Sweet Tooth Season 3 Release Date: Is it premiering in September 2023 or not?

This year has definitely been 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 3 wasn’t included in the list of new releases in September 2023 by Netflix. Despite it being renewed for a third and final season by Netflix back on May 3, 2023, with reports confirming in the same month that the third and final season has already been filmed in New Zealand, this made fans more optimistic about the fact that the show will premiere on Netflix sooner than the viewers have been anticipating!

Sadly, the reality seems to be something else, as it’s been months, and the exact release date of Sweet Tooth Season 3 has not been disclosed. But, to keep fans updated with the recent developments, the creators have given a schedule and confirmed that Sweet Tooth Season 3 will premiere sometime around 2024 on Netflix! This is great news for the fans. As for the time being, they will have to wait and keep a closer eye on the social media handles of the show to know about all the latest details and updates that will be released in the near future. Also, check out the official post confirming the renewal of the third season quote, “The Final Season is coming.”

Sweet Tooth Season 3 Plot: What to expect?

For the final season, we will be venturing to Alaska as the epic conclusion to Gus’ journey! New reports have confirmed that the third season is an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic tale. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in Season 1 or Season 2, which was confirmed by Jim Mickle.

“In a lot of ways, it’s exactly the story that I imagined we would tell and in a lot of ways it takes on its own life,” Mickle told Netflix of Season 3, which has already been produced in New Zealand. “At the beginning, I think you set out to tell these landmark pieces of Gus’ story and the big pieces of the comic book, but the beauty of long-form storytelling and Gus’ journey over 24 episodes is the characters themselves tell you what they want to be. The crew and cast bring so much depth and point of view to who the characters are and where they’ve come from and where they’re going.”

*Spoiler Alert*

If you recall, the second season’s finale, “The Ballad of the Last Men,” ended with Gus, Jepperd, Wendy (Naledi Murray), and Bear (Stefania LaVie Owen) setting out for icy Alaska — and as per Netflix Tudum, that’s where Season 3 picks up! “[It’s] another road trip story like Season 1, but in a very different way,” Mickle tells Tudum. “Season 3 is an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic tale. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in Season 1 or 2.”

Convery also told Tudum that we’ll also see a tonal shift! “Season 3 is darker than Season 2,” said the star. “Gus is growing alongside the series, starting to mature as the themes get darker. There’s a lot he has to deal with, and it’s peak Sweet Tooth intensity.” “In Season 3, everybody is dealing with some kind of wound or emotional loss, whether that was somebody in their life or a part of themselves,” Mickle told Netflix. “Everybody is looking inward and looking to move on and ultimately learning that life doesn’t stop. You have to keep putting one foot in front of another.”

Sweet Tooth Season 3 Cast: Who will reprise their roles?

The main cast members who will be in the final season are as follows: Nonso Anozie as Thomas Jepperd, Christian Convery as Gus, Adeel Akhtar as Dr. Aditya Singh, Stefania LaVie Owen as Becky, Aliza Vellani as Rani Singh, Will Forte as Richard Fox, Naledi Murray as Wendy Eden, Christopher Cooper Jr. as Teddy Turtle, Yonas Kibreab as Finn Fox, Rosalind Chao as Mrs. Zhan, Amy Seimetz as Birdie, Cara Gee as Siana, Ayazhan Dalabayeva as Nuka, and James Brolin as the Narrator. 

In addition to this, the show has expanded its cast for the final season, with the addition of two new series regulars: Cara Gee (The Expanse) as Siana and Ayazhan Dalabayeva as Nuka. You can also expect to see more of Rosalind Chao’s Zhang, the sole remaining member of the Three, and Amy Seimetz’s Birdie, Gus’ mother, because both stars have been upgraded to series regulars, too.

For the crew members of the show, executive producers of Sweet Tooth are Susan Downey and Amanda Burrell, who are excited about how the show’s final chapter sees a rise in tension. “The ticking clock of, ‘Can they achieve their goal before it’s too late?’ is ratcheted up,” Downey tells Tudum. Burrell adds, “It just keeps amping up. It feels like a culmination emotionally and you get to see all of these characters together and their philosophies really at odds. Tension is high.”
