The graphic novel that served as the inspiration for the film Sweet Tooth was penned by Jeff Lemire and published by DC Comics. The writer Jim Mickle was responsible for adapting the show for television, and Mickle will serve as one of the showrunners for the upcoming second season alongside Beth Schwartz.
The following people are responsible for producing the show: Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, Amanda Burrell, and Linda Moran Jr.
The animated series debuted on Netflix on June 4th, 2021. It was produced by Warner Bros. Television, in conjunction with DC Entertainment and Team Downey.
The events of the series take place in a dystopian future in which a global pandemic has killed out the majority of the world’s inhabitants. In addition to this, hybrid offspring start to appear. Gus, a little boy who is half-human and half-deer who lives in a secluded region with his father, is the main character of our story.
Sweet Tooth Season 2 Release Date
Before season 2 of Sweet Tooth comes out on Netflix, we think it will take between six and eight months to finish post-production. Before the first season was put on Netflix, it took about six months to finish making it.
If the post-production process takes six months, the second season might come out in December 2022. But if post-production takes seven to eight months, the movie might not come out until January or February 2023.
Sweet Tooth Season 2 Expected Cast
Even though it has not been officially announced, we anticipate that the Sweet Tooth season 2 cast will consist of the following individuals:
- Nonso Anozie as Tommy Jepperd/Big Man
- Christian Convery as Gus/Sweet Tooth
- Adeel Akhtar as Dr. Aditya Singh
- Aliza Vellani as Rani Singh
- Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear/Rebecca Walker
- Dania Ramirez as Aimee Eden
- Neil Sandilands as General Douglas Abbot (aka the General)
- Naledi Murray as Wendy
- Will Forte as Bubba
- Amy Seimetz as Birdie
- James Brolin as the Narrator
Sweet Tooth Season 2 Expected Plot
We have a broad idea of the topics that will be discussed in the second season of Sweet Tooth. Even though the television show does not adhere to the comics quite as closely as they did, it is still rather depressing.
After the first season, Gus is held captive by The Last Men, while other Hybrids are hatching a plan to break him out of captivity.
We are aware that his mother is now in Alaska, but we do not have any information regarding the reason for her visit to the state. Following that, we have three stories that are tied to one another called “Big Man,” “Pigtail,” and “Bear with Gus.”
There is a possibility that the second season will take some bold creative risks and follow a different story arc. The virus that caused such changes in the human race is not revealed to the readers of the comics until issue 26, however, there is a possibility that it will be revealed in season 2 of the television show.
Rating and Reviews
Because the first season of Sweet Tooth was received so well by both critics and viewers, earning a fresh rating of 98% on Rotten Tomatoes and a score of 88% from viewers, there is little doubt that excitement will be high when the second season finally premieres.
In our review for the first season, which we rated 5 out of 5, we stated: “Showrunner Jim Mickle has succeeded in giving viewers who are already worn out by actively living in a pandemic a world that they can buy into while also bringing the world’s dramatic and frightening aspects to the forefront of the show.
Masks and temperature checks, both of which are commonplace in this society, do not have the effect of calming the atmosphere because they serve instead as a constant reminder of the danger. It’s also a planet filled with cute creatures that combine human and animal DNA and get into all sorts of mischief.”
