The Family Friendly, Kid-Appropriate Sweet Tooth Is Getting A Season 2!
The premise for the Netflix original series based on a comic book, Sweet Tooth, feels contradictory. It’s a post-apocalyptic show about how people turn on each other when the world turns to hell, even resorting to killing one another. Then there are these cute animal-human hybrid kids who may or may not be responsible for the end of the world. But the last remaining people are hunting, killing and experimenting on them. Oh! And I totally forgot: the whole thing is totally family-friendly and kid-appropriate. Yea, you heard me. But the even more surprising part of all of that is that it all totally works. And it works brilliantly. And now, we hear that Sweet Tooth season 2 is confirmed. This is very good news, especially given how season 1 of Sweet Tooth ended.
Sweet Tooth Season 1 Was Insanely Good

I can’t say enough nice things about Sweet Tooth. You only have to read my Sweet Tooth season 1 review to find out just how much I liked the show. An end of the world series from the perspective of a cute li’l kid is kind of ingenious. It’s equal parts terrifying, sweet and ominous. The light-hearted moments are heartwarming, while the horribly suspenseful parts are enough to keep you on edge. It’s honestly a great little show, and I’m glad that we now know that Sweet Tooth season 2 is confirmed.
Sweet Tooth season 1 ended on an amazing cliffhanger. While also telling the story of this larger world and its main story, the focus of Sweet Tooth is this little boy named Gus. Gus (Christian Convery) is one of the hybrid kids, that the world believes caused a pandemic that ended the world. But on a smaller scale, Gus is in search of his own origins, more specifically, his mom. The show follows Gus and his journey against the larger story of this new world and how he fits into it. Sweet Tooth season 2 will continue that story, and hopefully taking it on new and exciting paths.

A press release from Netflix confirms that Sweet Tooth season 2 is coming. The series based on a Jeff Lemire comic book from DC Comics can now finish that awesome cliffhanger, which definitely makes me relieved. More often than not, (Netflix) shows that end like that, run the risk of cancellation. With the Sweet Tooth season 2 confirmation, fans can rest easy that the story that was set up, will see some sort of resolution. At least for one more season.
Sweet Tooth season 2 will have a lot to focus on. With Gus finding out about his origins, he’ll need to put it all into context. Captured and alone, Gus comes face to face with others like him, diluting his isolation. But what he manages to do with this newfound family, will be intriguing to watch. Showrunner Jim Mickle was just as excited as fans are sure to be, hearing about the season 2 confirmation.
Sweet Tooth Showrunner Just As Excited

“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.” — Jim Mickle
Given how shows with kid leads work, production should begin on Sweet Tooth soon. In order to prevent the risk of Convery getting older and ageing out of how old he is in the series. Not to mention many of the other kid supporting characters in the series, introduced thus far. No news yet on when Sweet Tooth season 2 will air, much less when production will begin.
Sweet Tooth season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
