Netflix renews 'Sweet Tooth' for season 2

Netflix has announced that the post-apocalyptic fantasy drama series Sweet Tooth is getting a second season.

On their social media accounts, Netflix posted a video featuring several cast members opening a package with a giant bar of chocolate with “Sweet Tooth season two” embossed on the bar. “We are so excited to be continuing the Sweet Tooth journey with all of you. There’s still so much more we need to know,” the cast said in the clip.

According to a Variety report, the second season will have eight hour-long episodes. Series showrunner Jim Mickle said, “It’s been equally thrilling and heartwarming to experience how people around the world have been falling in love with our deer-boy. We couldn’t be more excited to continue our collaboration with Netflix and keep following Gus and his friends on their extraordinary journey.”

Based on the DC comics from Jeff Lemire, Sweet Tooth takes place ten years after “The Great Crumble” wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids – babies born half-human and half-animal. Not knowing if these hybrids are the result of the deadly virus that happened during “The Great Crumble,” several remaining full humans, known as the “Last Men,” hunt and kill the hybrids.

Gus (Christian Convery), a hybrid deer-boy who lived safely in his secluded forest home, unexpectedly meets loner Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) who eventually becomes his protector as they venture into an adventure together.

Sweet Tooth also stars Adeel Akhtar, Stefania LaVie Owen, Aliza Vellani, Will Forte,  Neil Sandilands, Dania Ramirez, and James Brolin. It is produced by Susan Downey & Robert Downey Jr. The first season premiered in June 2021.

A premiere date for season two has yet to be announced. –
