‘Sweet Tooth’: Netflix Releases Trailer & Sets June Premiere For 3rd & Final Season

Follow Gus on one last adventure

by Dave Elliott

Netflix has released a trailer and set a June premiere date for the 3rd and final season of the wonderful fantasy drama Sweet Tooth.

Based on characters created for DC/Vertigo Comics by Jeff Lemire, ‘Sweet Tooth’ is set ten years after “The Great Crumble”, an event which 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.

Season one introduced us to a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus (Christian Convery). After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, he 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.

As we head into Season 3, Birdie tries to uncover the mysterious origins of the deadly Sick, whilst Dr. Singh (Adeel Akhtar) joins Gus, Jepperd, and company on their trek to Alaska, but he might hold his own dangerous beliefs about Gus and his role in reversing the virus. Meanwhile, a new threat emerges in the form of Helen Zhang (Rosalind Chao), her daughter Rosie (Kelly Marie Tran), and the ferocious Wolf Boys, who seek to restart human birth and view Gus as the solution to their plans. With the clock to find answers running out, alliances are tested and destinies intertwine, all leading to a thrilling climax that’ll determine the fate of humanity and hybrids. Who will survive?..

‘Sweet Tooth’ comes from Jim Mickle (‘Hap and Leonard’, ‘In the Shadow of the Moon’, ‘Cold In July’) who serve as writer, showrunner and exec producer. Team Downey’s Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey and Amanda Burrell, alongside Linda Moran also exec produce. Team Downey in association with Warner Bros. Television are the studios.

The decision to end the show at season three was a creative one by Mickle, not a cancellation by Netflix. “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,” said Mickle. “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.”

Sweet Tooth‘ Seasons 3 premieres Thursday, 6th June 2024 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
