Netflix‘s latest major comic book adaptation, the attention-grabbing sweet tooth series, featuring the science fiction and fantasy genre, was released on Netflix on June 4, 2021. 96% of users liked the show on Netflix. It also has a rating of 8.2 points on IMDB; 98% of critics score on Rotten tomatoes and an audience score of 92%. With these scores we can say that season 1 is currently making a fascinating impression. The fact that two of the producers Robert Downey Jr. and being his wife Susan Downey is another factor that makes the series appealing to fans. Netflix has changed a lot from Jeff Lemire’s original comic, which has the same name as the show. The series tells the story of the adventures of Gus. He is half human and half deer. He meets a traveler named Jefferd. He begins to question their past and sets out to find his family in a post-apocalyptic world. After the first season, fans started looking for a second season. So is there an extension by Netflix? Let’s remember the series and take a look at everything that is known about the second season†
What is Sweet Tooth’s storyline and what has happened so far?
The world has ended with a leftover disaster. A deadly virus called H5G9 has destroyed most of humanity. The remaining population struggles to survive with the main problem of strange human-animal hybrid babies that have begun to emerge in the decade following the apocalyptic plague. Some people, like Last Man, are trying to track down the hybrids; others choose to rescue and protect the hapless children. The story centers on the adventures of a human-deer hybrid named Gus and his adult friend Tommy Jepperd. They travel around and get into all kinds of trouble. The entire season has been an endless series of discoveries for Gus, who started the show with barely any world knowledge. His journeys with Jepperd are full of tension and danger. However, the world came crashing down when Gus learned that he is a genetic experiment and that his alleged biological parents, Birdie and Bubba, were actually attached to the lab. Gus learns that he was created. General Douglas Abbott’s last men also take over Aimee’s domain and capture the hybrid children. The children are now prisoners and subjected to experiments by the conflicted doctor Singh, who actually dislikes what he is doing, but continues to search desperately for a cure for the sick.
Despite all these terrible things, there is a glimmer of hope. Gus is happy to find other hybrids. Thanks to his ability to speak, he saves himself from the scalpel. In addition, a cliffhanger at the end of the episode makes it clear that Aimee and Jepperd are gearing up for the rescue missions. The season finale, titled The Big Man, centers on Tommy Jepperd and his past trauma. We also learned that when Tommy’s wife gave birth amid the apocalyptic chaos, he panicked and ran away from her and their child. Seeing that the baby was a human-sheep hybrid, he never looked for one of them again. His cowardice and loss weigh heavily on him. So he decides to help Gus. It is an attempt to rectify its past mistakes. Things get even more tragic when the Last Man ruins the moment by shooting Jepperd. Fortunately, Aimee is able to save him before he succumbs to the injury. Bear has a hard time at the end of Sweet Tooth season 1. Viewers can now see how horrible her life has been. We learn her backstory, starting with her real name Rebecca Walker, aka Becky, and why she ended up in the Animal Army. Bear lost her parents to the sick, had her hybrid sister taken away, and wandered around until she met Tiger and started her new life. Later we learn that Wendy is Bear’s long-lost sister. It is also very surprising to see that Gus’ mother is still alive. The potential Sweet Tooth season 2 just got a very powerful player.
Will there be a second season of Sweet Tooth?
The filming of the first season started in 2019 and we watched it two years later. Even though a season is 2 renewal certainly seems to the public, Netflix has not officially announced the new season yet. Sweet Tooth was the most-watched item on Netflix during its premiere weekend. So it’s not clear yet if there’s a second season of the series, but it looks promising. The comic’s story spanned over 40 issues, and the show’s first season only looked at the very beginning of that journey. It can be seen that the first series only took up a third of the original story, meaning there could easily be at least two more seasons. Since there were eight episodes in the first season, the second season usually consists of eight episodes as well.
When is the expected release date?
Netflix has not yet renewed the series for a second season, so there are estimated dates rather than an exact date. We can expect Sweet Tooth Season 2 in December 2022 or January 2023† In addition, we can see the trailer in October or November 2022. If the show is renewed soon, Sweet Tooth season 2 could be good to start as early as mid-2022. We hope that the dates will become clear in the coming days after extension. Sweet Tooth Season 2 should ideally start filming as soon as possible to convincingly pick up where the cliffhanger left off, as child actors age faster and more noticeably than adults.
