Netflix announced that there be a 'Sweet Tooth' Season 3.

On May 3, 2023, Netflix confirmed that Sweet Tooth has been renewed for a third season (how exciting). This doesn't come as a surprise considering the show repeatedly landed on Netflix's Global Top 10 list after Season 2 released. From May 8–14 alone, Sweet Tooth garnered 11.01 million hours of watch time.

What will 'Sweet Tooth' Season 3 be about?

Although Sweet Tooth was renewed for a third season, it will be the final curtain call for the series. The show is based on a series of comic books that ran a total of 40 issues. So far, the show has covered roughly two-thirds of the plot from those comics.

A third season will be all that's needed to wrap up the story as it was told in the comics. And thanks to a Netflix press release in which the streamer referred to Season 3 as an "epic conclusion," we now know it will mark the end of the series.

Season 2 of Sweet Tooth ends with Gus and the other children setting off for Alaska, where Gus believes he might be able to find his mother Birdie. It seems evident (and has been confirmed), that the third season will track that journey. Jim Mickle told Netflix that Season 3 was produced in New Zealand, although the story will pick up in Alaska.

In terms of the story line, Mickle told Tudum, “[It’s] another road trip story like Season 1, but in a very different way. Season 3 is an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic tale. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in Season 1 or 2.”

Fans of the show can also expect for Season 3 to be a little "darker."
