Netflix has renewed Sweet Tooth for a second season. Sweet Tooth season 2 has officially been confirmed! Like Stranger Things five years ago, Netflix’s adaptation of Jeff Lemire’s post-apocalyptic Vertigo comic book exploded out of nowhere to become a massive hit for the streaming platform – and now Sweet Tooth season 2 is one of the most hotly anticipated TV series on the planet. The family adventure series produced by Robert Downy Jr. will begin filming again in New Zealand in 2022. Here’s an updated guide to what we know so far about Sweet Tooth season 2 including what new characters are going to feature when production starts, what we can expect and more.
Especially since the first ended on a major cliffhanger (this is your official spoiler alert for series 1 – you have been warned). Here’s everything we know about series 2 of Netflix’s Sweet Tooth.
What will happen in Sweet Tooth series 2?
At the end of series 1 Gus (Christian Convery) and his fellow hybrids were at a critical point in the story, with their fates left on a major cliffhanger after they were captured by General Abbot and scientist accomplice Dr Singh. So, series 2 will have to pick up where this story left off, with the hybrids fighting for freedom in the midst of the post-apocalyptic pandemic.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in series 1, Bear had managed to track down Gus’s mother despite the fact she was thought to be dead. It turns out she was exiled to Alaska – where the sickness is thought to have started.
Who has been cast in Sweet Tooth series 2?
While we have a confirmed second series, we don’t yet have a confirmed cast. But, given the myriad of cliffhangers season 1 ended on, we can pretty much assume that the main cast will be returning for the second instalment, including Christian Convery as Gus and Game of Thrones star Nonso Anozie as Tommy Jepperd.
When is Sweet Tooth series 2 being released?
Although the eight-part series has been officially confirmed by Netflix, we’re unlikely to get any teaser trailers or even a hint of a release date for some time. However, given that the first series was out in June 2021, and the streamer tends to maintain a year-long production schedule where possible, we’re probably looking at June 2022 for this.
Sweet Tooth will return for season 2
To get a renewal at Netflix, show’s need to put in the numbers and while we never know the exact figures show’s need to hit, Sweet Tooth clearly met the right level and hence, was renewed for a second season.
Sweet Tooth will appear at DC Fandome in October 2021
Before we dive into production and new character details for season 2, we want to touch on the fact that Sweet Tooth is among the titles mentioned for DC’s Fandome.
For those unfamiliar, DC Fandome is a fan event that gives first looks and news surrounding all things DC.
Scheduled to take place on October 16th, 2021, this years event will see Sweet Tooth exhibit.
When will Sweet Tooth season 2 be on Netflix?
