Sweet Tooth Season 2: Is it premiering in January 2023 or not?

The new year will definitely be full of surprises but the viewers will have to wait for some time as it has been brought to our attention that Sweet Tooth Season 2 wasn’t included in the list of new releases in January 2023 by Netflix. On the bright side, if you recall, in July 2021, the series was renewed for a second season. Now, after months of waiting for the filming for season 2 which took place in New Zealand between January 2022 to May 2022 has officially been completed which makes it more promising for the show to premiere on Netflix sooner than the viewers have been anticipating! 

On the other hand, the exact release date of the show has not been disclosed as of December 28, 2022. If we were to guess, we suspect Netflix is lining up Sweet Tooth Season 2 for a summer 2023 release, considering the last season came out on June 4, 2021. Of course, this is just speculation, and the fans should wait and keep a closer eye on the social media handles of the show to know about all the latest details and updates. Take a look at the official BTS clip from the set when the filming concluded with the star cast below on Netflix’s youtube channel:

Sweet Tooth Season 2: What to expect in the new season?

Sweet Tooth is a Netflix adaptation of a comic book and will have a second season which is based on the DC series by Jeff Lemire. The plot of the second season is expected to be continued from the first season which states: Ten years ago, “The Great Crumble” wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids – babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them.

After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer boy named Gus (Christian Convery) unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner named Jepperd (Nonso Anozie). Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what’s left of America in search of answers – about Gus’ origins, Jepperd’s past, and the true meaning of home. But their story is full of unexpected allies and enemies, and Gus quickly learns the lush, dangerous world outside the forest is more complex than he ever could have imagined.

In addition to this, Mickle said, “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.” In the meantime, we suggest that the fans should take a look at the official trailer below to recall the events which have happened over the episodes.
