Netflix's Sweet Tooth Cast Treats Fans to a Major Season 2 Update
After a period of virtual silence following the successful release of Netflix's Sweet Tooth last year, the cast of the post-apocalyptic show is back with a major update on Season 2.
In a warmly-narrated clip featuring behind-the-scenes footage and celebrations, the cast of Sweet Tooth announced Season 2 has officially wrapped filming. But that's not all Netflix had in store for audiences. The streaming giant also dropped the series' brand new title design.
When it was released, Sweet Tooth almost immediately gained a sizeable viewership and verged on reaching the same heights as Netflix's hit miniseries, The Queen's Gambit. Sweet Tooth, which is based on Vertigo's comic book, was viewed by 60 million Netflix accounts, while The Queen's Gambit was viewed by 62 million accounts in 2020.
Season 2 of Sweet Tooth was announced in July 2021 with a marketing campaign involving flyers and members of the press. Executive Producer, Writer, Director and Season 2 Showrunner Jim Mickle said in a statement at the time, "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."
Team Downey’s Susan Downey, Robert Downey Jr., as well as Amanda Burrell and Linda Moran will return as executive producers on Sweet Tooth Season 2. Team Downey's Evan Moore returns as Producer and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's Oanh Ly will join as a co-executive producer for Season 2.
Netflix's Sweet Tooth adapts Jeff Lemire's comic book series of the same name. It follows Gus, a young, inexperienced half-human, half-deer boy who journeys through a dangerous post-apocalyptic world where human/animal hybrids are feared and hunted by those who believe they may've been responsible for the terrible pandemic that laid ruin to the world ten years earlier. The series is notably more lighthearted than the comic book source material.
Lemire's comic books ran for 40 issues between 2009 and 2013. The story later continued with Sweet Tooth: The Return, a six-part sequel miniseries that published between 2020 and 2021. The sequel series took place 300 years after its predecessor.
Sweet Tooth Season 1 is available for streaming on Netflix.
