. As for now, it seems that no service will ever come close to Netflix’s overarching success. Since the company’s humble beginnings as a DVD distribution service, Netflix has certainly paved the way for other platforms to make their mark in the entertainment world.  

Spy Kids Reboot Will Exclusively Premiere on Netflix 

Many of those who grew up in the earlier 2000s will remember the family drama and adventures of the Cortez family primarily focusing on the children Carmen (Alexa PenaVega) and Juni (Daryl Sabara). After discovering their parents’ true careers as secret agents the kids are thrust into the dangerous and action-packed world of supervillains, secret lairs, and gadgets. The franchise has four movies the first three centering around the original cast while the 4th movie since it came out a decade later since the first movie has an all-new cast. Original creator Robert Rodriguez is returning to produce the reboot and feature a new cast of multicultural characters. Casting and a release date for the film have not yet been announced but the news already has spurred nostalgia in fans who were kids themselves when the first movie premiered in 2001.
