Netflix animation Big Mouth officially returns for its fourth season on December 4, and there's a brand new trailer to clamp your eyes on.

According to Deadline, the fresh batch of episodes takes a look at "the anxiety of growing up, of figuring out who you are, discovering yourself and accepting yourself".

Before the gang eventually heads to eighth grade, the season kicks off at summer camp.

In light of the Black Lives Matter movement, series masterminds Nick Kroll, Jennifer Flackett, Andrew Goldberg and Mark Levin revealed that the character of Missy would be recast.

"After thoughtful discussion with us and our Black collaborators, Jenny Slate has decided, and we wholeheartedly agree, that Missy on Big Mouth should be voiced by a Black actor," their joint statement began.

"We sincerely apologise for and regret our original decision to cast a white actor to voice a biracial character. We made a mistake, took our privilege for granted, and we're working hard to do better moving forward."

Big Mouth season four premieres on Friday, December 4 on Netflix.
