The Great North season 4: preview

Welcome back to Lone Moose, Alaska, where more outrageous antics lie in store for the Tobin family. With a voice cast including the likes of Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Jenny Slate (Big Mouth), and Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth), this spiritual successor to Bob’s Burgers promises to leave you with a warm, cosy afterglow. Follow our guide below for how to watch The Great North season 4 online and from anywhere now.

Created by Wendy and Lizzie Molyneux, the Emmy Award-winning writers of Bob’s Burgers, The Great North shares that show’s charming, pun-loving and compassionate spirit, although it’s got its own utterly unique milieu and heartwarming family dynamic.

Offerman plays divorced fisherman Beef Tobin. His eldest son, the eager to please Wolf, is voiced by Forte, Slate is his daughter Judy, and Aparna Nancherla is Moon, Beef’s fearless, onesie-wearing 10-year-old. Ham is the out-and-proud middle son, voiced by Paul Rust, while Dulcé Sloan (The Daily Show) is Honeybee, a Fresno native and Wolf’s adventurous wife.

This tight-knit family have shared all kinds of antics: including getting trapped at the school prom after an explosion of rotting meat drew the attention of a pack of wild bears. Season 4’s misadventures, including Beef’s “sexcapades” being leaked to the local papers, are proving to be just as lovably ridiculous.

The cherry on the cake of Fox’s Animation Domination lineup, The Great North has been called "comfort viewing of the highest caliber" by Collider. If that sounds like your kind of show, read on below for our guide explaining how to watch The Great North season 4 online right now.

In Canada, there’s previously been a hiatus of about 6 months between The Great North’s broadcast on FOX, and its addition to Disney Plus. As we haven’t heard anything to the contrary, fans of the hit show should expect a similar wait before new episodes are ready to stream on Disney Plus.

Can I watch The Great North season 4 online in Australia?

Australian fans are in the same situation as detailed above. There’s been no release date announced for The Great North season 4 in Australia, so it could be some months before new episodes are available online to animation enthusiasts.

When the new season finally does arrive, however, streaming platforms Binge and Foxtel Now should receive The Great North season 4, as all three prior seasons are currently available to stream there. Binge is very temptingly priced at AUS$10 a month, with new customers entitled to a generous 14-day FREE trial.

Alternatively, Foxtel Now offers more of a full package, cable-like experience, with a lineup of 70+ channels and a 10-day free trial available to first-time customers. It’s AU$25 for the Foxtel Now Essentials Base pack, which you’ll need to watch episodes of The Great North.

Finally – if you’re abroad in Australia, you’ll likely require an Australian phone number and/or method of payment to sign-up to Binge or Foxtel. It may be less hassle to simply download a VPN and connect to your VOD service back home.
