Netflix's Sweet Tooth Renewed For Season 2

Eight more episodes are on their way for the DC adaptation.


Netflix has announced that its live-action adaptation of the DC comic Sweet Tooth has been renewed for eight more episodes with a Season 2. The episodes will each run one hour.

Joining the creative behind-the-camera team for Season 2 is Oanh Ly (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), who will be an incoming co-executive producer. Ly will co-executive produce alongside the returning Jim Mickle, Linda Moran, and Team Downey's Susan Downey, Robert Downey Jr., and Amanda Burrell.

"It's been equally thrilling and heartwarming to experience how people around the world have been falling in love with our deer-boy," said Mickle, who is also writer-director and showrunner, in a press release. "We couldn't be more excited to continue our collaboration with Netflix and keep following Gus and his friends on their extraordinary journey."

Sweet Tooth is based on the Vertigo Comics (a DC imprint) series by Jeff Lemire. Its Netflix version premiered on June 4, and a reported 60 million member households watched at least some of the series in its first four weeks. 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.

Note that this series, while similarly named, has nothing to do with the plans to adapt Sony's video game Twisted Metal into a new TV series, which is rumored to have cast Will Arnett as the character Sweet Tooth.
