Ayo Edebiri has been cast as Missy on Netflix’s Emmy Nominated adult-animated series Big Mouth, replacing Jenny Slate who has voiced the character since season one.
Fans should expect to first hear Edebiri's voice, Missy, in the penultimate episode of season four. She will continue to voice Missy in the final episode and for future seasons.
Earlier, Edebiri joined the Big Mouth writer’s room for season five. Season four of Big Mouth will premiere in Fall 2020 (very likely October).
The series has already been renewed by Netflix through season six.
Edebiri is a fast-rising writer/performer who is currently a Co-Producer on Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s new animated series for Netflix, MULLIGAN. Ayo is also upcoming as Hattie in S2 of the Apple series DICKINSON, a role that was created specifically for her after she joined the writers' room. Previous writing credits include BIG MOUTH and SUNNYSIDE. Ayo is also voicing the lead role in the upcoming animated Netflix series WE LOST OUR HUMAN opposite Ben Schwartz and co-hosts the podcast ICONOGRAPHY for Forever Dog. She was also selected by Comedy Central as one of their “Up Next” Comics to showcase at Clusterfest and toured with Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness.
