A couple of months ago, Fox announced a new animated series from the creator of Bob’s Burgers called The Great North. The series stars Nick Offerman, Jenny Slate, Will Forte, Megan Mullally, and more. The series looks like it has a lot of fun potential. Well, Fox has given the series an official premiere date of February 14, 2021, at 8:30 PM ET/PT. In addition, it was announced that the series has already been renewed for a second season. This must be quite the show.
THE GREAT NORTH follows the Alaskan adventures of the Tobin family, as a single dad, BEEF (Nick Offerman, “Parks and Recreation,” “Making It”), does his best to keep his weird bunch of kids close – especially his only daughter, JUDY (Jenny Slate, BOB’S BURGERS), whose artistic dreams lead her away from the family fishing boat and into the glamorous world of the local mall. Rounding out the family are Judy’s older brother, WOLF (Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth”); his fiancé, HONEYBEE (Dulcé Sloan, “The Daily Show”); her middle brother, HAM (Paul Rust, “Love”); and ten-year-old-going-on-fifty little brother, MOON (Aparna Nancherla, “A Simple Favor”). While the children’s mother is not in the picture, Judy seeks guidance from her new boss, ALYSON (Megan Mullally, “Will & Grace”), and her imaginary friend, ALANIS MORISSETTE (guest-voicing as herself), who appears to her in the Northern Lights.
I am personally excited as I greatly enjoy Bob’s Burgers and would love to see something else from the team.
