Who knew that the post-apocalyptic dystopian world filled with hybrid children that is Sweet Tooth would be so successful for Netflix?
When Season 1 of Sweet Tooth premiered on June 4, 2021, over 60 million households watched it in its first four weeks.
Narrated by James Brolin, Sweet Tooth follows the life of Gus (Christian Convery), a ten-year-old human-deer hybrid who has been protected all of his life from the outside world.
But now Gus is on an adventure to find his mother. With only a picture and a general direction of Colorado, Gus sets off to connect with the woman he has never met.
Pairing up with the reluctant Tommy ‘Big Man’ Jepperd (Nonso Anozie, Zoo), a former member of the hybrid-hunting ‘Last Men’ and ‘Bear’; a human teenage girl fighting to protect hybrids (Stefania LaVie Owen), the three form a bond that will pull at your heartstrings.
Gus and Jepperd’s journey is as real as any other apocalypse story you care to name. And the series focuses beautifully on themes such as self-discovery, prejudice, and the beauty of an Earth healing without humanity sucking all the life out of it.
But we all want to know now is where is Sweet Tooth Season 3 and when is it coming to Netflix???
Sweet Tooth Season 3 Release Date
You always know when Netflix is on to a winner as they renew the show very quickly.
That's exactly what happened with Sweet Tooth season 3. On May 3rd, 2023, Netflix gave the thumbs up to a third season consisting of 8 1-hour episodes.
The really sad news is that it will also be the final season as we say goodbye to Gus and his great adventure.
But unlike the two-year gap between the first and second seasons, this time around we won't have to wait as long. Sweet Tooth season 3 has already been filmed in New Zealand.
Despite this, there is no way that Netflix will release it straight away so we will have to wait until 2024 to see how Gus's story ends.
As always, as soon as an announcement is made closer to the time, we will let you know!
Sweet Tooth Season 3 What Happens?
Sweet Tooth is based on the comic book of the same name by Jeff Lemire so we do have some idea where the series will go in season 3.
We left the second season as Gus made his obstacle-strewn journey to find a safe haven and learned more about his origins.
Knowing how far Birdie was willing to go to protect him and being warned about General Abbot's plans, Gus and his friends were gearing up to take a stand and defend the hybrid kids.
With Gus, Jepperd, Wendy and Bear setting out for icy Alaska, that is where season 3 will pick up.
Creator Jim Mickle has explained that season 3 will feature another road trip story like Season 1, but in a very different way.
Speaking to Tadum, Mickle said “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.
“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.
“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.”
