The first trailer for the upcoming Netflix show Sweet Tooth has been released. The show is based on Jeff Lemire's DC comic book, and it arrives on June 4.

Sweet Tooth is set 10 years after the emergence of "hybrids"--children who are born part-human, part-animal, and are now feared and hunted by humans. The show focuses on a hybrid deer-boy named Gus, who befriends an adult wanderer named Jepperd, and sets off on a dangerous adventure to find out about Gus's origins. It looks like an inventive mix of superhero series and post-apocalyptic fantasy--check the trailer out below:

Sweet Tooth stars Christian Convery (Pup Academy) as Gus and Nonso Anozie (Game of Thrones) as Jepperd, plus Stefania LaVie Owen (Messiah), Aliza Vellani (The Twilight Zone), and James Brolin (Traffic). The showrunners are Jim Mickle (In the Shadow of the Moon, Hap and Leondard) and Beth Schwartz (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow).

The comic book Sweet Tooth was published by the DC Comics imprint Vertigo, and was written and illustrated by Lemire. It ran for 40 issues between 2009 and 2013. The TV adaptation was originally set to be made by Hulu, but moved to Netflix in 2020.

The next big Netflix comic book adaptation is Jupiter's Legacy, which is based on Mark Millar's comic and arrives in May. Check out the latest Jupiter's Legacy trailer for more.
