The Netflix show Sweet Tooth finds its main characters in a post-apocalyptic world where something has caused children to be born with half-human, half-animal attributes. The endearing main character, Gus (Christian Convery), goes on an epic cross-country journey with his protector Tommy Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) to find a sanctuary.
The first season has been met with positive reviews, and now fans are wondering about a Season 2. Read on to find out everything we know about Sweet Tooth Season 2.
So, is there going to be a 'Sweet Tooth' Season 2?
The show revolves around an apocalyptic event known as "The Great Crumble." A devastating virus known as H5G9 swept the land. Every child born after the virus's deadly outbreak was a human-animal hybrid, and no one knows if the mutations are the cause of the virus or the result.
There are mixed feelings about the mutation. A villainous group known as "The Last Men" hunts hybrids, but there are also merry bands of animal-costumed protectors. It is suggested the hybrid children could even hold a cure to the deadly virus, but an exploration of this hypothesis would require inhumane experimentation and is quickly brushed aside.
The unique plot combined with a storybook-like atmosphere certainly makes it a compelling story, but will Netflix give Sweet Tooth a Season 2?
Yes! Netflix has officially announced a second installment of the comic book adaptation.
“It’s been equally thrilling and heartwarming to experience how people around the world have been falling in love with our deer-boy," showrunner Jim Mickle said, per Deadline. "We couldn’t be more excited to continue our collaboration with Netflix and keep following Gus and his friends on their extraordinary journey.”
What's the release date for 'Sweet Tooth' Season 2?
Since it was just announced, there's no official release date yet. Hopefully, filming will start soon. Fansided speculates that the earliest we could see Season 2 hit Netflix is the summer of 2022, but if production hits a snag (like, say, complications from a real global pandemic), we could be looking at late 2022 or early 2023.
Who is the narrator of 'Sweet Tooth?' This famous figure has a soothing voice.
Fans have been wondering about the narrator of Sweet Tooth, who presents a soothing, storybook-style atmosphere. The narrator is none other than James Brolin, actor and husband to Barbara Streisand. James is known for his roles on shows such as Marcus Welby, M.D., Hotel, and more. He is also the father of actor Josh Brolin, known for his work as Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
James's steady bass guides audience members through Sweet Tooth and admittedly, does sound close to his son's rumbling voice. Sadly, James does not make a physical appearance in the show. Sweet Tooth's cast is smaller and features the work of Adeel Akhtar as Dr. Aditya Singh, Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear, Dania Ramirez as Aimee Eden, Aliza Vellani as Rani Singh, and Will Forte as Gus's father.
While we anxiously wait for the second season of Sweet Tooth, maybe fans can pick up the original comic by Jeff Lemire and see where a storyline for Season 2 could go — although it's worth noting that there are many differences between the comics and the series!
Sweet Tooth Season 1 is now available for streaming exclusively on Netflix.
