Jim Mickle created the American fantasy drama streaming television series Sweet Tooth. It is based on Jeff Lemire’s comic book of the same name and will release on Netflix on June 4, 2021. The series got renewed for a second season in July 2021. And now, we expect the release of Sweet Tooth season 3 very soon.
The show is the perfect balance of thrill and fantasy, and we cannot wait. Here’s everything we know about Sweet Tooth Season 2.

Sweet Tooth Season 2 Release Date
Season 2 of Sweet Tooth was kept under wraps for a long time by Netflix and the show’s producers, but considering how season one ended, we always assumed there was a plan in place.
Because what we’ve seen thus far represents only about a third of the source material, don’t be surprised if Sweet Tooth is renewed for at least two more seasons. The second season began filming in January 2022 and is slated to run until June 2022, so fans will have to wait a long time. We wouldn’t expect a Sweet Tooth season 2 release date until late 2022 or 2023, based on the theatrical releases of other Netflix shows.
We don’t anticipate any extra delays from Covid-19, given that the entire first season was shot in New Zealand during the epidemic, with the exception of the premiere episode, which was shot in 2019.
Sweet Tooth Season 2 Plot
Crucial storylines like “Will Gus and his mother reunite?” and “Will Jep and Aimee save the Hybrids?” are expected to be followed up in the second season. In the last episode of season one, everything comes together, but things aren’t looking good for our beloved heroes.
Abbot ultimately took control of the Preserve and captured Gus, which means Singh now has a large number of hybrids to experiment within the hopes of finding a cure. The kids are finally reunited, but it’ll only be a matter of time before they’re dissected as well.
Thankfully, Jepperd and Aimee have decided to work together to break into the lab and save their children. “Heal yourself. Our children will be returned to us tomorrow “she explains. Will they be able to succeed? There’s certainly more tale to tell, as comic book fans well know, however that doesn’t mean everyone will make it through season two alive.
There’s also the question of Gus’s “dead” mother to consider. Bear manages to reach her through the radio at the very end of season one’s conclusion. It turns out she’s in Alaska, which could very possibly be the source of the virus.
Is Gus’s mother on the lookout for a solution? Almost certainly. But it’s unclear if the show will stay on this scientific track or branch out into something more spiritual and religious, as the comics did. In any case, Alaska is an important place in the source material, so we expect it to play a bigger part in season two.
Sweet Tooth Season 2 Cast
With no big departures or deaths in the season 1 finale, we expect the cast to mostly remain the same. We expect to see the following cast members return for Sweet Tooth season two.
• 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
• Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear
One cast member who we won’t “see” but who will return is narrator James Brolin, the father of Josh Brolin.
Brolin said in an interview after the premiere of Season 1 that executive producer Robert Downey Jr. had offered the 81-year-old actor his first significant voice-over job in Sweet Tooth.
“I’ve known him [Downey Jr] for years. He’s come from here and there and done some absolutely beautiful work over the years. The early movies of his are just wonderful to re-see. And we’ve been friends for a while. And we are neighbors. That’s most of it and we had lunch one day and then Susan, his wife, is delightful and an effective go-getter producer,” he said.
“And they had this project before COVID. So it’s just incidental that it’s about a virus. I got a call months later … He didn’t call me directly. It’s, ‘We got a call from Robert, he wants you to narrate, they both do.’ And that’s it. You have no choice. And I went, ‘okay’.”
“And already, consequently, even before it opened, word got around that I was narrating and I think there was some voiceover in the trailer. And so I’ve got a big animated movie to do next and it’s all kind of snowballing. It’s crazy. You never know.”
We can expect to see plenty of fresh faces.
That’s all we know as of now. Stay tuned for more!
