If you cannot get enough of shows such as Big Mouth, you are in for a party. Netflix has locked an agreement with Brutus Pink, the new production company from Big Mouth developers Jennifer Flackett, Nick Kroll, Mark Levin, and Andrew Goldberg. The multi-year deal will have the team making animated shows and movies for Netflix, comprising three extra seasons of Big Mouth further than the season three already planned for the fall.

It is a bittersweet moment for animation efforts by Netflix. The streaming behemoth has been inking various agreements for high-profile animated series, comprising ones for Cuphead and Jurassic World as well as one more round of Disenchantment by Matt Groening. Simultaneously, there have been some disturbances—it just called off Tuca & Bertie after the first season. Animation is having an ever-bigger job at Netflix, but agreements such as the one for Brutus Pink are far from assured.
On a related note, Netflix might have been ahead of the curve when it comes to video streaming, but the firm has found encountered challenges in recent times. Cost hikes have derailed its development, meaning it only gathered 50% of the 5 Million new users it assumed might sign up over the past quarter. With Apple TV+, Disney+, and HBO Max all on the edge, Netflix is finding new methods to attract new users to its service, comprising smartphone-only subscriptions, which have formally launched earlier in India.
Netflix first stated testing its $3.62 mobile-only plan at the beginning of 2019, providing TV movies and shows in 480p standard definition that might be seen on a single tablet or phone. The same applies to the newly-rolled out Mobile plant, but the firm seems to have heard costing concerns and decreased the monthly charge to $2.88.
