Sweet Tooth is a Netflix Original fantasy drama series and it is based on the comic book series of the same name by Jeff Lemire that comes from DC Comic’s Vertigo imprint. This series became so popular in 2021 that according to Netflix, it was viewed by more than 60 million households!
Now one thing everyone is curious about is whether Sweet Tooth is coming up with a Season 2 or not because we can’t wait to see what more adventures this series will bring. Here’s everything you need to know about Sweet Tooth Season 2:

“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.” the showrunner Mickle said in a statement last year.
Sweet Tooth Season 2: Is there a release date yet?
Unfortunately, there is no release date for the second season as of now but we’re expecting new episodes somewhere around late 2022 or early 2023 as the filming was set to begin in January 2022 and it seems like the show will return to Auckland, New Zealand for the shooting of the upcoming season.
Sweet Tooth Season 2: What will be the plot?
The TV series is based on the comics by Jeff Lemire and follows almost the same story. At the end of the first season, we saw the Last Men have Gus in captivity, with other Hybrids planning to save him. Thankfully, Jepperd and Aimee are teaming up to break into the lab and save their children. “Heal up. Tomorrow we get our kids back,” she says.
But will they be successful or not is a question for the upcoming season. Gus’ mother is another story, Bear manages to make contact with her via radio and it turns out that she’s in Alaska and there’re chances that the virus originated from there. We expect to see more of Gus’ mother this season and is she the one looking for a cure?
Another question this season has to answer is why Birdie created human/deer Hybrid Gus (short for Genetic Unit Series 1), if/how his existence led to the birth of all of the other Hybrids, and if they’re connected to the Sick that has killed millions of people around the world. It will be interesting to see whether the show will move in a scientific direction or it’ll follow some religious path just like in the comics.
Sweet Tooth Season 2 Cast
All the main characters are expected to return for the new season including Christian Convery as Gus, Nonso Anozie as Tommy Jepperd, Adeel Akhtar as Dr. Singh, Will Forte as Gus’ father, Dania Ramirez as Aimee, Neil Sandilands as General Steven Abbot, and Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear.
New characters will be joining the series too and The National Foundation for Deaf & Hard of Hearing posted that the Sweet Tooth team were “looking for talented kids who may be deaf, hearing impaired HOH and kids versed in NZSL sign language” so, it’s clear that the makers are looking for new characters as well in the upcoming season.
