Bob's Burgers creator Loren Bouchard has another animated comedy on the horizon called The Great North, and a new trailer for the series has revealed that some big names have joined the voice cast.

A new teaser trailer for the show launched over the weekend and confirmed some of the show's casting details, before it was later posted to the show's official Twitter account on Monday (November 2), too.

The Great North takes place in Alaska and follows single dad Beef Tobin as he juggles his work and family life while trying to raise four kids.

Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman leads as Beef Tobin, and Beef's kids are voiced by Saturday Night Live's Will Forte, SNL and Bob's Burgers' Jenny Slate,Inside Amy Schumer's Aparna Nancherla and I Love You, Beth Cooper's Paul Rust, who play Wolf, Judy, Moon and Ham Tobin respectively.

Outside of the family, we've got The Daily Show with Trevor Noah's Dulcé Sloan as Wolf's fiancé Honeybee, Will & Grace star Megan Mullally as Judy's boss Alyson, and Alanis Morissette as herself – but in this she's a figment of Judy's imagination.

The show, which was announced in 2019, is created by Bouchard, Wendy Molyneux, Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin and Minty Lewis, and is set to premiere in February 2021 as part of Fox's Animation Domination block early next year.

The network has already ordered a second season of the show.

"Wendy, Lizzie, Minty and Loren delivered a show that embodies our animation brand so strongly, they left us no choice but to give this stellar series an early renewal ahead of its midseason debut," said Fox executive Michael Thorn said in a statement (via Entertainment Weekly).

"Of course, we'd also like to thank our friends at 20th, who continue to be tremendous partners."

At the end of September, Bob's Burgers was renewed for a 12th and 13th season, while Family Guy was given a 19th and 20th season order as part of Fox's commitment to adult animation.
